Dingding Hu, who works as an illustrator, is a life observer, color lover, and storyteller who is aimed at making juice out of everyday ordinary. She specializes in illustrating scenes, characters and objects, and believes that storytelling should not be limited by media. She has made stickers for Google Allo, illustrated map of Chinatown for MOCA NYC, as well as drawn hot dogs for Lucky Peach Magazine, among other projects. Dingding has exhibited her work around the world, and have received a silver medal from Comic and Cartoon Annual by Society of Illustrators.
Raised in the spicy food heaven, Szechuan (China), and settled in the global food headquarter, New York, food has been Dingding’s destiny all along the way. In 2016 she started to create her own product line, Hu is Hungry, a stationery and gifts collection that is related to food in multiple facets, taking a strong influence from modern cuisine and comedy scene as well as contemporary art and graphic design.
Ding Ding loves to travel, and went to Sao Tome and Principe in Africa in the summer of 2012. She is now living and working in NYC, where she is either drawing or busy feeding her stomach and mind, and researching new ways of fulfilling her ever-persistent hunger.
