This vibrant artwork by Shan Jiang is used across our packaging and digital assets. Shan has brought to life in a single image the spirit of a young illustrator’s career path. This artwork represents all the possibilities and opportunities to choosing a pathway to becoming a professional illustrator. By using vivid colour and striking illustrations he symbolises the unexpected journey that’s waiting for them.
In an animated film we expand on the themes in Shan’s vibrant image through 6 chapters.
We’ll take the viewer through the highs and lows every young illustrator might face in their career. Every chapter has its own illustration style that becomes more vibrant as the narrative evolves reflecting personal and professional growth.This brings to life the creative platftagline of ‘Make it on Wacom Cintiq” that we have chosen for this product.
Without any further comments, we leave you the 6 chapters and the full video at the end. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
