BOOK KARNJANAKIT

 

aka Koobta (they/them)

Book is a cartoonist and illustrator originally from Bangkok, now living in Baltimore. Every day they are still learning and unlearning about gender, sexuality, environment, and cultural differences. These themes can be found throughout their work.

While not drawing they are often found watching birds, playing board games, flying kites, rock-climbing, thinking silly thoughts, exploring the city, and eating yummy food. Inspired and energized by fun and joy, these hobbies often show up in Book's work as well.

Their frequently used media include watercolor, pencil color, collage, and digital.
