Maiji/Mary Huang is a happy little squirrel and also a Taiwanese-Canadian artist and writer based out of Toronto. Her work incorporates themes of Eastern philosophy and mythology and everyday human experiences.
The maiji is a squirrel-like creature I started drawing back in elementary school. She’s long since turned into a convenient mascot or alter ego and a long-running in-joke amongst friends, popping up in various projects. Maijis are a base from which I can draw all sorts of silly things!
