About Me

I'm Aster Lau, an artist living in sunny Singapore. I recently graduated from Visual Communications in Nanyang Technological University (School of Art, Design and Media).

I am a driven individual who is proficient in graphic design and illustration, but have experience in other areas such as video-editing and storyboarding as well.

In my spare time, I draw and share my love for comics, games and shows online through my social media, and participate in local and international conventions. I also have a handsome little budgie friend at home who is very obsessed with spinach.

Feel free to drop me an email at: asterlau.94@gmail.com
