Illustrations from Negaraku.
Here at I.M, we appreciate all things artsy-fartsy and unique. In fact, if said artsy-fartsy and unique pieces come from our very own Malaysian turf, the trumpets sound and a party takes place at the office!
Alright, fine. Perhaps I exaggerated. But we still do get excited nonetheless! And when such treasures are found, they must most certainly be shared. Today, we clue you in on a couple of local illustrators who are definitely worthy of adoration. See for yourself.
1) Chow Hon Lam
Also known as the Flying Mouse, Chow Hon Lam is a designer/illustrator who uses tee shirts as his medium to tell a story, be it in a surreal of witty fashion. He recently completed a personal project called Flying Mouse 365, where he created 1 design each day, for 365 days. Each piece is vibrant and colourful, with illustrations that you don't come across everyday.
Title: Swan Kick
Title: Dream Come True
This Kuala Lumpur based independent designer/illustrator is one force to be reckoned with. Her repertoire stretches from fashion illustrations to abstract art and paintings. She also created her own fashionable animal characters; Fashion-na-nimal Darlings and La Petite Illustrations.
Title: Tears of the Muse
Fashion Na-nimal Darlings
3) Swee Gallery
Swee certainly knows how to pack fun into her art. Simply looking at the brightly coloured illustrations will bring a smile to your face! The artist draws inspiration from everywhere and anywhere, as evidenced by the quirky and whimsical pieces.

Title: Toucan Alphabet
Well, that definitely got us inspired! If you're an artist yourself, why not share some of your artworks with us by submitting a story? We'd love to take a look!
