Hello! My name is Zi Xu and I am an illustrator, poster artist, and concept designer. I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2018 with a B.F.A. in Illustration and Art History.
My main body of work combines my love for traditional ink painting, science-fiction, and classic cinema. Besides doing promotional and concept work, I’ve also worked as a technical illustrator for archaeologists in Colorado. This year, my work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators and ImagineFX!
