sci-fi illustrations by kilian eng

I recently came across the work of Kilian Eng, an illustrator based in Stockholm. His striking illustrations combine 80s cartoon style, classic science fiction imagery, and fantastical anime worlds (Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away comes to mind).

Eng’s work is vibrantly and exuberantly retro-futuristic, but it goes beyond nostalgia. For images so stylistically evocative of the day-glo, video game arcade world of the 80s, they feel surprisingly contemplative. I can’t wait to see more of Eng’s haunting and whimsical work. Some highlights from his portfolio:
