Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Melissa Lui Yuen, and I illustrate under ‘mellopoly’. I am a full time public servant doing illustration and artwork on the side. My favourite things to do during my down time are brunch with friends, running and drawing (of course!).

Do you have a favourite side project of your own?

My mellopoly illustration work is my side project 🙂

I am also working on merchandising ideas (like wrapping paper and cards) so that I can share my art with more people.

What does “living creatively” mean to you?

To cultivate a sense of wonder in day to day life, to be open to inspiration, and to bring something into the world that wasn’t there before.

Keeping my two fiddle leaf figs alive (they’ve survived five months so far, and counting).

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Be brave.
