Hello! I’m Bonnie from the tiny city of Hong Kong. I illustrate children’s books and make comics. When I’m not drawing, I love to cook simple meals, bake bread and pastries, and play with my family dog Milky the Pomeranian.
I love animals - to draw them and to help them by living a greener lifestyle!
