Heya! I'm Poan, a London-based freelance illustrator from Taiwan known for whimsical illustrations with a soft palette and coloured pencils. My work celebrates the movement and warmth of humanity, capturing the essence of awkwardness and quirkiness in everyday life.

Resonating with daily life's awkwardness, my illustrations reflect the quirks and nuances of human posture and movement. I inspire viewers to embrace their uniqueness and find joy in unexpected moments. With an optimistic colour palette, I convey the magic of humanity, inviting others to appreciate the beauty in our imperfections.
