‘The Shanghairen’ is the literal translation ‘Shanghainese’ in Chinese. It is a collaborative project gathering dozens of artists from Shanghai and abroad who were offered to express their vision of the city with a complete freedom of style and topic.

As part of the project, my illustration is inspired by the iconic Shanghai breakfast fried dough, sesame pancake, savoury soy milk and steamed sticky rice with fried dough wrapped. I used this cover to reflect upon a profound and personal memory, in hopes that it will soothe those who miss their hometown flavours.

‘The Shanghairen’的中文名为沪誌;
它是一个由来自上海和世界各地的百位插画艺术家共同创作的创意项目。每位艺术家执鲜明笔触和个人故事,自由地创作和表达他们心中的上海。

这张封面的灵感来源于上海著名的早餐“四大金刚”:大饼、油条、粢饭和咸豆浆。我选用这张封面来表达我对老上海市民生活的追忆以及对其深厚的个人情感,也借此表达了所有游子对家乡的思念之情。
