In a world filled with cynical people, it's comforting to know that there's someone like Heng Swee Lim. The Kuala Lampur, Malaysia-based illustrator creates bright and sunny works that will turn anyone's day around. Filled with optimism and hope, they have that child-like innocence to them that's wonderfully refreshing.

When we asked Lim why he illustrates this way, he told us this. "We live in a world full of depression. I hope my drawings can make you feel easy, free, happy and hopeful. More than anything, I hope it makes people smile, straight from their heart."
