Meet Shenho Hshieh

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shenho Hshieh.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I was born and raised in Northern California. As I child, I was deeply influenced by popular Western cartoons and Japanese anime. I didn’t plan on becoming a professional illustrator until I was the age of 21. Before then, I attended various universities as a Mathematics major. I made a career transition to illustration, because I felt that the work was something that I could enjoy doing for the rest of my life.

Please tell us about your art.
I create narrative illustrations, specifically for publishing. I primarily work in acrylic inks with a touch of photoshop. My art usually depicts a moment in time, and it is heavily inspired by illustrators from the 1950’s. All in all, I just want people to enjoy my illustrations.

Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
I personally think it’s a good idea to find another job to help with the financial difficulties of being an artist. The job doesn’t necessarily have to be related to the creative or artistic path.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
People can view my work at my website, They can also follow my Instagram @shenhohshieh.
