The book is like a journey of memories, winding through different times and places. It is harsh but honest. You can buy the book on or writing me personally!

Use of tools

Firstly, drawn on paper, with pencil. Afterwards, transferring it to digital field and using ProCreate application, making colour adjustments and adding texture.
