Balance X Chaos


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
The inspiration for this project comes from people's actual experiences, the confession of a bipolar disorder patient. People with bipolar disorder have two uncontrollable extreme emotional states. For most bipolar patients, balance is a topic that we have to carry out, and it is also a topic that we can't keep away from when we explore our inner world.

How was the illustration used:
This work is use for the advertising, magzine, picture books and comics etc.

How did you make this work:
Firstly, I started to focus on myself when I was ill, and I learned how to recover and rebuild myself. I found a Bipolar Disorder group, and we discussed and exchanged the disease and support each other. Then I started to illustrate and express the feeling of being a bipolar disorder patient. For the final outcome, the materials I used were watercolor and digital software.
