Does the daily grind get to you? Why not try a dash of color and a dose of pattern. We’ve got just the recipe, with Jennifer Liu vibrant digital artwork.
“I do feel very daring when it comes to experimenting with color, and I often push myself to create a palette that is different from the one I used for the last project,” admitted the Chinese-born, Toronto-based illustrator in an interview with Communication Arts Daily. “Limited color palettes have never really been my thing, but I think it’s important to exercise restraint when needed and be tasteful with my color choices.”
With a Bachelor’s degree in illustration from OCAD University, Toronto, Liu says that she often incorporates what she learned in her painting classes into her work. But a heritage also has an important role in her art.
“As I grow older, I find myself wanting to reconnect with my Chinese heritage, especially since China has now developed as a country within such a short span of time,” she admitted.
“Growing up as a second-generation Chinese person in North America, I craved more Asian representation in the media. I think that’s why I’ve always been so drawn to Asian entertainment; it was something I could easily identify with and relate to even if I couldn’t completely understand the languages right away.”
