Digital Illustrations

A set of some illustrations I have done, playing around a common theme of Children & Monsters. I have always been fascinated by the concept of an imaginary world and its infinite creatures. The idea was to show how children and their imagination takes them to places which we as adults can only dream of revisiting. The monsters resemble our fears and at the same time act as answers to our questions. It’s a stereotype to consider a creature dangerous. But are they really? In the darkness, our instincts and our fears help us save ourselves. Our egos don’t. Hence the scale of the monster in relation to the child represents that concept. Our innermost emotions are much larger than life and that they’ll always be there to help us out. These illustrations revolve around such ideas and show playfully what I would often dream of as a child.
