For Victoria Lin, it’s hard to get up early to work, hard to think clearly, hard to cope with interpersonal relationships, hard to drink coffee, hard to do many things... However, it’s good that she can make a living by drawing.
She likes to try a variety of styles, but cannot necessarily do a good job using each one. Recently she likes to use a little bit of horror in her work. Her illustrations can be seen in newspapers, books and magazines.
