An­nisa pur­sued her love of il­lus­tra­tion by mov­ing from Tai­wan to the US so she could im­merse her­self in an en­vi­ron­ment that nur­tured her love of con­cept art. Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from her sur­round­ings, the stu­dents and pro­fes­sion­als who An­nisa stud­ied along­side spurned on her cre­ativ­ity and mo­ti­va­tion.

“Usu­ally I take in­spi­ra­tion from games and comics, es­pe­cially fan­tasy – which is the genre I ab­sorb the most of, through read­ing and play,” An­nisa says. Her work demon­strates her love of sto­ry­telling and imag­in­ing fan­tas­ti­cal worlds, cre­at­ing new and won­der­ful char­ac­ters through the medium of il­lus­tra­tion.

1 THE FOUN­TAIN “I tried sev­eral com­po­si­tion­sco be­fore fi­nally de­cid­ing to adopt an up­per-an­gle view for this il­lus­tra­tion. The wa­ter from the foun­tain means life to her and her fam­ily, and I think this an­gle tells a bet­ter story. I fo­cused on the char­ac­ter to make her the fo­cal point of the piece.”

2 BREAK OFF “This is an im­age for a per­sonal pro­ject. I pre­fer to fi­nalise the com­po­si­tion early in the cre­ative process so I don’t need to worry about it later on. For this paint­ing I fo­cused on the crea­ture and then worked on the back­ground to sup­port it.”
