100 People I Met on Street

6” x 9”
Ink on Paper


100 People I Met on Street, is an ongoing quick sketch project that I started in 2015. I have been drawing portraits of people I meet or know during my time traveling to the United States from Taiwan, living in America as an ESL learner, and working in New York as an instate citizen. I use drawing as a cross-cultural non-verbal communication tool. You never know the content just by looking at a book cover page. I translate the personality, temperatures, conversations and memories I experienced from them into colors, marks, and gestures.  I believe each person I draw is unique and has a precious gift for me.
