Shadow Chen is a super talented illustrator based out of Ningbo, China. Her work oozes with creativity and bursts with color.

Chen says that she draws inspiration from her friends, traditional paintings, street art, fashion, and most of all, music. Listening to music with a beat, she says, helps her bring out the emotion in her work.

Regarding her process, she says: "When it comes to illustration with more specific styles with characters I always spend lot of time on the sketching. Usually I will draw more than one sketch, maybe 3 or 4, and then digitalize it on PC."
