According to Christopher McCandless, happiness is only real when shared, but LA-based artist Yaoyao Ma Van As disagrees. To highlight this, she has created a colorful illustration series that celebrates the intimacy of living alone.

Yaoyao’s images stand out from the rest for possessing harmonious color palettes and carefully crafted compositions. And it shouldn’t come as a surprise, because Yaoyao has been working on some of the biggest animation shows in the industry. “My professional experience includes Rick and Morty (Adult Swim), Future Worm (Disney) and BoJack Horseman (Netflix),” Yaoyao writes on her website.
