Jie has been drawing since he could remember, having been influenced by his childhood best friend's older brother who was a good artist. He is completely self-taught, learning the ropes of digital illustration and drawing from observation and studying the works of the industry's leading professionals online. He is also a video game enthusiast. His first console was the Japanese Famicom.
He hopes to become a full-fledged freelance illustrator for the entertainment industry someday.
