look at these fantastic illustrations from brooklyn artist dan-ah kim. these lavishly colored pieces are filled with stories that are distantly familiar, those whose details are fuzzy. i get this strange feeling of wonder (and maybe a little dÃ©jÃ vu) from them — it reaches through and pulls me in to keep me thinking and staring. urban, childhood and earthy narratives abound, so there’s something for everyone here. and it’s all so well done.
dan-ah’s hopes of becoming a ninja never came to fruition, so she became an artist instead. i think i can speak for all of us when i say i’m so glad it didn’t pan out. although it would be great if she did both…
see more fabulosity on dan-ah’s website, see what she has to say on her blog and purchase these pieces at her etsy shop. be sure check out her contribution to the year of the rat show at the giant robot 2 outpost in los angeles, now through april 16th, 2008.
