Occupation Nation: Illustrator James Yang

After finishing his degree in arts and design at Virginia Commonwealth University, James Yang decided to draw out his own life- literally- and became a full time illustrator.

His career choice turned out to be a masterpiece- Yang was one of the first Asian Americans in his industry, and has received over 250 awards for his design and illustrations. His work has been featured in the Washington Post, American Illustration, and ESPN magazine, along with a collection of children’s books.

In this episode of “Occupation Nation”, we went to James’ studio/home in Brooklyn. After a nice talk with him, we viewed his amazing creative process!

Show description:
"Occupation Nation", a special program featuring Asian Americans working in all aspects of society - literally every occupation.

We think that Asian Americans contribute to society in so many different ways and their stories deserve to be heard by our audience.
