Shin Morae translates her memories into pastel illustrations
“My drawings are like monologues,” says Seoul-based illustrator Shin Morae. “I draw to remember something or someone very important to me – they are memories. My work is very nostalgic.” As well as subject matter, this sense of nostalgia has worked its way into Shin’s aesthetic, which is inspired by 90s anime, in particular the colour palettes. Throughout her portfolio, the illustrator has created a world full of sugary sweet pastel hues tied together by fine linework and smooth gradients.
