Concept Art, Illustration & Visual Developer
Joseph Qiu has been obsessed with illustrating the world and the people around him since early childhood. While other children yearned for toys and candies, he was always happiest with a pencil and paper. At school, he filled his books with doodles and his desk with elaborate imagery. His school friends became walking art canvases, their clothing adorned with his intricate hand-drawn patterns.
After attaining a Bachelor of Graphic Design at Auckland University of Technology, Joseph quickly became a sought after illustrator working mainly in the area of commercial art and publishing.
