Available to hire

My name is Qian and I am a Graphic Illustrator.

I earned my BFA in Illustration at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in May 2018 and am currently a Freelance Illustrator looking for projects to work on. My most recent work was with the fundraising project Pacific Arcana: Tumultus where I created an image based on the tarot card The Empress and combined it with imagery from the movie Pacific Rim: Uprising. (See my portfolio for the image.)

My work tends to be flat with line and minimal shading for extra flourishes combined with strong contrasting color schemes to make an image really pop. I tend to lean more towards what can be the brightest and loudest without being too overwhelming for a viewer so that a person can be enticed to look at my imagery but it won’t hurt them to look at the piece for too long. Additionally I like to work with handlettering and poster layouts due to my own interest in working more in that field of design.

For application skills I fully understand Adobe programs Photoshop and InDesign with additional intermediate knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, Premiere, and AfterEffects. I prefer working mostly traditionally but I also like to scan my work in and finish it off on my computer so I am also well versed in photo editing and color correcting.

Please take a look at my portfolio for samples of my work. You can contact me through my email at or through here!

$120 per day ($15 per hour)

Industry Experience:
Media & Entertainment, Non-Profit Organization, Retail
