The Mystic Alphabets by Ise Ananphada
The Mystic Alphabets by Ise Ananphada is a series of illustrations inspired by a love story from a Thai magazine, called 'Dichan Magazine'. Dichan Magazine is a local magazine about lifestyle, gossip, beauty and fashion. See Ise's stunning illustrations below.
The Mystic Alphabets is a series of illustration inspired by a love story from "Dichan Magazine", a magazine in Thailand. I drew the Alphabet series around 2013 and started my latest project in 2014 (as you can see on my Behance, the Fantasize and the Paradox).
When I do a project for a long period of time, I always find some spectacular topic to be used as a theme. The alphabet came up when I have read a love story in an article in those magazine. I interpreted each article. Like, there's an article about unfaithfulness, then I choose "A" meaning for "Affair" that is somehow related to the topic.
I don't have a specific inspiration for this project aside from the article in the magazine but, people have told me that it reminded them of Mucha's work. I wasn't expecting it, but, it is a great compliment ;)
I think an important key to success is being active. Active for: working, finding an inspiration, your passion, your desire and most especially 'to keep walking'. Everything is possible.
