  • Pei-Hsin Cho is an illustrator and animator. Her work is narrative based and revolves around obscure sorrows concerning image-making as a therapeutic tool for intentional mental health care. She uses both hand drawing and digital painting to depict a variety of inward emotions and attempts to transcribe subtle feelings into tangible and visually tactile images.
