If you want to become an illustrator, you must find a way.
Sorry, because I am a South Korean. I can’t speak English fluently. But I want to tell my story.
In 2003, I was twenty-five years old.Back then I wanted to be an illustrator.But then I didn’t know how to become one.
Then there was an art market at the playground near Hongik University of Korea.That art market was called ‘Free Market’.
I went to the Free Market and I sold my products.I was one of the popular artists. I got noticed.
Then one day, I was introduced to the famous fashion magazine ‘Seventeen’ Korea.I’ve been commissioned to illustrate for that magazine.It was how I became an illustrator in South Korea.
I wanted to say:If you want to become an illustrator, you must find a way.If you do not show your works, no one will see your possibilities. - Hajin Bae

What I admire of the works of Shanghai-based illustrator Shan Jiang is his use of limited (sometimes monochromatic) color palettes to express mood and how the thickness of his lines support the story he tells in his illustrations with a subplot of their own. I highly recommend viewing his website for a diverse body of work. His colors are just amazing, whether it be in works such as the above or his more eye-catching illustrations.
