About me

Hi! I'm chiyunyeh, my friends always call me "Yo". I'm an illustrator and designer. I was born and raised on a small but beautiful island, Taiwan. I'm working as a web designer at a Japanese design studio. I draw things and people who I saw on the train or on the street. I only use two colors, "Red" and "Blue". I like to draw still life as well as an illustration from my imagination.
