GK: “I created these illustrations with the thought of my grandparents. When I was younger, I would spend every summer with them. Their house was located by a forest where I would often observe birds during the day, and watch foxes play in the evenings.
With every illustration I create, I try to depict the beauty of nature and everything that surrounds us. I get inspired by wild animal and nature photography because I think it’s important to bring even more attention to the world around us and make more people aware of how beautiful nature is. I hope that when people look at my illustrations they remember that it is up to us to keep the planet and these animals alive. I always pay attention to the smallest details and aim to create colour palettes that are challenging the normal way we view things, which I think is what makes my work more unique.”
