IAF Poster Highlights #04 : Interview with Teresa Lim

We’re a few hours away from IAF 2016, and today’s highlight is Teresa Lim ! ( Also known as Teeteeheehee )
Teresa is an OIC regular and multi-talented Illustrator. A LASALLE College of the Arts graduate, Teresa’s combination of skills in pattern design, embroidery and Illustration mixed with creative ideas and serious hard work has made her a creative powerhouse in our industry with over 62,000 followers on Instagram. Yet she remains humble and continues to work hard (making us look bad )- she conducts workshops, live illustration sessions, commissions for big fashion labels like Gucci, creates powerful personal projects that become overnight internet sensations, all this and teach violin classes ! She’s mad !

Christopher Chai  is a graduate with a BFA in Illustration from the School Of Visual Arts. Known across the land for his intense line work and patience. Since graduating he’s been working with local powerhouse – Kult, but now he’s gone full ronin in pursuit of perfect balance of black strokes and negative space. We traveled deep into the forests of Upper Thomson to meet Chris to discuss what keeps this mad man awake and drawing non-stop.

Today’s Poster and Illustrator interview is the with very talented and award winning Esther Goh ! Esther has been making waves in the Illustration scene since transitioning into a independent Illustrator – we’ve been huge fans since. Her work on the Lien Foundation Annual Report with Agency Couple, was a stunning piece of comic art and a beautiful project with narratives that could only be brought to life with her illustrations. She’s worked with clients like Ikea, Esquire magazine and you definitely recognise her vibrant sushi illustrations for Maki-San ! We knew we had to have a chat with her to find out more ! ( editor note : this interview took place awhile back but it made sense to post it now together the amazing poster she’s done for IAF )
