This is a custom order, the client would like to have a Wanchai street view illustration in their office in Wanchai. I picked a selection of Wanchai landmarks and created a collage. The Methodist church locates at the heart of Wanchai – junction between Hennessy Road and Johnston Road – it is an important component in Wanchai urban landscape, so I centre it in the picture.
An urban scenery illustration for the online promotion of Tory Burch’s new boutique opened in Alexandra House, Central. The fashion brand asked me to adapt their Spring Summer 2018 fabric patterns, which was inspired by the works of David Hicks, a legendary English interior designer, into an urban scenery painting. The illustrated work also turned into an animated short video.

I illustrated a 360-degree panoramic pictorial game for Kiehl’s, used as an online facebook advertisement campaign. 25 bottles of the brands’ beauty products are merged with the "Hong Kong × New York" street-life drawing, the audience were invited to interact with this hide-and-seek visual game, by responding to Facebook comments.
An illustrated City Central map for The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel. City maps are at most challenging for illustrators when everything needed to be drawn with proportional scale. In this commissioned map, we spent long hours in perfecting the visual balance between the buildings and nearby main roads. It proved worthwhile, as the outcome is elegant and user-friendly, a great match for the hotel’s renewed heritage design.
