ARTIST COLLABORATION - Guardian Spirits Collection
Inspired by Chinese and Japanese folklore, a guardian spirit is a mysterious entity that haunts humans and influences their character and behaviour. Jen created all the images from original words of description. Instead of using traditional watercolour and ink, she mixed acrylic with gouache and finished with colour pencils to add highlights to Eastern freehand. 

Jen Xu is an artist/illustrator based in Shanghai. 

Qióng Qí is originally from the Chinese book “Records of the Historian”. It is often described as an evil monster since it attacks humans and feeds on their flesh. But it is also believed that Qióng Qí wards off pandemics and poisons. He is persuasive, with the powerful ability to befog people’s minds.
