Flora Chang - Happy Doodle Land

Flora Chang is a graphic designer for work but her illustrations foretell a bright future - a future I look forward to seeing. Her retro-cute block-print style is so delicious and inspirational.

I asked her what her inspirations are and she answered: I admire many artists. To name a few: Mary Blair, Jim Flora, Richard Scarry, J.P. Miller, Tim Biskup. My favorite Japanese artists include: Shinzi Katoh, Piu Sudo, and Sakura Momoko (creator of Japanese cartoon "Chibi Maruko-Chan"). - I can certainly see all of these influences in her art, but her own personal flair shines through.

Flora is from Taipei, Taiwan and now resides in Kansas City. Besides being an amazing artist she is also a wonderful musician!

Enjoy the delightful art of Flora Chang!
