Crystal Liu started the series with a colour palette inspired by the mother of pearl and pairs it with multiple clusters of opaque greyscale dots that build up and manifest the protagonist: the fog. At times, the fog appears thick, impenetrable and never-ending. Yet at others, it passes through swiftly like an uninvited guest.
The fog both obscures and reveals parts of the landscape where camellia flowers are found floating peacefully on the waters with the shimmering stars huddling together near the mountains and braving the crashing waves. Together with other characters such as birch trees, weeping willows, the stars and the moon, they depict tales of familial love, memory and hope.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your ‘local eyes’—and for that, you need two i’s.
