Beijing-born freelance illustrator Fan Wu creates a sense of adventure and child-like joy in his beautiful animal and environmental illustrations, including upcoming children’s book Friends from the Ocean. For inspiration, all it takes is a short trip to the park or zoo and his tiny sketchbook.

Fan graduated from Kendall College of Art & Design this Spring, and has been freelancing from Michigan for digital and print publication houses. Despite being a recent graduate, he’s illustrated for magazines for six years and received numerous awards.
