Jackie he and Penelope

Shibas and sushi just belong together.

Chicago-based illustrator and concept artist Jiaqi He blends adorable creatures, delicious treats and beloved pop culture characters into her vibrant watercolor world. Embracing the unpredictable nature of the medium, she creates imaginative storyscapes—from animals cavorting in edible wonderlands to nostalgic and emotive visuals inspired by film and TV.

Each design has been personally inspected by Penelope (Jiaqi’s cat), who adds a little bit of love by walking all over every new creation.
