zeng


Have you seen Chinese artist and designer zeng? I absolutely fell in love with her artwork the first time I clicked into her shop. I was so pleased that she agreed to be interviewed for Such Cool Stuff!

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

Selling my artwork 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 make in our own life some colour and surprise!

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
I’m a professional designer and illustrator! I’m doing some design work for Chinese companies in order to support myself. I major in home product design, such as beds, chairs, storage, and everything about our lives. Art works sold in my Etsy shop are just my hobbies. When design work makes me tired, I will do these fair art works. I will have a rest and find fun from them.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
I have no time to draw!! I'm so busy! I need more time to run my shop.

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
I want to become the rabbit in this art work!

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
Artist and designer!

What does your future hold?
Long term I want to develop my product which is designed by myself, then sell on the network. Now I’m working together with my friend to do product design. Then search for factories and put our design into real products.
