Item description for Daphne 01: Sketches by Daphne Yap by Daphne Yap & Scott Robertson...
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daphne 01: Sketches by Daphne Yap?
Thoroughly creative Jun 13, 2007
The cover of this book does not do the interior justice. I'd seen it for sale on various websites, and really wasn't interested. I had the chance to thumb through a copy, and what's inside is spectacular. Daphne has some delightfully creative designs inside, and a profound attention to detail and line.
The interior is entirely expertly rendered pencil line drawings. If I were to nitpick anything, I'd simply like to see more.
