Illustration by Matthew Lim

Thoughts behind the piece:

This illustration drew inspiration from Studio Ghibli films and my daily dog walks around dusk where the skyline and clouds at this time were beautiful and almost surreal. I really enjoyed illustrating the clouds and playing around with texture through only using line-work as well as contrasting perspectives for different subjects. I’m happy with the colour scheme chosen as I think it shows similar characteristics to Ukiyo-e Woodblock paintings and adds to the surrealism of the piece.
