I am so excited and honored that I am going to attend DesignerCon this month, November 12th - 14th, as a vendor.
"DesignerCon is an annual art and design convention that smashes together collectible toys, customs, plush, designer apparel and so much more with urban, underground and pop art! We are a celebration of all aspects from the world of design." -- DesignerCon

It is a small milestone for me to be able to participate in this event. It's not only because this is an excellent platform to display my works; more importantly, I also have the opportunity to communicate with other outstanding artists and the first-hand feedback from customers.
Back in early 2020, I started the idea of making a personal website to archive my designs. It took three months from choosing the primary colors and fonts to the official launch. I have been designing icons and instant messaging stickers, inspired by the simple, beautiful things in daily life. One day I tried to make them into enamel pins, t-shirts, and so on. I guess someone will have them like me and can feel some simple little happiness. After six months, I sold the first item. Later, I have more and more customers, and I have received many valuable reviews. Then later, I successfully obtained a registered trademark YIHAN®.
I have always believed that this matter is not only an aesthetic but also a philosophy of life. Even on difficult and dark days, what can help you is the things you believe in, the good things, and the things you like.
