Taiwanese Tumblr sensation Jhao-Yu Shih (aka Little Oil ) fuses art direction and design in this brilliant series of illustrations. With a fascination for the natural world, both real and imagined, the talented artist renders mixed media portraits of reality which are colored in rich, tertiary hues and draped in a signature storybook style that exudes as much freshness as it does local tradition. Little Oil favors eastern motifs and bold palettes - a daring combination of colors that might intimidate more conservative artists. Whether it’s a rendition of life on earth or out in space, a sense of awe permeates much of the work here - a beautiful reminder to keep one’s eyes open to the wonders of the world.All images courtesy of Jhao-Yu Shih.
