Hi I'm Heng Zeng. I am an illustrator with a focused interest in commissioned assignments and children’s books. I graduated from Syracuse University with a M.F.A. (Illustration) degree.


  Most of my work is created digitally. I also make textures with brayer and brush on different kinds of paper, and scan them to include in my digital illustrations. To enjoy a process different from digital drawing, I draw in my sketchbook with acrylic, watercolor, and markers. In addition to drawing illustrations, I also do media design, such as making short animation. I love cartoon style illustrations and comics, especially magical themes and amazing creatures in fairy tale style. I Love imagining, and makes every single scene of imagination into illustrations.
