Wen Ling LIM. A visual storyteller. Born & raised in Singapore. Currently based in Ontario, Canada.
Loves cute, simple & quirky things. Enjoys coming up with stories & ideas and turning them into images- both static and moving!
Hoping to take on work within the animation, games, and illustration industries.
Interests besides drawing include video games (Mainly RPGs, TBS, Rogue Lites & Card Collection!), trying out new foods, and getting lost down the internet rabbit hole reading things. Also currently developing a steady interest in interface design & user experience!
Main tools include: Photoshop / Flash / Premiere Pro / After Effects / Toonboom Harmony / Toonboom Storyboard Pro
But always willing to pick up something new.
