Celebrating Lunar New Year with my family in Vietnam has almost become a yearly tradition and is a very significant event that I hold close to my heart. In Feast of the First Morning of the First Day I present a version of my world and how my culture celebrates this holiday. With graphic design as my prime medium, I have represented my most vivid memories of journeys in Vietnam over the years. I have turned the celebration of Lunar New Year in my motherland into an artform that I can present to an audience.
