Melanie Yu graduated from Art Center College of Design in December 2014 majoring in Illustration with a focus on entertainment arts. She was born and raised in a small coastal town in northern China, then in 2007 she moved to LA to live with her mother. As a young teenage girl she liked daydreaming and doodling on the back of old quiz papers. She is gradually developing ways to tell a story through her art under the influence of a number of artists, including Hayao Miyazaki, Eyvind Earle, Alice Provensen, and many many others.
