'Haiiro' by SIT

Illustration // Thursday, November 15, 2012
After years of working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Amsterdam-based SIT decided to leave commercial work behind and get back to his artistic roots. In his monochrome series 'Haiiro,' he investigates the narrative possibility of the slow burn.

Illustration // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
