The Art of Johnny Ryan

The White Deer

Illustration // Thursday, September 20, 2012
Gorgeous illustrations by a young artist by the name of Peony in Hong Kong. Born in 1990, Peony has just barley begun on her creative journey, but judging from her descipline and talent, we have a feeling she has nothing to worry about. Soft human/animal portraits filled with flora, fauna and emotion.
