Qinni, la ilustradora conocida en las redes sociales como @qinniart, ha fallecido a los 29 años de edad. Qing Han, nacida en Canadá el 20 de marzo de 1990, había conseguido una gran fama y reconocimiento como artista digital, realizando bocetos e ilustrando personajes, lo que le llevó a tener más de 2 millones de seguidores en Instagram.
Qinni sufría graves problemas cardíacos y a los 28 años se sometió a cuatro cirugías a corazón abierto. De hecho, había realizado muchos bocetos inspirados en sus luchas médicas. En diciembre de 2019 anunció que le habían diagnosticado una esperanza de vida de entre un año y año y medio.
Got diagnosis today. Cancer, Stage 4, doc says I got about a year or year and a half left.

Empty ⭕️ • • • So I took a break from social media for about a month. This really just was a doodle for myself and I wasn't even going to post it, but you know how sometimes messy doodles just kinda solidify… Well, anyways, stress got the better of me and I pretty much had to shut down and do something else for a bit. And by something else I mean nothing of significance at all lol. I wish things had gotten better, but it hasn't…my mom's white blood cell count actually LOWERED, and she still insists on working -__-;;. My granddad's tumour has…migrated… I'll need to go back to China soon to see him. My mom's preparing me for the worst and it's kinda all just happening at once? The doctors here are thinking of sending me to the Mayo clinic in the US because my heart disease is so unusual, and the scar is STILL growing according to the CT reports…And US medical fees are so much I dunno if I'd wanna go or just die and save some money for my aging parents 😂😂 Anyways, I'm not sure how "back" I am, but I'm trying to get back to art and maybe draw my stress out haha…but tbh it felt better gaming and not thinking about anything. Haha, sorry, I feel like every time I post online it's always so negative. I wish I was more positive these days~ Well, I'm more positive when I'm gaming and cooking? Lmaooo~~ I'm gonna go water my plants. Thanks for dropping by and sticking w me 🙂 💕
Qinni también ha trabajado como pintora de fondos para una compañía de animación canadiense. Su familia desaprobaba el arte, por lo que no se le permitía dibujar en casa. Su fallecimiento ha provocado una reacción de tristeza en las redes sociales, convirtiéndose rápidamente en trending toppic a nivel mundial.
Aquí puedes ver alguno de sus trabajos, de los que también subía vídeos en su canal de Youtube.

[Birdcage] • • I'm back~! Sorta~ hopefully~ loll I kinda put stuff up on my patreon now :3~ link in my profile 👆👆🙏 mostly just sketches and wip tho, just one tier, $1+ xD~ I decided to set it up when my medications jumped to $400/month o( ❛ᴗ❛ )o;;;; • Sorry I've been away for so long without any update..I've kinda got some anxiety about not being able to draw as much as before and it was easier to just not thinking about the social media aspect of it all. ———— A lil update on my health: Got discharged from the hospital last week and tried to finish this asap. Went in for abdominal pain but my heart was beating so fast in intervals they kept me in the cardiac ICU for close watch cause apparently it was really dangerous for a bit xD;; They also found a lump mass in my body and they're not sure if it's cancer or not. The pathologist team at the hospital can't agree on whether it's sarcoma cancer or a benign tumour I guess? So, that's been fun lol. It's weird how my body is like, really trying to kill itself 😂😂 BC Cancer was supposed to contact me last week but they're not very fast at contacting people I guess? XD — Fingers crossed its not cancer cause my heart is still a mess and I've no idea how chemotherapy would mesh with my heart medications. I take soooo much heart meds now sometimes I worry for my liver and kidney lol, I hope they can take the meds xD~ I wish I had better news tho lol. I'm kinda still in medical limbo….it's like I've stopped in time to work on surviving and watching everything passing me by…kinda depressing sometimes haha…sorry uwu. But still alive tho. That's a plus. Lmao. ———- TL;DR: my health is kinda getting worse but I'm still alive tho yaaay • Thanks to those of you who are still sticking around xD💕💕 • • • • • #illustration #surreal #pencil #drawing #instaartist
