In a world filled with cynical people, it's comforting to know that there's someone like Heng Swee Lim. The Kuala Lampur, Malaysia-based illustrator creates bright and sunny works that will turn anyone's day around. Filled with optimism and hope, they have that child-like innocence to them that's wonderfully refreshing. When we asked Lim why he illustrates this way, he told us this.
