The main character in illustrations is to take myself as prototype to design an image with tiny little eyes, flat nose and spoon face. To record the funny things in daily life in the way of illustration. For instance: I like the package of Budweiser, and then imagine a picture in my mind:” Hey, give me a pine of Budweiser, buddy.’ Meanwhile, as the inspiration is enlightened by its package, there is another picture showing again. The red stuff could always attract me. When brushing my teeth, I suddenly imagine the target of Colgate may be not only no decayed teeth. I can even imagine it evolves to a shark in my tooth glass. When reading the essay, Want to Fly, written by Xu Zhimo, there is a saying that everyone wants to fly. It is so bored to stay on the ground. This also inspired me for the creation of my illustrations There must be confused moment in our life. This is the reason for me to create the illustration named Travel to the West.
