Wednesday Whim - "Red" Hong Yi
With all things Chinese New Year right now, I couldn't help but write about "Red" Hong Yi and her creative Chinese-themed illustrations. Red (her nickname) is a Malaysian artist/architect who cleverly uses lipstick, mascara, false eyelashes, pencil shavings, etc. to produce unexpected and unconventional drawings. She first experimented with makeup as her tool of choice in August but, Red has never been the one to use typical tools to create her designs - she previously used flower petals, a basketball and even rings of coffee stains. Red plans to reveal 15 drawings during the 15-day Chinese New Year celebration through her Instagram account. I'll definitely stay tuned to see more from her!
