Korean Artist Illustrates The Happiness Of Living Alone With A Dog

Living a busy social life and rushing to be seen and accepted by others can be exhausting as we tend to forget the simple and fulfilling joy of solitude. One Korean artist found inspiration in living alone with one important life companion, her dog. Aeppol illustrates what it’s like to live alone with this special friend in a series of beautiful, whimsical illustrations what convey tranquility. Her work celebrates the innocence of youth, the beauty of nature and the happiness that can be found simply by being alone.

“I feel special from very tiny things –  fairy tales that I loved when I was young, some dream stories, tiny wildflowers, and white clouds in the blue sky,” Aeppol told BoredPanda. “And these are a huge part of my drawings.”

Aeppol’s Forest Girl character represents the dream of many of us who want to get away from everything and everyone only to reconnect with nature.

“If we live busy in the city, we may lose many of the moments we can spend in nature,” she explained. “Especially in Korea, which is famous for ‘Quick and Quick’. But I think that’s why the time in nature is more valuable. I think communicating with nature is really important to me and to my work.”
