Painted traditionally with watercolour. Crystal Dream. Based on a dream I had, where crystals were growing out of my body. I wanted to capture the disturbing elements of it. Rainbow Tears. Drawn drawing a bout of insomnia, painted in watercolour. “Let’s stop killing each other and explore space” – Drawn out of frustration with humanity. What can I say, I want to explore things. World Hug. Originally a concept for a new logo design, ended up turning into a print instead. I wanted to draw something giving the world a big hug, as I hope to achieve that with my art (making people feel loved). It didn’t work out as a logo but I love the illustration.
