Illustrator / Hye Jin Chung

Hye Jin Chung Illustrator

Hye Jin Chung is a New York based, Koren illustrator with work featuring in The Oprah Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Chronicle Books, NYtime and so much more. I recently stumbled upon Hye Jin’s illustrations over at the Vegetarian Times Facebook page. They posted an article answering if the sugar in fruit made you gain weight (well, no) and used the image above to accompany the article – perfect, don’t you think?

I visited Hye Jin’s website and was taken back by her beautiful mixed media creations. You can follow Hye Jin on Instagram here and buy some goodness over at Society6.

Watercolour Inspiration

I’ve been having a bit of fun painting watercolours over the last few weeks. There is a lot of inspiration and techniques to be found online and I’ve found a few really inspiring pieces. Even though I’m no where as talented as these artists, it’s been really relaxing and satisfying to work with watercolours and would love to spend more time working with the medium and perfecting my skills.

Here are some of the pieces that I’ve been inspired by.

I love the vibrant yet natural look of these pieces by Oana Befort.

Here is a little something of what I’ve been painting. I found a vintage book of birds and have scavenged for some Australian natives which I’ve been using for inspiration.Bird watercolour | a tactile life blog
