Hello there and I’m Jo Cheung. I’m a freelance illustrator and designer whose work ranges from a variety of mediums: magazine articles, web graphics, and greeting card designs. Originally from Doncaster, I moved to London to study illustration at The University of Westminster and has since resided in North London.
My work often depicts imaginary, dreamy and surreal landscapes as I’m interested in the complex and conflicting relationship between animals and humans. I incorporate a lot of hand drawn images, collages and paintings within my work and then it’s digitally altered on the computer. I use a lot of textures, shapes, patterns and colours. My inspiration comes from people and places I see and visit on a day to day basis, conversations, music, travelling to different places, nature, and my own imagination.
Most of my work is self-initiated and I sell my work on my Etsy shop as well as taking part in craft markets in London.
I work from my home studio, up in the attic, and my two cats (Mario and Toshka) keep me company.
