During my College Certification / Diploma years, I was majoring in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics. In which, I was required to learn the fundamentals of design and from there I got into it within seconds! I was blessed to have been provided with the necessary design software from school and that gave me a good head start I guess.
I took a Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics and a Diploma plus in Design Thinking at Singapore Polytechnic and then shifted for a BA Degree in Visual Communication at Nanyang Technological University. In which both schools are located in Singapore. Upon graduation, I did several jobs for experience and to sort of figure my passion out. I used to work as a video editor then a freelance visual art director and now a freelance illustrator and graphic designer.
Currently, I’ve been working with several musicians like M1LDL1FE, Mark Redito and Ffion for various materials like album artworks, branding and single artworks. Apart from that, I’ve been working on paintings for exhibitions, showcases and freelance design work for companies like Zouk, eatmepoptart and Coach.
Waking up at noon, clearing emails and work on the deadlines throughout the day until I usually get tired.
A client that understands your skills and your identity in which respects your creative value not to under-commission your works.
I started illustrating subjects that inspire me like mythology, motifs and astrophysics. From there I found a pattern in my drawings and I guess that’s where I found my ‘style’. The style will start to form and develop naturally even if you start to illustrate out of the things that you like.
Never steal another creative's artwork. It is okay to be inspired but not steal and don’t force art/design.
A beautiful disaster. (In a good way btw haha)
