Alice Lin’s Watercolor Paintings on Rice Paper

strange portrait by alice lin

“These creatures live in my mind,” says Alice Lin an illustrator from Beijing who loves painting unique creatures on rice paper. Her characters seem like they belong on the pages of a 20th century children’s book—an old era vibe that’s visible and likely connected to Lin’s admiration and study of classical poetry and Chinese painting, the latter still actively part of her artistic process as she uses tools and techniques from her heritage.
