Thunderlittle born in 17 April 1984, she is an illustrator and comic artist. Her first publish in the that is  a Hong Kong Comic Magazine. She studied photography in HKVTC .After her graduation, she works as a full-time comic artist , showing her works in different magazine. She is now working as a freelancer in magazine in HK. The first art work  of thunderlittle I saw is from Design Festa 2009 in Tokyo, I think her works are really representing Hong Kong style. The colors, figures are showing the energy of Hong Kong.

The <Scene > Collection

This series of art pieces showing in Design Festa 2009, it is about the city site of Hong Kong night. Her drawings show Hong Kong as a busy, west-meet-east city. There are a nice use of color presenting the night scene in Hong Kong, and it is a good choice to use neon-light and the soho area as the main element of whole collection .



The <Hungary Gal >, and Collection

This collection is very girlish style illustration, applying the element of Japanese Comic. In these illustrations, you can see the eyes and the facial expression of the gal just like the icon in Japanese Comic, but Thunderlittle adding warm color tone and chinese girl outfit in the illustration. It is a combination of Japan and China style, and we can also see thunderlittle applied Utagawa Kuniyoshi drawing style in those illustration, it is a good practice to add all of this style in one drawing.The other collections like and < Loser>, Thunderlittle builds up her own style of illustrations , they also present the mix cultures of Hong Kong.

The <Hugging> collection

Actually, this series of illustrations don’t called as collection , I take this name because it all about the message of relationship. I like this series very much, it tells about the story of relationship between human beings (as a group, a family) and the relationship between human beings and animals. Thunderlittle also apply a new drawing technique in this series, she use simple lines and colors in this collection. The new illustrations just like some european style drawings, and still keeping the drawing style of thunderlittle.

Now, Thunderlittle is working on her own comic series ,  the story is about our environment and the protection of it. This comic has Chinese and French version, and I can see that Thunderlittle using the city scene of Hong Kong as background with her own style of drawings.

By the way, Thunderlittle also help Hong Kong artist Hocc to draw some new figures in her MV.
