Spotted! Tanky





In an alternate universe, I think I might become an astronaut or theoretical physicist.
I want to explore the unknown by harnessing the greatest power of our mind – imagination … or a spaceship.

A comic artist and illustrator working across genres and subjects, Tan Kwang Yang aka Tanky caught our eye with a poster he submitted for the Illustration Arts Fest 2016.

“I’ve been dabbling in different styles and media and subjects but I haven’t been able to set my heart on a particular one. Recently the fog’s cleared and I’m able to see the horizon much more clearly. I finally have a clear picture of my direction and a definite goal that I truly believe in. It’s not going to be an easy journey, but truly nothing satisfies me more than being immersed in the creation process; the moment I’m able to translate thoughts in my head to a physical form, whether it’s an illustration or comic.”
