Lingyun has tried to learn 3D software, but has discovered that she prefers 2D hand-drawing, so most of her works are 2D hand-drawn works. As a 2D animator, Lingyun feels that animation should be fun and light-hearted, so she likes to express the themes reflected in her animation in interesting comedy. During her studies at the Royal College of Art, she continues to experiment with different materials and explore different drawing styles, and found a style she liked.

Lingyun likes to observe life and record the little things in life, which are the source of inspiration for her work.

You Wish!

You Wish! is a narrative comedy animation that is about the concept of money and greed.

It is mainly about the main character who invades an island of birds, which draws revenge from them, and thus goes in search of a non-existent treasure, and is eventually punished. 

The film is trying to say: Is money a problem?  Money is not, greed is the problem. In a way, money is often used as an excuse for people to be greedy. In fact, we should not blame money and should look inward.
