Comfort in the Unknown

Comfort in the Unknown 

Nancy Pappas 


Right before Nancy hopped on a plane to Vietnam, we caught up in a coffee shop on Fulton street in Brooklyn. We chatted about new cities, street food, and her amazing Illustrations.


I got way too excited about what she might draw when on her trip and how we could work together for this issue. She then, by a stroke of genius, Nancy turned to me and said:  

  "I find comfort in the unknown. new food, New places,  people, and experiences. exploring new cultures eases me." 

Or something like that. In this illustration series, Nancy explores this whole new country, culture, and people in vibrant colors all through the food-lens. 

Did we mention how much we adore her, her passion, and talents?
