Colors crackling like rabid flames, cleanly-designed characters marching like senpai into the viewer’s eye, ﾏｵｽ’s work has a sharp, at-the-ready feel; poppy, at once high and low, absolutely cool.
“The beauty of the natural world, alongside the humorous and sinister nature of animals are current themes of my work. From scientific depictions of seeds, leaves and animals, to narrative scenes where rats, slugs, or plump-bodied chevrotain take centre stage, my work reflects both an interest in the reality of nature as well as my own imagined narrative scenarios. In the last couple of years, works have included: a written and illustrated children’s picture book, involving a slug called ‘Herb’; illustrations of British pond creatures for an educational pack; book jackets; another children’s picture book based on the text ‘In the Attic’; and paintings based on the sacred rats from the Indian Karni Mata temple.” (via Illustration by Lara Hawthorne)
Hajin Bae (a.k.a. Soulist-Aurora) is a an illustrator, graphic designer and art director, living and working in Seoul, Korea: “My illustrations have two styles: Day and Night. Day’s illustrations are mostly woman’s drawing, sharp and sophisticated. And Night’s illustrations are very quiet, using deep blue and lemon yellow to express the serene scenery of the night.” Please follow Hajin Bae’s Tumblr for more fantastic illustrations!
