My name is Bonnie Bui and I am currently a student at Santa Ana College. I am a Computer Science and English major, although, I have always had an interest in the arts. I am unsure of my career goals at the moment. I definitely want to continue studying animation even if it will not be my future profession. I love art, and animation will always be a part of my hobbies regardless of my career. Thank you and please enjoy my art!
- I love anime; I grew up watching a lot of it on Saturday morning television. A lot of my original art style derives from anime as a result.
- I love video games! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, the Pokémon series, and the Assassin’s Creed series will always be my favourites.
- I’ve always wanted to be a voice actress.
- Some of my favourite animated shows include: Voltron: Legendary Defender, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, We Bare Bears, Star vs. The Forces of Evil, Steven Universe, Pokémon, and more.
- A few of my role models include: Tim Burton, Ken Sugimori (杉森 建), Thomas Astruc, Jeremy Zag, Daniel Chong, Alex Hirsch, and Rebecca Sugar.
About My Art
- A lot of my art consists of fantasy elements.
- Sometimes my art may be dark and depressing.
- These themes revolve around representation of mental illness and the battle against them.
- I typically prefer traditional media, but with my busier schedule I have been gravitating more towards digital art.
- I am still learning.
