Chen-Ying Lu

   
       
                          


What amazed me as I went through the mass of images gathered from the Bologna festival this year was the number of them that originated from the new graduates of the Anglia Ruskin MA in Illustration
These are two from the book Tear Drop Day by Taiwanese illustrator Chen-Ying Lu.
Chen-Ying Lu has a habit of 'Bearlizing' people, as she calls it. Her observations of people of all ages get translated into her own visual language of bears, a sensitive, soft, delicate language that is easy to understand.
