Cao Nan’s illustration style varies from project to project, some are complex works with refined line strokes while others capture a more childlike cartoon style.
all of her work shares one thing in common: they are rooted in imagination and fantasy, offering dreamlike images to viewers. This unique touch was inspired by her love of fairy tales...
