Honored to be partnered with Adobe as one of the Adobe influencers across APAC to create a piece of unique artwork to celebrate 2019 Chinese New Year / Lunar New Year. In 2019, it is the year of the pig, notably the Earth Pig 己亥 (jǐhài), which begins on 5 th February.
The campaign ‘Well Wishes for Creatives’ aims to drive awareness and engagement through interactive features that run and last up to 15 days, distributed through influencers and Adobe owned channels across the region.
Being a Photoshop and Illustrator user for 10+ years I wanted to create an artwork in my own style and techniques that I’m most familiar with. Chinese New year is about reunion, celebration and traditions. The illustration draws inspiration from traditional Chinese architecture and uses red as accent colour to give a prosperous vibe. Chinese firecracker is one of the most important element in Lunar New Year and I came up with the idea of blending it with the background seamlessly in a surreal way. The artwork is completed by adding some good amount of unique textures. The result is a mixture of minimalism with rich textures, surrealism and traditions. Finally, it is turned into an animated Gif for some fireworks show!
