– How and when did you become an illustrator?

Long ago, we just love doing illustration.

– What have you worked before an artist?

Nope, after our graduation, we immediately became poor artists lol

-Where do you work and what are you working on at the moment?

We are working at our own studio named Laฬ in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We are both making comics/graphic novels now as we want to tell our own stories. Picture books are cool but they are not enough space for our stories at the moment so… I work as a freelance illustrator so I do all of my work at my own studio space, where I have all of my equipment (pc, Wacom tablet, reference books, drawing materials). I’m currently working on a personal project that I’ve had in mind for some months, it’s in the realm of character design, illustration, and toy design. In a nutshell, I’m creating a bunch of kaiju- inspired monsters (i.e.: Godzilla) with a clear influence taken from a variety of ancient Peruvian cultures. I plan on making a bunch of them and release them as prints, stickers, and sofubi or resin toys. This is my first time going the toy route so there’s a lot of stuff that’s new to me! But that makes it really exciting and I hope to have a finalized tangible product before the end of the year.
