Creatures Feature 28 - Header Image

This month, as the Content Creatures team worked through another month of the lockdown, they have been inspired in many ways. This month’s selection of work reflects style, form, character and landscape. We see moments of serenity, a charming how-to, an alternative perspective on the outside world and art made from materials to hand – in this case, flour and yeast.

Enchanting Environments

Yun Ling // Concept artist

Yun Ling is a concept artist and illustrator based in Montreal, Canada. We loved Yun’s work on Into The Spider-Verse, but this post is an appreciation of her real-world digital paintings. Yun makes everyday places look beautiful and cinematic with a mix of graphic marks and texture. We love the layering of colour and dynamic brushstrokes.
