Hi! I’m Tan Kwang Yang (aka Tanky), an illustrator and comic artist based in Singapore. I’m often inspired by my surroundings, from the old shophouse-lined streets of Tanjong Pagar to shivering birds taking shelter from the rain and the Merlion that occasionally swims past on my diving trips.
While I’m working hard to improve my digital paintings and concept designs, my ultimate goal is to create compelling comics with endearing, enduring characters – my comic brand Big Egg Comics is where I’m directing those efforts towards.
In my free time I enjoy jogging at the various parks around the island, doing somersaults in a tailor-made Bruce Lee jumpsuit, and honing my lightsaber-nunchucks skills. On good days, I do all three at the same time.
