I’m Starving Artbook:
Sweets and Politics


I'm Starving Artbook

Comic artist Kwanrapee’s I’m Starving Artbook: Sweets and Politics (เดี๊ยนหิว!!! Artbook: ขนมหวานและการเมือง), published earlier this year, is a record of the stickers, fleurons, and illustrations she created between 2019 and 2022. This was a period of protest against Thailand’s military government, and the book’s title has a clever double meaning: “If this artbook accurately depicts my hunger, then I also hunger for freedom and democracy.” Kwanrapee’s stickers produced in support of the protesters include a royal portrait of a cartoon duck, similar to a controversial calendar whose distributor was jailed this year.
