Meet The Illustrator: Sina Sin

Sina Sin

Describe your illustration style in ten words or less.
Colourful, vibrant and comic

What items are an essential part of your creative space?
My iPad! and some dessert 😊

Do you have a favourite artistic medium?
I love to draw digitally because it flows well and it’s easy to make quick changes.

Name three artists whose work inspires you.
There are so many! Tom Froese (@mrtomfroese) hugely inspired me. I also found drawing inspiration from Charley Clement (@charlyclements) and Ilya Kuvshinov (@kuvshinov_ilya).

Which artistic period would you most like to visit and why?
I would choose Art nouveau because it is similar as what I want to draw. There are women and decorative curves derived from flower patterns.

Who or what inspired you to become an illustrator?
I was lost what to do after studying graphic design and I realised that I love drawing. I found Tom Froese’s classes on Skillshare and his work inspired me and made me want to become an illustrator. I joined an online class that helped me discover my illustration style (Make Art That Sells) and I found my passion in creating illustrations for children’s books.

Can you share a photo of your creative work space or part of the area where you work most often? Talk us through it.
I mostly work on my desk at home and sometimes on sofa (wherever comfy 😊). So, this is a picture of my desk, a large table and computer which I listen to some music.

What is your favourite part of the illustration process?
My favourite part is when I give the illustration texture and details. The illustration becomes alive after those processes.

What advice would you give to an aspiring illustrator?
Just keep drawing! Sometimes you feel you are lost but when you keep drawing what you love, you will find your drawing style and direction.
