I'm Cinyee Chiu, a Taiwanese illustrator now staying in Philadelphia, USA. I got my MFA from Illustration Practice MFA in Maryland Institute College of Art.
I usually draw traditionally and later collage them digitally, using gouache, charcoal, pastel, pencil, ink, etc.. I like to play with textures and colors, and have a preference of using warm colors. I always have great interest in book illustration, book cover and children's book. Nature, plants, animals are topics appears a lot in my works.
I enjoy making conceptual illustrations, and continuously working on editorial illustrations sharpen my ability of transferring texts into appealing informative visual stories .I also have experience in character design, making art for board game and animation (see Gallery.) Clients include PLANADVISER, Johns Hopkins Health Review, Nocturnal, Big Fun Idea, ThunderGryph Games, etc.
To work with my clients, I first discuss with them to have a brief idea about the style and feel they want, and then I propose some sketches and style test. You can also point out which of my previous works presents the ideal style, that helps me understand your need.
I can also do animations and gifs. For my thesis picture book project I did a 50s trailer, which I think is a great way to promote the book.
