Very beautiful and ethereal work from 22 year old student, Yaphleen, also know as Yaya. Her deviantArt and tumblr house her gorgeous Studio Ghibli inspired illustrations. Each one explores a different style and technique, but each is executed proficiently.
Yaphleen explicitly states that these drawings were created in her free time and for her pleasure. She does not wish to sell prints, or take on any commissions at this time. It’s art for art’s sake and rather refreshing to see nowadays.
