Illustrator Lin Jia-dong Showcases Kaohsiung's Rural Towns

 Kaohsiung City Government's new 2023 calendar is one of illustrator Lin Jia-dong's most recent works. He was born and raised in Meinong. The calendar showcases Kaohsiung's picturesque attractions. Its central focus is a gentleman and lady sitting together enjoying a meal, with a backdrop of numerous billboards advertising regional gourmet restaurants and food specialties. Crowds also mingle in the background as they go about their daily lives. It is a captivating calendar.

 Jia-dong leads visitors around Kaohsiung's towns through his illustrations, which showcase Kaohsiung's picturesque attractions. Cishan, Meinong, Liouguei, and Cieding Wetland Park are four of his favorite places on his list. His work captures intriguing moments in people's mundane daily lives that often get missed. Lin Jia-dong highly recommends visitors from other cities to come and see Meinong. When he returns to Meinong, he enjoys chatting with friends at the previous police station that has been converted into a cultural center.

跟著插畫家林家棟 漫遊山城小鎮

插畫家林家棟是高雄美濃人,他最新的作品之一是高雄市政府的2023年插畫年曆,年曆故事從大啖美食的男女主角後方展開,鋪陳出擁擠的人潮以及高雄星羅棋布的特產、美食名店的招牌,饒富趣味。

  林家棟的作品表現出日常風景裡,被人們所忽略卻饒富趣味的片刻。一方水土滋養一方人,家棟以插畫分享故鄉高雄他最喜愛的景點,帶領讀者走進旗山、美濃、六龜及茄萣濕地風光,看見高雄的美好。

  家棟推薦外縣市朋友到美濃逛逛,回美濃時,他喜歡和朋友在改建為文創中心的警察分駐所談天說地。

█ 常美冰店

  老字號的常美冰店是家棟造訪旗山必嚐的甜點,悠閒舒適的氣氛,體現旗山小鎮特色。

█ 新威森林公園

  整排桃花心木是新威森林公園最著名景觀,還可遠眺茂林一帶的風景,是家棟喜愛的避暑勝地。

█ 路人咖啡

  家棟經常到店內外帶咖啡,他誇讚店內設風格獨具,偶然間發現店裏的設計視覺是家棟的插畫家朋友Croter擔任,親近感油然而生。

█ 茄萣溼地公園

  家棟推薦大家前來位於台南和高雄的交界的茄萣溼地,沿著海堤散步,觀賞夕陽與水鳥,家棟說,他特別喜歡這邊遼闊的自然景觀。

█ 美濃獅形頂

  家棟從小就非常喜歡美濃獅形頂─美濃的小郊山,從山頂眺望龍肚一帶的平原,視野遼闊。山頂的五穀宮是當地的信仰中心,節慶時,舉行具客家特色的祭祀活動,洋溢節慶氛圍。
