Xin Shan




Name: Xin Shan
Position: Online Art Editor
Graduation Year: 2009
Xin is Miss Anime, class of 2009. Xin looks Japanese (and speaks Japanese), though she is actually 100% Chinese. She loves to draw, especially still life and anime, but fails at choosing color combinations and thinking of cool backgrounds. This will be the last time you hear her talk about anime, because if not, Julie will fail her. She will strive to make graphics that will remain in your hearts, forever!!
