illustration of After reading an article about Thailand’s bizarre Luk Thep doll culture I felt compelled to create this illustration. Luk Thep or ‘Child’s Angels’ is a curious doll culture. If you want good fortune for your business or family, the owners believe if they take care of their doll, luck will come to them. The culture reached viral status when Thai Smile Airways allowed passengers to purchase seats and meals for their realistic dolls.

Profile

I like to couple simple colour palettes with unusual perspectives. Light and shadows are fascinating to me and I try to incorporate them into my illustrations where possible – I love the depth and interest they can add to a piece.
