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.

Please daydream,

be absurd,

be imaginative!

Let’s escape from the world you’ve known before.


Hope you enjoy walking around my headspace.
