Nyepi 2022 – Part one: my Nyepi

Yves' latest artwork, a manga line art
That’s my latest artwork

Well, you probably remember Nyepi, the Balinese New Year’s Day. On that day, nobody is allowed to go outside, except from the designated guards (Pecalang), all lights have to be turned off and cooking as well as making noise is forbidden, too. That’s why the day is called the “Day of Silence”.

So during the day, I made a drawing and read some books, and after having eaten before sunset, we had all our lights turned off until the next morning, so we went to sleep pretty early.
