Inside 'Daughter' by Aidan Koch
A young girl paints her visions while living on a post-earth human colony. Koch's beautifully painted mini for kuš! is a tantalizingly short look into a bigger idea.
At only 28 pages, Aidan Koch shows the beauty in a stark future. Long after Earth is gone, a young girl still sees visions of flora and fauna from the past. These drawings and portrayals of the visions provide beautiful color in an otherwise stark world. When given an opportunity to explore the unknown, she jumps at the chance. The chance that these visions are not only a dream but that there is more life - more to life - left in this universe.
Koch's ability to grasp and hold your attention is a testament to his beautiful painting. Minimal landscapes dotted with characters hold their own in contrast to pages that contain explosions of beautiful watercolor mastery.
