It's the first day of the Year of Monkey.
Wishing you all the very best in the New Year!
When I was living in Birmingham in 1999, my mate Igor from Moscow came to visit me.
He brought me 2 bottles of Vodka, 2 tins of caviar and 15 heavy metal CD albums.
Igor made dinner, we had pancake and caviar. We also downed the whole bottle of Vodka and finished a bag of tomatoes at the same time.
I've written the whole story in Chinese and submitted to the biggest newspaper in Taiwan, United Daily News.
An illustration workshop was arranged on 16 June 2015, and quite a few people signed up actually.
Apart from sharing my professional experience and work ethics, I also arranged some proper tasks for students to experience what it's like to be commissioned.
The feedback was really positive and the students all enjoyed the workshop. :-)
I've been invited to create a series of window mural at Café Müssion in Taipei. The exhibition will be on 07/05/2015 - 10/07/2015.
Got 35% finished on day 1. Will have to go back on 10/05 and 14/05 2015 to finish everything.
Thanks to my agent, Stunden Illustration, for the great opportunity!!

I've been working with CEDAW (Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women) in Taiwan to raise awareness of equality of sexes and helping the vulnerable women.
It's always been a pleasure to work with them!
You can see my work at their exhibition unit in Taipei Book Fair 2015.
I've been busy. Very busy!
