33-year-old product designer, Aniff Zazali, has gone viral for drawing anime-game characters inspired by our beloved kuih-muih

Speaking to SAYS, Aniff told us, "I always watch people from overseas draw 'gijinka', which is turning non-living items into humans, of their food or culture. So, I thought, why not try drawing a gijinka of Malaysian food?"

By mixing game and anime character designs, he came out with 21 gijinka of Malaysian kuih-muih.

His personal favourite of the series is kuih koci in terms of design, and semperit dahlia in terms of the art, as they are drawn in a new art style he has never attempted before.
