One of my favourite ways to find new and interesting things on the web is with StumbleUpon. Using either their website or toolbar, StumbleUpon lets you “discover and share great websites…matched to your personal preferences”. I personally like the Stumble toolbar – you never know what you’re going to get and it might be something you may not have normally found through a search engine.
Today I StumbledUpon Australian illustrator Ken Wong. Ken studied multimedia at the University of South Australia but says “I learned most of what I know about art from reading books and involving myself in online art communities. The internet is a great environment for digital artists to learn from each other and advance their skills.”(1)
Ken works as an art director for the computer game studio Spicy Horse in Shanghai. His work has also appeared in the Spectrum and Exposé art annuals and a few other magazines. You can view more of Ken’s work and artistic process (from pencil sketch to finished Photoshop image), by visiting his website at Kenart.net.
