Rebecca Green Illustration:

Figurative but unrealistic; heartwarming yet melancholic, child-like and grown up: these seemingly contrasting ideas embody the illustrations of Rebecca Green.

She tackles themes of childhood, death, and the vast universe in which we exist, breaking them into recognizable moments.
