llustrations for Penguin Calendar 2020

  • Jiazhen Cai

In the collaboration with Penguin Random House (Beijing) for Penguin Calendar 2020, I was responsible for the illustrations of September. The works extend the iconic design of Penguin, reinterpret the classic literature, and interpret the essential solar terms and festivals. The creation incorporates personal ideas, i.e., the analysis of the relationships between characters, the combination of light and shadow, and the use of Rene Magritte's painting feature. Jiazhen 2019
