Here are four new-to-the-blog Thai kawaii illustrators for you to check out! If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check out our previous post in this series as well.
KORAWIA’s adorable and fluffy art style is evident in their doodles as well as their own character, Chilling Punpa, who is an anthropomorphic bread roll chilling at the window before being served for dinner.
When I found out that KANIS was doing couple commissions for Valentine’s last year, I immediately secured a slot as a surprise for my boyfriend. I’d requested to have us drawn in Zenitsu’s and Nezuko’s outfits from Demon Slayer, and I couldn’t be happier with the result! I’m very much in love with KANIS’ art, and it’s evident with how their framed commission as well as art prints/postcards can be seen all around the walls of our house.
Thailand-based readers can grab KANIS’ merch via Round Radish in Chiang Mai, but if you’re based internationally, keep your eyes peeled on updates via Instagram, or you can also send the artist an email using the contact info in their bio.
The next artist is not-so-new to the blog as I’ve mentioned her in a couple of posts before, but this is the first time we’re including Krittiya Chok in a featured artists post. Krittiya has been churning out a lot of new releases since the year began, from sticker sheets to pre-orders for acrylic charms/hooks. Also, peep her freebies in her Ko-fi shop! She’s always been very sweet to talk to, and I can’t wait to order new stuff from her again soon.
I could look at Irin Bun’s works for a long time, and still be amazed at how pretty and detailed every little thing is, and how something seems to be going on in each and every corner. There’s something nostalgic about Irin’s art style that I can’t quite put into words, but I do know that I like their art style enough that I hoarded a bunch of stickers a while back…
Check out the Google Form here for available products if you’re based in Thailand, otherwise, you can send a message to the artist via Instagram if you’re interested or check out their Gumroad for Irin’s digital coloring pages.
