Boundless by yuumei Boundless by yuumei


From the depth of the ocean
To the limitless sky
Open a book, open your mind
This world is boundless
So let your imagination fly

-----

Happy almost Thanksgiving, everyone!

I grew up in a small apartment in China and was raised by my grandparents. When I'm not studying or doing homework, I would go into the office/storage room where all the books are kept and flip through all the books about animals. The photos and illustrations of all the different species always fascinated me and inspired me to learn, understand, and draw the world around me. It gave me a glimpse beyond the rundown apartments and the grey skies of China that I grew up in. Even though the storage room was no bigger than a bathroom, with those books, the walls opened up and the world became boundless.

This drawing has been the background of my phone since like 2015 (2 phones ago lol) and never got to comment.

I love it! this is a surreal and amazing take on what imagination can take you when you get in depth thought.

I would have given anything to have a room like that in my house. Man, those were the days, where I could pick up my Lord of the Rings books, and there I was, standing on the walls of Minas Tirith as I watched Rohan horsemen charge the Orc army below on the Pelennor Fields. 

Ah~. The places books can take you! An excellent piece, from the waves of the ocean to the stars in the sky, and the girl's expression of wonder all combine to create a beautiful tapestry honoring the spirit of human imagination and the magic of words.

Beautiful! And words cannot express how much I can relate to this. Books have always been my refuge from reality. A way to escape the world I'm in and travel somewhere new for a little while.
