Suitcase is an illustration that narrates my experience of coming to the United States from China. The book shows my emotional and identical journey through the objects I have lost and obtained along the way. The online version of the illustration book exists as a digital zine that has a traditional illustration book reading experience. While the physical version of Suitcase will involve game-playing elements such as put away illustration cards with certain objects, which intends to engage the audience further.
