Dennis Juan Ma was born in China but moved to Auckland, New Zealand eight years ago where he studied graphic design. Now he works as a freelance illustrator. "I like to collect interesting bits and pieces from daily life and put them into my work. Any funny conversation or jokes or silly ideas all can be my material. I'm a fan of historical fashion, especially during 1940-1950. I really love that period and think the art at that time was really cool."
