Yellow Panda is motion designer and illustrator with a name inspired by the warmth and happiness of the colour yellow and his own character that of which he compares to a Panda. This creative on the move tells us a little more about his work and what inspires him as an artist.

“I usually use two different mediums, Pencil on paper, which I transfer to create the digital format of  it and digital formats such as digital illustrations, video and animation. Its an intricate process that I enjoy.

My style is mostly inspired by VHS effects, Japanese culture and writing, Bright colours and The 80s, it helped me blend a unique aesthetic.

To those who are still young in the design world like myself. Never be afraid to explore and learn new things. Find your style if you haven’t yet and do what you love every day.”

Dance.

IMG_6116

Two step with me,

Wave your hips for me,

Throw your hands in the air,

Careful, don’t trip on your shoelace.

 

Look out! Don’t hit the wall.

Aaah! You just stepped on my foot!

Stop! Sigh!  We really should stop hugging the floor now.

Okay, let’s try this again.

Get up.

Ready?

 

And that my darling,

Will forever be the dance of life.

My blue band angel.

IMG_6054.jpg

I wish I could see you again,

Tell you it gets better.

I wish I could hug you,

And remind you that it’s okay.

 

I do not know how far you have come,

Are you hanging in there?

I do not know if you are fitting well with society again,

Are you still as strong?

I pray for you.

 

I wear the band you made for me,

The blue sky of our former dark days.

I wear the band as my beacon of hope,

A reminder of how far I have come.

I wear the band as my silent prayer for you.

 

Thirteen with the world crushing you.

Twenty one with renewed strength.

Thirteen with a bright future.

Twenty one, broken.

Together, banded forever;

By reality and hope.

Yours in spirit,

The girl who wears the blue arm band.
