“Sad Egg Moment” by Thea Pham

Thea Pham 

Thea is an illustrator who wants to make it into the animation world. She spends most of her time drawing at home during Covid and occasionally biking around town for a healthy/ balanced lifestyle (sort of). She loves sci-fi movies and triple-A game cutscene, so if you have the same interest, she would love to geek out with you!

Sad Egg Moment is a tribute to Thea’s deep passion for egg. Egg is nutritious and delicious. You can have it boiled, deep fried, fried, put it in instant ramen, or egg fried rice. Egg is truly amazing.

This illustration was done using watercolour media only and plays around with distortion for an expressive and raw outcome.
