Whiff - Excerpt 1

September 23, 2022
Children's Books
Digital painting with chalk texture and batik-inspired style and motifs, of a close-up scene of a young girl with short curly hair, some tied up in a tuft on her head, rubbing tears off her face as a colorful scent cloud drifts pass her nose.

First excerpt from Whiff, a wordless picture book that I am working on that celebrates the fragrance and flavour of Southeast Asian cuisine and the herbs and spices used in it, along with the warmth of family evoked through food. The style is a combination of chalk-textured, representational rendering and batik-inspired outlines and motifs.

Painted in Krita.
