I am Ziyoo, an illustrator and animator.
I left from South Korea, laid over in China, then landed in the UK.
After studying illustration,
I fell in love with moving images and am now adapting it to share my stories.
Let’s escape from the world you’ve known before.
Hope you enjoy walking around my headspace.
