Travel Around the World Through Pearada Cheepsatayakorn’s Illustrations

Pearada Cheepsatayakorn describes herself as a “bubbly illustrator.” This bubbliness is very much present throughout her illustrations. Using relaxed, loose pen lines, as well as watercolors, her creations serve as a sort of casual reflection on everyday life, in all its unremarkable beauty.

“I tell stories through my illustrations,” said Cheepsatayakorn in an interview with The Smoke Detector. “I love capturing real-time moments so if I wish I could elongate the moments I want to capture and see every movement in slow motion. I want to see every second in a more detailed way.”

With degrees in both Strategic Communications and Architecture, her illustrated observations include both people and environments. So it makes sense that her main inspiration comes from her travels around the world. “Traveling inspires me,” she said. “First off, it does the heart good! I love to slowly indulge and fully appreciate the atmosphere. I always carry a sketchbook with me to capture the moment I love with my drawing.”

A visual storyteller, the more Cheepsatayakorn sees the world, the more stories she has to share. “Especially when I travel alone, I get to date the city and I get to see it from a different angle,” she reflects. “Every time I change environment, new ideas spark into life.”
