Illustrator and Graphic Designer Shian‘s work is influenced by a myriad of artists, writers and filmmakers including Akira Kurosawa, Jean Giraud, Katsushika Hokusai, Mike Mignola and Carl Sagan. The portfolio of this New-York based creative is full to the brim with illustrations depicting her fascination with the universe and the environment.
“My work was once awarded a rather back-handed compliment of being ’fastidious’. Upon reflection, I have since accepted this to be succinct and accurate.”
