Sketch stage

Although the line work is quite rudimentary, it shows the love of Huyền Đan and his associates for the work and the abundant essence of nature.

I chose blue and yellow-brown as primary colors for this illustration after much thought and consideration as they are the colors of indigo fabric and highland soil.

some inspiration from the pictures

A tiny worm climbing the hat,
eroded rocks and stones,
a deluge of rain,
a forest dust trail,
or even mosquitoes flying by


A litte seed for me to sow
A little earth to make it grow
A little hole
A little pat
A little wish
And a little flower
For me to hold
To listen
To feel
