Hi ~

I am Julius Li Zong-Jhan, engaged in moving image narrative. I melt and mould singular selves into multiple authenticities, creating realities that compete with the monolithic reality.

Transforming to an attentive listener when working on digital design, I craft branding graphics that amplify the resonance between the clients' voice and their products/ services.

Nantian Fude God (南天福德正神) is a regional Earth God served in Donglin Fude Temple (東林福德廟), a venerable temple located in Linyuan, southern Taiwan. Assisted by two celestial officials, the aristocracy-dressed Fude God has been assigned by Heaven's authority to guard His area of jurisdiction since the mid-18th century. He became notable after guiding the locals to break the Scissors Curse that was set in Linyuan by a vengeful Taoism master. 

This design work is dedicated to the Temple managers and the Fude God, as a return of the grant they kindly offered in 2018 for the production of my CG animation,《剪刀穴》(The Pivot Point ).
