art contests —

Growing up, I participated in many art contests, which were always a lot of fun! I've used various mediums including watercolor, copic markers, color pencil, and Photoshop. Here are some of the recurrent contests I participated in and the progress in my submissions through the years.

99 Ranch Mother's Day Contest

Each year, 99 Ranch Market, a Chinese supermarket chain, hosts a Mother's Day Art Contest in the spring. Ever since elementary school, my dream had been to take the grand prize trophy home.

Doodle4Google

Google hosts an annual Doodle4Google art contest, and participants have a chance of claiming the coveted space of the Google Doodle for 24 hours. As an avid fan of Google Doodles, it had been my dream to one day have my doodle seen by the world.

I've never taken a formal Adobe Photoshop course. Instead, I've picked up and built my skillset in Photoshop through miscellaneous projects in creating flier designs or merchandise designs for clubs or organizations.

Flyer Designs

In high school, I wasn't ever interested in being the president of a club. Management was not my forte, but I really love drawing things with my Wacom tablet, so instead I decided to be the publicity officer for many clubs and create digital fliers in Adobe Photoshop.

Merchandise

I had always been a fan of collecting merch from attending various events. Whenever I had a chance to make a t-shirt or other customized design, I would jump on the opportunity. These are some of the designs I've accumulated over the years.
