“…her style seems to be the point where manwa meets brendan mccarthy. it’s beautiful, beautiful work.”
Warren Ellis, comic book & graphic novel author
What do you get when you combine a frozen chicken and a ballerina, or a cat and a bagpipe, or an insect and a beautiful lady? No, this is not a riddle—it’s the surreal imagination of Daphne Yap. Prepare to be amazed! The illustrations in Daphne 01 are unlike any seen before. This book contains everything from bizarre carnival creatures to ornate royalty inspired by a deck of cards to fanciful fashions. With brilliant line work and exquisite detail, this young artist conveys her characters and creatures with every element necessary to bring them to life.
One of the few female artists in the field of concept design, Daphne is accomplished beyond her years with delightful images that range from as small as a quarter to as large as a door.

“It is rare to find such creative vision and range of design ability within one person. From crazy cats, to unique fashion designs and the Royal Deck collection, we hope you enjoy her work as much as we do, and that you too will encourage her to continue creating her very original works.”
