Xiao Huang The tale of a Whale

I can find little information about the illustrator Xiao Huang and I noticed that the website hasn’t been updated for a few years now, so if anyone knows more then please feel free to pass on the details. There seems to be a small obsession about birds and fish, running through the work, and I like it !

Lovely dreamy landscapes with large cats being stalked by even larger birds !

How cool would it be to have your own bird to fly you home after a hard day at the office ?

I like the soft floaty feel to the illustrations, beautifully hushed and wrapped in summery cotton-woolness : )

Then this looks to be the tale of a little girl who gets a little fish ….

and they do everything together whilst the fish grows …

and grows.. until one day it grows soo big that the girl has to let it go into the sea.

But I’m sure it doesn’t forget her kindness and maybe even visits at night in her dreams.

Fabulous work and ideas. Ahh I feel quite peaceful after looking at this. What says you readers ?

Just a quick reminder that I’ll be showing my work along with about 40+ other designer/makers here this Sunday. Please do pop in and say hello.

    Hi, wondered if you would like to see this fab artists work that I found recently Kate Lycett, you can find her on face book and I don’t think she’s far away from you. Her printed lanterns are particularly lovely.

    Enchanting, ethereal, divine come to mind. Wonderful post on a talented artist!

    dreamy, introspective, sometimes haunting. I love the soft, watery colors and the vibrant colors of the fighting Beta fish. I’ve often thought of how it would be to be a bird. I have had flying dreams of all descriptions since I was a kid.

      Thanks Joy, I also occasionally have flying dreams, but they usually involve being chased by someone and then taking off to escape them, rather than experiencing the joy of flying itself.
