Meet illustrator from Bangkok, Miew.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hello, I’m Miew, an illustrator based in Bangkok, Thailand. Mostly I do editorial illustration, it’s fun to interpret contents and express ideas as a picture. In my personal work, I have no main ideas I just have fun with using shapes, forms, and colors from animals, plants, objects, etc.

 

Describe the city you’re living in and what it’s like to live there.

Bangkok is a messy city with sticky heat. It is not a well-designed capital. So many dead-end streets and confusing alleys but the cultural differences and diversity make this city unique in its own way. Living here makes me feel enthusiastic and exhausted at the same time.

What is the best and worst thing about living in your city?

The best is the food. In Bangkok, there is food everywhere, thousands of kinds of food.

Tasty food is power to my brain and creativity.

The worst is the transportation systems. They are really bad.

 

Give us 3 words that describe what it’s like to be a creative in your city.

Fun, Challenging, and Tough

 

How did you start your career in art?

I found myself in love with art since I was a little. It’s probably the only thing I’m good at so I took a visual design major in university. This is where I realized that I wanted to be an illustrator.

Were the people around you supportive of your decision on working as a creative?

Yes, absolutely. Especially, my parents, they have always been pretty supportive.

They let me choose what I want to study and they respect my decision. That’s super supportive for me.

 

What are some goals and ambitions you have for your future work?

To improve my skills in design software, 3D, and animation so I can create more styles of work. And to work with more interesting clients, that’s would be nice.

 

If you could collaborate with any person in the world who would it be?

For now, I can’t decide exactly but it would be fun to collaborate with interior designers or architects.

 

How would you describe the women around you?

Humorous, incredible, and talented.

 

Were there any local female creatives that you looked up to when you were growing up?

Not really. I did look up to some artists when I was growing up but they weren’t local.

 

Are there any challenging aspects of being a female in your industry?

No there aren’t. No matter what gender you are. it’s all about how you promote your works and present yourself.

Do you have any advice to young women who are aspiring to work in your field?

Just keep on practicing and exploring. You will figure it out in your own way.
