Liao is best known for his illustrated books for adults. As a leukemia survivor, Liao devoted his philosophy in the book with simple messages and whimsical images.

「透過情感創作,幾米創造出的想像世界引領著讀者去思考人生和愛。」文化部在新聞稿上寫道。

“Liao leads readers to think about life and love by exploring the imaginary of the world he created with evocative illustrations,” the Ministry of Culture wrote.
