Julien Chung

In JULIEN CHUNG'S world, cute animals with quirky personalities wander brightly colored scenes. By day he works for Montreal's La Presse+, the ground breaking news app, where he illustrates all sorts of things like superhero ducks, globe-trotting pigs and frolicking ladybugs. By night he creates even more off-the-wall characters that dress up a legion of products around the world, from beer glasses and pet dishes to Christmas ornaments and jigsaw puzzles. Despite his tendency towards the silly, he has been recognized by some pretty serious organizations, including 3x3 (New York), Applied Arts (Toronto) and the international Society for News Design. His illustrations for his first picture book, Le Velo de Petit Lion, have been shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards in London (2015). Visit his website for more.
