Inception of a.jin – the story of dreams

How do you think about dreaming? Is it just a kind of unrealistic thinking that wastes time? We always have an obsession with dreams, and we do believe that dreaming is a necessity, helping us to find a way out from the stressful daily life. That’s why we created a.jin, a girl who helps us to get released from stress, and illustrates our dreams in reality.

a.jin是一個關於夢的插畫系列,把我們的夢和夢想描繪出來。a.jin的世界是充滿色彩的,但有時卻又會帶有一點點迷幻和黑暗的風格,這種矛盾如同成年之後的我們,即使已經不再是小孩子了,但在成熟表面的背後,卻總會記掛著那一點點不曾忘懷的童心。透過a.jin,我們希望能令一些幻想或是在現實中不曾存在的景像,都可以用插畫的意境來表逹出其無限的可能性,並帶出堅持夢想的信念。

a.jin的插畫創作主要以手繪為源點,會混合墨水、水彩、粉彩、碳筆、木顏色等等不同的顏料,留手繪畫的原始感和豐富的層次感,然後再配合電腦繪畫,把a.jin的世界更豐富地呈現在大家面前。
