Though Peony Yip doesn’t consider herself to be a professional designer, artist or photographer, she makes a strong argument against that statement by continuously churning out amazing illustrations and images.

For instance, in this series entitled ‘Astronaut Girls,’ Yip renders a collection of youthful Caucasian women suited up in space exploration gear. The ladies are drawn beautifully and would probably make more sense on the covers of fashion magazines rather than being on NASA missions. After all, when was the last time you spotted an astronaut wearing lipstick while in space? Her use of runny watercolors and pinkish hues also give these amazing images a surreal quality.

Peony Yip currently resides in Fanling, Hong Kong, where she continues to produce stunning visuals that she’s passionate about.
