With a powerful line-up of artists and designers from all over the world, this year we met some talented people. In October we celebrated artist month with a host of makers and creators sharing their favorite pieces.

Illustration

Early into the year we met up with Isatisse who blends her illustration work for both home and fashion. We caught a video with another Hong Kong-based illustrator Kat J. Weiss, whose playful color exploration and absurdist cartoon-like illustrations are mischievous and exciting. Don’t forget to also check out Jacquelin Tam who moving pictures speak through atmospheric inky depths, and Vickie Chan.

Funky bao drawings and colorful characters make Kat. J Weiss‘s messy inner dreamworld a hoot of exploration.
