Creative. Passionate. Focused.
A balanced design of understanding and growth.

I am an artist & model consulting with various artists, photographers, & writers creating visual products/designs for companies like Harvest House, Hallmark, & Target. Additionally, I have 6+ years experience with professional photography studios providing all of the personal design needs & digital retouching of their high-end clients.

Currently, I am employed with The University of Texas as a Digital Artist designing visual media for the Department of Recreational Sports. Also, as a side project, I am consulting with Double Dot Studios as an Art Director/Environment Designer.

My favored artistic medium is Adobe Photoshop. However, I am flexible & intuitive with technology & design so, naturally, I have worked with many programs & mediums.

Holistically, I am, simply, an Artist.
My purpose is not to ‘break the mold’, but rather,
to create a new one.
I see my body, in whatever form, as a tool for expressing my soul. It is both a canvas & a paintbrush as I am both an artist & a work of art.

An Interview with Yihyoung Li

1. Briefly describe painting & illustration as if I knew nothing about the art form.

Painting is drawing with paint.  
Drawing is a visual representation of feelings and ideas. 
Illustration is 
drawing a story.

2.  What are the top 3 lessons you would suggest for new creative minds?

Lesson 1
Do not shelf a great idea for an arbitrary future time when you’ve improved.  Take it & make it a reality; you can always revisit it.

Lesson 2
If you see something wrong with your drawing, fix it.  It will become more difficult to resolve if you avoid it.

Lesson 3
Make connections with other artists, share your work with them, and receive their input.


Designing your 'glamorous' self is an important part of design philosophy & lifestyle.

By identifying & idealizing yourself, you are creatively character building, confidence boosting, & self-branding!

What do I mean by 'glamour'?
Let's start with the definition:


What makes YOU attractive, exciting, appealing, & special?

Typically, the whatever makes you stand out, also makes your art & designs stand out.

But identifying & exemplifying glamour in everyday life is easier said than done.


What is considered 'design'?
What genres do the elements & principles of design relate to?
Many would say:
Photography, Fine Art, Fashion, etc.

However, does design have 
to be visual?
Sound design isn't.

Many kinds of design use 
all of the senses:
Culinary Arts.
The Earth.

Is design always conceivable?
What about the design of thought?
Or the design of the universe?

Design's essence goes 
deeper than genres.

Design is living.


The Define-Design Philosophy

Explore. Create. Diversify. 
For creatives that embrace freedom of design.

Simply, Define-Design embraces the 'essence' of design.

What is an 'essence'?

What is design's 'essence'?
