Illustration is one of my favorite subject when it comes to design. It’s the way the drawings look that truly fascinates me. Found this very cool designer/illustrator Charlene. Her work as i viewed her sketch blog was just truly amazing. Her work speaks of her dedication to her craft.
CHARLENE CHUA spent her youth growing up in Singapore, where she divided her time between drawing, reading comics and failing her Mandarin classes. She started her working life in 1998 as a web designer, and went on to become a senior graphic designer, web producer and interactive project manager, with companies like Ogilvy Interactive and The Gate Worldwide. She decided to pursue illustration as a career in 2003, eventually moving over to full-time illustration in 2006.
Since then she has worked with clients from North America, Europe, Singapore and Australia on a wide variety of illustration projects. Her work has appeared in the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles‘ Illustration West 43 and 45, American Illustration Tribute, and Ballistic Publishing’s Exotique 4, as well as several other art books. She illustrated the children’s picture book ‘Julie Black Belt‘ for Immedium Publishing, and the short story ‘Eidolon’ for Image comic’s Liquid City anthology.
She even gives her readers a glimpse on how she illustrates and how she puts everything together. Truly inspiring.
