Dusty Fever


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I created this series of work, Dusty Fever, to visualise a transition through trauma and what is left afterwards. It is an exploration of how anxiety build up and adapt into our life. I have challenged myself to use limited amount of colour palette (mainly black and white with a hint of pink and blue) to focus on the composition and relationship between each objects and space.

How was the illustration used:
These work were created as my personal portfolio piece and have also served as a form of art therapy. I have had them shown and sold prints in multiple illustration fairs, most recently at the London illustration fair, Seoul design festival, and Seoul illustration fair 2019.

How did you make this work:
I chose to use Adobe illustrator to create Dusty Fever because I liked how malleable vector is without losing the data. It seemed fitting with the idea of how the wound of a trauma may heal and fade away over the stretched course of time but the very impact will never be gone. I also took and distorted places I have been to and filled them with new objects that may or may not belong there.
