Anime-style illustrations of Indonesian cuisine have gone viral on social media, garnering thousands of approving responses.
Alfeus, who showcases his original artwork on his Instagram page @harousel, said he made illustrations of popular Indonesian food as a means to exercise his artistic muscles.
“I initially only intended the project as a personal creative outlet, because I had no previous experience of drawing food. I mainly focused on animation,” Alfeus said on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com.
His Instagram feed, is filled with 2-D renditions of famous Indonesian dishes, including Mie goreng, sayur asem and nasi tumpeng.
“The glut of positive reactions I’ve been getting has motivated me to keep drawing popular Indonesian food,” Alfeus said.
