Bao Bao is a collaborative project with Peipei Zhou, a friend and Brooklyn mom, who wanted to create a bilingual sound book to teach her own son Chinese.

I did the branding, illustration, character design, typesetting, animations for the pronounciation videos, web design, listing design, promotional materials, and developed marketing and social media strategies.

My senior thesis project combines illustration with my love of nature and conservation.

I grew up outside Boston in Revere, Massachusetts, and was fascinated by the variety of life that thrived in the urban area. I spent my summers walking along rocky shores looking for sand dollars and sea anemone. I wrote and illustrated this story to inspire children to protect the ecosystem around them.
