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.
