Sunae literally means “sand picture” and involves the tedious process of making images with colored sand. And let me just say, the results are worth it.
Ice Cream Work is an art book disguised as a storybook. It’s a “come for the art, stay for the art” kind of deal.
The textured color of the sunae is held together with beautiful linework and color design. There’s a lot of skill packed into the images. The lines are round and safe and soft, while the characters’ poses are stiff, and almost doll-like.
