Hi all, I am the new kid on the block and would like to introduce myself. I will just pretend Im at a party with a cocktail in hand and half drunk.
My name is Kum Weng, Im 22 this year, male, currently in school of visual arts finishing my BFA in illustration. Its been a great experience and I get really cool teachers like Tomer Hanuka, Yuko Shimizu and Marcos Chin, just the little fanboy in me gets excited. But its really hard and its my last year so its kinda stressful!
I just uploaded my website at skummi.com, so feel free to check it out. I really don't know what style Im doing but I love doing drawings in ink and ball point pen. As for painting, I love people like Manet, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Van Gogh and much much more... so that is what I am playing around with now. It really doesn't pay off in my illustration cuz people always say they don't know what Im trying to get at in my paintings. But I feel like I owe it to myself to keep practicing what I wanna do.
So I always appreciate all kinds of feedback. I never knew illustrators existed in Singapore cuz i rarely see illustrations, so I am glad Andrew found me. If you want to just contact me via email and tell me how you get started and whether its a viable profession in Singapore it will make me very happy.
