My Autobiography: As an Illustrator

Yuxin Yang or Lily was an American Illustrator who was born January 30, 1999, in China, Fuzhou and move to US, New York after finishing third grade. I was educated in New York City College of  Technology from Fall 2017 to Spring 2019. I was accepted and decided to transfer to the Fashion Institute of Technology in Fall 2019 for the Illustration program. Some of the unique qualities I have developed to become a productive artist is to have imagination, creativity and assiduous. I evolved as an artist over the years by practice, accumulate experience, rich imagination and broaden horizons. Art is not only in painting but also in architecture, music, dance, and culture. Travel is a good opportunity to learn from different cultures. So I have at least one international travel a month. I visited France last summer and let me have a deeper understanding of art in Louvre. And I plan to visit different countries and learn about their culture and arts. People, experiences and other sources that continue to inspire me to be creative is to look at different people’s or students artwork and gain experience from a different professional teacher. I have the skills of using Adobe CC Software, such as Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop,  and some basic hand coding skill (HTML, CSS) for web design. My personal Interests is to do digital drawing, illustrating, watercoloring, during the break I like to traveling, keeping pets, Raising plants.

I have been very fond of drawing since I was a child, but I have never known what I really want to do. There are too many careers related to drawing but I have never been able to find a profession I like to develop. Like everyone, there are changes to the goals that I’m looking for at different stages. When I was in elementary school to junior high school, I only knew that I really like drawing. I didn’t know the profession about painting except for art teachers and artist. So I wanted to be an art teacher or open a painting exhibition. After I was in high school, I’m pretty sure I want to be a designer, but whenever someone asks me what type of designer I want to be, I don’t know how to answer, and I always answered them awkwardly, I haven’t thought about it yet, although I have always thought about this question many times, I think I will study in graphic design major, but I don’t know much about this major and I don’t know if this major is right for me, this problem has been bothering until I went to college. Before going to college, many of my talented friends gave up their design majors. Some even changed their majors after they had studied design because they and their parents felt that designer profession competition was too strong and they couldn’t make much money. But I think that compared to a career that I don’t like, I want to turn my favorite things into my profession. I felt like this kind of life are complete, and I won’t regret it. When I was in my second year of college, I had a friend who also studies communication design, she talked about the illustration major with me, after listening to it, I was a little bit interested. After that, I queried more about the illustration online, but this is not enough, and I want to know more about this major and learn it, so I want to transfer to Fashion Institute of Technology and learn more about illustration.

Name one or two that you like best and say why. Who is their audience? What sort of language do they use?
I like hand drawing/illustrating and watercolor the best because I think drawings can tell more than just words and gives people more Imagination and creativity. Also, different drawing style and media or the decision of using what type of drawing tools can define a person‘s identity and their genres.  My audience can be my major teachers, classmates, and people who have the chance to critique the drawings. And people tend to use art words, such as color, Composition, Tone, Texture, Mood, lighting…etc.
What is your understanding of the term “genre”?
My understanding of the term “genre” is the style on which people defined themselves, people can have many different genres and become a person’s identity/personality.

When I’m not in school…I realize… I paused for a few moments and did nothing, I noticed…

When I’m not in school, I spend all of my time at home, when I wake up, I realize half of the time passed. I paused for a few moments and did nothing, I noticed, time went fast it’s already noon, I haven’t done anything yet, just staring at space dazing, why there is so many homework? when can I take a break? I’m so hungry, maybe I should take time playing with my two Guinea pigs. What’s next?  What homework should I start with? what course I have for tomorrow? What should I eat for lunch? Dinner?  And tomorrow? what foods need to buy for next week? The same questions repeat every day. Oh, my brain hurts, I think I should stop thinking.

My Fear and Cure

My worst fear is communicated with others, I’m very resistant to communicate with the stranger and speak in front of people because I’m afraid I didn’t arrange my sentence well and correctly express my needs or even I didn’t even know what I’m asking for. I like to make friends, but I’m a passive person. Every time I speak, I become nervous, so I think it’s a long and hard process to change my fear.

 

My cure is enjoyed with my guinea pigs, anime,comic ,ice cream,crepes, ignore every anxious.
