Floating World Comics is proud to publish Object 5, the first monograph of illustration and graphic design work by Swedish artist, Kilian Eng. The book features over 60 full color pieces created over the last three years. The book will debut at Floating World Comics on Thursday December 1st and at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest on December 3rd. The book is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. We’ll have ordering information online soon.
Kilian’s images present alternate worlds where the environment plays a great role. Many of these sequences present visual stories, without any text. This is connected to his growing interest in theatrical mise-en-scène and set design for film. He is fascinated with the details that can create these imaginative worlds; colors and lighting, dimensions and sounds. His inspiration comes from classic and futuristic architecture, surrealism, science fiction, as well as the different elements and shapes in natural and urban landscapes.
Special thanks to Infinity Night and Radio Cosmos Records for providing music used in the trailer.

Kilian Eng AKA DW Design was born 1982 in Stockholm Sweden where he still lives and works. In 2010 Kilian Eng graduated from Konstfack, University of Arts Craft & Design in Stockholm from the master group in storytelling, graphic design & Illustration.
A couple of years ago Kilian discovered the possibilities of working in a digital way with illustration. Without losing respect for the powers of pen and paper Kilian started to investigate this new medium. The computer proved to be the perfect tool and gave exactly the kind of workflow he was looking for.
Today Kilian is working digitally with almost every visual project making illustrations rich in color and full of environment. In recent years he has also started to work with animation for telling stories.
