I'm Zijun, born in China and studied illustration in New York. I had a very traditional painting background such as oil painting and drawing. Back then my major inspirations were from the old masters of the Europeans. Once I started doing commercial illustration, I’m trying to combine a more playful and humorous style because I found a great joy making people laugh. Therefore I expand my inspirations to comic book, Japanese prints and entertainment industry. No matter how much I’ve learned, there is always great knowledge and inspirations to be discovered. So I consider myself as a life-long student of art and culture.
