Lolo HoiHoi – Seven Creative Questions for HK Illustrator Clayton Chau

***

Anyone interested in illustration should check out the “Aubergine” experiences of Lolo Hoihoi, the creation of Hong Kong-based artists Wing Lo and Sheung Yin “Clayton” Chau.

As Clayton says: “The story is about the daily life of two girls that everyone may encounter. In fact we have so many memories especially about our travelling experience. I’d like to draw it out as the Lolo Hoihoi story, and let it share what life’s about.

“Lolo was born having an aubergine-like face, and has a happy, yet tricky life. Hoihoi is a blessed Chinese girl with a kind heart.

“These ‘Aubergine’ stories (lolo / 路路, hoi hoi / 海海) are about their interesting life. We often face difficulties in our life and we hope they can make you recall something happy in your own.”
