Pongshu is the Chinese pronunciation of chubby mouse: Pong (胖) + Shu (鼠).
My zodiac is the mouse. Being chubby growing up, "Pongshu" became my natural nickname. Oftentimes, I identify more with being called Pongshu. I love creating stories about Pongshu's friends, what they do, where they are from, and most of all, the whimsical world that they live in.
Though an economics professor by day, my secret passion for drawing has fueled me to draw whenever and wherever I can. My art journey began again in April 2017. I have helped illustrate a travel book, produced calendars, and designed characters for a children's education company since. Currently working on multiple children's book collaborations.
