Day 145: Drawing Guji Guji with Chih-Yuan Chen

Borrowed from Wikipedia and Gecko Press.
Chih-Yuan Chen (Chinese陳致元; born 1975), three-time winner of the prestigious Hsin Yi Picture Book Award, is a renowned picture book writer and illustrator from Taiwan. Several of his books have been translated into English, including Guji Guji, the story of a 'crocoduck' described in a review by The New York Times as having "vivid characters...rendered with wit and warmth".
Chen is a three-time winner of the Hsin Yi Picture Book Award. The English-language translation of Guji Guji was an ALA Notable Children's Book and appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List.
"It is my hope that children from all over the world can learn to accept different people and things, and see the world with broader views and minds."
