Why did you make this work:
This is my thesis work and I hoped I can manage large picture better through this project. Since I am a bird lover, I created many cute bird characters that can show up in different places of the picture, it would be really interesting if you can search all over the illustration and find out where they are.

How was the illustration used:
A children's book or accordion book.

How did you make this work:
By Adobe photoshop and procreate.

Hi, I’m Jialei, a bird lover and a second year ILP student. I enjoy making humorous and colorful illustrations, and now I’m trying to make my works cuter and funnier. Hope you can get a little bit of joy when looking at my works.Currently I’m working on a long accordion book about how residents in Bird Town spend their day. There are some characters show up in different places, you can challenge yourself to find them all in the thesis show and see what they’re up to in the picture.See more of my Illustrations and gifs in https://jialeisun.website/
