{the interview series} Hsiao-Chi Chang

Wednesday, 15 January 2014

>> for the art and lifestyle lovers.
>> check here all the past interviews and follow us on facebook too!

Este novo ano de 2014 trará algumas novidades à rubrica {the interview seres}. Quero dedicar mais tempo ao trabalho na oficina, por isso a publicação das entrevistas será mais lenta e menos regular. Ainda assim não quero deixar de divulgar novos artistas, sempre que se cruzarem no meu caminho e me chamarem a atenção... por isso não deixem de seguir!

Hoje apresento-vos Hsiao-Chi Chang, a nossa primeira convidada deste ano: uma ilustradora de Taiwan, que vive em San Francisco e começa a sua carreira ligada à ilustração infantil com trabalhos simples, delicados e expressivos. As suas palavras inspiram, tal como os seus traços - desejo-vos uma boa leitura!

This new year of 2014 will bring some changes to {the interview seres}. I want to dedicate more time to my work in the workshop, so the publication of the interviews will be slower and less regular. Nevertheless I don't want to stop featuring new artists, when they cross my path and caught my eye... so keep following!

Today I present you Hsiao-Chi Chang, our first guest this year: an illustrator from Taiwan, who lives in San Francisco and begins her career in children illustration with simple, delicate and expressive works. Her words inspire as much as her drawing lines - I wish you a good read!
