Zeng

I'm so excited to share the art of Zeng Ye from FuZhou ,China of Zeng. She sells some of the coolest prints- I will not attempt to describe them- they speak for themselves. She says "Selling my art work is just selling my fair dream. I think the real world is so normal, as a designer I want to do something different. I think I can give our own lives some colour and surprise!" I think she is right....

What is your real life like?
I'm single.I’m a graduate student in Chinese art school and I’m also a professional designer and illustrator! I’m doing some design work for Chinese company's in order to support myself. I major in home product design such as beds, chairs, storage and everything about our lives. Art work sold on my Etsy shop and drawing are just my hobbies.When my design work makes me tired I will do this art work. I will have a rest and find fun from them.

What is your process?
The main tool I use is software such as Photoshop CS , Paint and Cinema 4D. I also take some photos with my cameras. When I have time, I will see Disney movies and look through my favourite art and design books in order to find inspiration.


Business Goals and Vision...
My short term goal is try to expand my current business on Etsy. After one or two months I will add my original hand drawing on my Etsy shop. Long term I want to develop my home products which are designed by myself, then sell on the network. Now I’m working together with my teacher to do home product design, then search for factories and put our design into products. In the long term- I have another very important thing -I think I should find a good man then get married.

Do you subscribe to any business related blogs, zines or magazines?
I buy some software books. If I want to read magazines or other books, I will go to the library.


What inspires you?
Everything which is beautiful, such as flowers ,bags, drawing, sweet girls, handsome boys or just a strange word.


What are two of your favorite things from your shop?
a rabbit girl and a cat with a mask (second image)

a rabbit lady- third image (I hope one day I can become this rabbit lady.Go to anywhere if I want)

Am a fan of these places...
