What an amazing illustrator Whooli Chen is. Hailing currently from Taiwan, she earned a MA degree at the University of the Arts London. Her delicately sketched elements are always coloured with a subdued and calming palette.

What about her masterful compositions? This is a skill that is essential for all illustrators: from editorial process to concept.

a perfect example (in 3 models)!
