I have been working as an archi tacture designer since my graduation, I work as a freelancer illustrator and designer in spare time.I searched inspritions from movies and games respectively and was invited to showcase my artworks on the Blizzard official website for several times as the most recognized inoffical illustrator related to World of Warcraft. I also attended the Blizzard Carnival in 2011 with invitation.
In recent years, I have been immersed in creations of the glass painting style artworks among which the recreation of Lord of the Rings series won me many honors. My first contact to the trilogy was when the movie directed by Peter Jackson was on the show in 2002, I read the Lord of the Rings and the Hobits books after I saw the movie. I doodled some pictures for fun, much to the visual effect of the movie than to substantial appreciation for the masterpiece itself. I gained a more profound understanding though extensive reading later, now I would read the novel every 2 years, whenever I read it I will forget time passing and keep reading thoughout the whole night.
Then I had a chance to know the glass painting style and felt it must be great If I adopt this style to tell a story because it was endowed with a sense of religious magnificence yet the plot is usually unsophisticated, with reasonable arrange of the images, a chapter from the book could be represented in a single picture.
It happened that the Deviantart website was hosting an online Lord of the Rings fan art challenge and an artwork of mine Rest in Gildor's Forest was positively approved, then I started to create the Lord of the Rings series.
Later my artworks Roselolin’s Gift and The Grieve Over A Twilight Star received favorable comments and being posted on international websites,eventually they were selected into the One Ring exhibition in Los Angeles in 2013.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that a store on Etsy called topcustomhk is selling your artwork on an iPhone case. I just wanted to know if you gave them permission to use your art before buying one.

I love the style you use on your Middle-Earth illustrations! It is something different from what I normally see. It is very dynamic too which brings the story to life.
