Independent Author, Illustrator

STORY OF ANDREW PAN
Writing and drawing has always been the two great passions of Pan's life. Doing both since he was very young, Pan has written freelance for local digital magazine collections and comedians during his time in Chicago and has made a great portfolio of artwork as a graphic designer for half a decade.
Taking most of his inspiration from Quentin Blake, Shel Silverstein and the like, Pan's future goals are to write and draw for personal projects including children's books, chapter books, picture books, novels and more.
A WebToon exploring Jewish Holidays
An ongoing project for Pan is exploring the themes, traditions, and histories of Jewish Holidays as he continues on his path of conversion to Judaism. Pan creates visuals for the holiday, sometimes in comic form and sometimes in infographic form, and then posts them to Instagram and WebToon.
INTO THE DOODLEVERSE
A Webtoon Series
In the year 2021 Pan made one doodle a day for all 365 days. He is now releasing those doodles monthly as a webcomic on WebToon. At the end of this release schedule he hopes to print the doodles in a single volume.
A CHINESE CREATION MYTH
A Short Illustrated Story
Pan's day job is as a middle school Social Studies teacher. He often has to create materials for his classes and in this instance, he compiled many aspects of Chinese myth into a short illustrated story for his students.

"I don't wait for inspiration. I'm not, in fact, quite sure what inspiration is, but I'm sure that if it is going to turn up, my having started work is the precondition of its arrival."
