Malaysia Travel Book is a visual journey of Malaysia as seen through the traveler’s eyes of Xuetong. Each piece was created during a week-long trip around Malaysia in May 2023. A sketch book was carried everywhere with Xuetong, an invaluable tool as she worked quickly to capture the rapidly changing scene. From night markets to music festivals, from marine life to jungle animals. I drew in the local restaurants, on the balcony of the water chalet, and more often on the streets. These scenes have a relaxed and lively atmosphere with loose lines and colors, yet convey the immediacy of Xuetong’s impressions and feelings.
