Meet our next Artist of the Week, Martin Hsu from California! Martin is an artist who has been around for quite some time but Emerald City Comicon was his first convention! He has done many t-shirt designs, and illustrations for Disney, and has created his own original artwork as well. We came across his booth and I noticed one of my favorite prints of his that I came across a while ago, called Lily's Kitty. It reminded me of a Miyazaki word!
He integrates elements of culture and animals into his pieces, that's what I love about it. Check out what he had to say about himself, what inspires him when he designs, and more! More examples of his work can be viewed after the video.
You can purchase his work on his website: Martin Hsu
