Mimi Mashud calls herself a freelance illustrator and professional doodler. But most recently, she is the author of Kuala Terengganu in 7 Days, an account of a trip to Terengganu told as a travelogue-comic. The book, published by Maple Comics, follows on from her self-published debut in 2013, Beijing in 5 Days.”I take more notes when travelling these days, just in case I can turn one into a story,” the Multimedia graduate tells Poskod.MY. But she adds that she doesn’t always have her nose in a sketchbook. “The point of travelling is to experience as many things as you can; being hunkered upon a sketchbook for too long will get in the way of doing other travel-ly things.”Kuala Terengganu in 7 Days is a compelling read: Mimi deftly depicts the situational humour and cultural quirks of her travels with affection and perception. Terengganu is her mother’s home town, and the book includes several family anecdotes.On the strength of her first book, Mimi won a grant from MDEC to complete Kuala Terengganu in 7 Days, which is also available as an interactive app. The final artwork was drawn with pencil and ink, with some watercolour. Mimi also worked with a digital colourist, Tay Yen Ee.
