About Jing Jing Tsong
My illustration combines traditional printmaking and digital techniques to create vibrant compositions of color, pattern and texture. With a focus on multi-cultural concepts, the patterns I incorporate add layers of meaning and cultural context, enhancing the power of each image.
My work has been recognized by international and design publications. I illustrated the New York Times Best Selling Children's Picturebook, A Bucket of Blessings (by Kabhir Sheghal and Surishtha Sehghal, published by Simon and Schuster). 2 of my illustrations are included in the United States Postal Service 2014 Winter Fun Forever Stamps.
