Sophia Hotung

WRITER & ILLUSTRATOR

I'm a Eurasian writer and illustrator from Hong Kong based in Hong Kong and San Francisco. I work on commission for brands, galleries, and organisations to create writing and illustrations for books, art pieces, covers, and digital and print media.

 

As a chronic illness patient and advocate, I also speak at schools and public and private events about working while disabled and the future of creative work.

Latest news:

On 1 December I was honoured to win the South China Morning Post's 11th Spirit of Culture Award for my work creating art to fundraise for local charities in Hong Kong

My artwork is currently available to view and purchase at:

• Chubb Life's new customer service gallery on 35/F Windsor House, Causeway Bay

Equal Justice and I just auctioned the 1/1 original prints of our Everyday Justice collection to raise funds for their charity that seeks to close the justice gap in Hong Kong. We are crunching the numbers at the moment but raised over HK $120,000 during launch night

I illustrated and wrote The Stowaways Symphony, a picture book about concert-going and music appreciation in celebration of The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra's 50th anniversary. The book is available through Hong Kong booksellers. All proceeds support the HK Phil.
