Illustration Tuesday V3: Kim Minji
This week I am excited to feature the beautiful illustrations by the South Korean illustrator, Kim Minji. I have been a fan of hers for over a decade now and just cannot get enough! When I view her pieces, I literally get lost in them and I escape into the magical world she has created. You can tell that Kim understands the art of storytelling!
All of her illustrations are very detailed, playful, and whimsical. Kim pays great attention to the way she composes the illustrations. By doing so, the pieces have a nice movement and flow. Allowing the audiences' eyes to move around the pieces which enhances the visual story.
I also really appreciate the way she plays with colors. Kim uses colors to further emphasize the composition, to enhance the many small details, and to give her illustrations that light, whimsical feel.
Kim Minji has done many illustrations for books and has also done character designs! Below are a few of my favorite illustrations she had done for classic books.
