How were your illustrations used? :
College or university project, Magazine or newspaper inside or spot illustration/s

How did you make this work:
Even the biggest city has its marginalized groups, who are often ignored by the public. I use collage to reflect the enthusiasm and sincerity of the local people towards life. I hope that the society could pay more attention to the urban villages and the marginalized groups living there, and give them more love and help.
