Pongshu is the Chinese pronunciation of chubby mouse: Pong (胖) + Shu (鼠).
My zodiac is the mouse, and was chubby growing up, thus "Pongshu" became my natural nickname. More often, I identify more with being called Pongshu than my real name. I somehow feel that Pongshu represents the child I was and still somehow am. I love creating stories about Pongshu's friends, what they do, where they are from. I hope people can get to know and love the whimsical world Pongshu lives 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, when I started creating an imaginary world for all the animals and stories I came up with since little. I have helped illustrate a travel book, produced calendars, designed characters for a children's education company, and am currently working on multiple children's book collaborations.
