On my way


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This is my first time to travel alone to Japan. I went to a contemporary art festival name "Setouchi Triennale" on several islands in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan and the coastal cities of Takamatsu and Tamano. When I looked at the sea and sky there I feel thankful I am able to walk, see and explore this beautiful world. Therefore I hope to share my happiness with people through my illustrations.

How was the illustration used:
I spent 8 days in Japan that taught me how to deal with myself, and enjoy the present. I didn't talk much with others during the trip, but I got a lot of inspiration from the people I met and those beautiful islands. I believed that art has the power to educate and motivate us to become better people, also to heal ourselves. So I would like to spread the love and message that I have learned.

How did you make this work:
The digital world feels like an exit for us to escape from reality, and I love digital drawing because it won't make me stress, I dare to create since it's super easy to restart with the delete button. My life is not perfect but my line in Adobe Illustrator does. I create my illustrations with this software as always.
