The inspiration came from the desire to share my frustrations about the recent rise in violence against asians, due to the pandemic, in an approachable format without diluting the truth. Having conversations about racism can be uncomfortable so I thought using cute art would capture people's attention, while leaving them with an important message to reflect on.

Illustrated subjects are inspired by items you'd commonly find in Chinatown, while the hand-lettered phrases are inspired by my personal experiences or by others in the Asian-American community.
