GirlsclubAsia-Artist-Eve_Liu

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hi, I’m eve, a lifestyle illustrator and product designer with dreams of becoming a dog groomer. Recently, I’m experimenting with animated artworks and background design.

 

Describe the city you’re living in and what it’s like to live there.

New York is like a condensed version of Global Village to me. I even like the less “perfect” and chaotic places here. The recent #stopasianhate movement made me understand why this city is the center of an immigrant country, which is one of the reasons I like New York.
