Karen Chau

Karen based the series on her experiences growing up in a Chinese-American household. The first character of the series that she drew was Kai-Lan at age 5. It was a persona that Karen knew quite well - Kai-Lan is the Chinese name that Karen was given at birth. And “Ni Hao” means “Hello” in Mandarin. See, you’re learning already!

Karen would get in trouble in art class for always drawing giant

pandas & super bears, they wanted her to draw more realistic

...if you put your whole heart into a project, the outcome will be magnificent
