PAINTING,  DRAWING & CHARACTER DESIGN

When I am out in nature, I can't help but to see mythical creatures lurking around every corner. In this series, I used Adobe Photoshop to paint on top of photographs taken by Lili Hamada.

I just discovered an amazing fact! White Terns do not build nests, but rather lay their eggs directly on a tree branch. You can imagine that this leads to all sorts of unfortunate Humpty Dumpty type incidents. But if this doesn't provide inspo for a children's book, I don't know what does. Stay tuned...
