Clever illustrations of animals turned into aquariums and terrariums by Wenqing Yan

Chinese artist Wenqing Yan, a.k.a. Yuumei, let her imagination run wild to create fantastic illustrations of surreal animals that are aquariums and terrariums at the same time.

I grew up in China where parents compete and show off their child like some sort of hobby, so drawing was one of the many things I had to learn. I really loved it so I took more classes but not too much. All my Chinese art classes focused on realism and drawing from life. That gave me the foundations to draw everything else but drawing is not a magical process where you take a class, and BAM! you’re an artist. It’s all about hard work and practice like everything else in life.
