As a child I loved Greek mythology, so of course when this came out I loved it. The stylised Greek influenced character design is very simple but effective in this.

This advert is so whimsical and charming, it’s my most favorite of recent adverts.
I love the looseness of these watercolours or inks. Even though the detail is minimal the picture is still clear.
Audrey Kawasaki’s work always gives me shivers. The girls’ faraway gaze, combined with the soft tones and unusual media make her work seem unearthly and eerie.
Creepy! I love the fluid strokes and the stark contrast between the colour and the black. I wonder what media this was done in?
