Orkibal is an artist living and working in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He has been involved with the The SRK since the first Stickerbomb book in 2008 and is best known for his distinctively bright, colourful and outrageous character designs.
I'm from Kuala Lumpur currently working with these guys from Yak Yak Studio who I share my studio with.
Kuala Lumpur is a typical big city but you can still find the exotic foods, unique places and people. But I hate the traffic, inflation and my current government wahahahahahahah
I just like to draw whatever my brain tells me to, which is to draw mostly non-human characters. I love to draw monsters both cute and scary and I like to make my characters either very happy or very sad.
One time me [and my friend and artist] Shieko got involved with an art tour. We got the chance to travel all over the Malay peninsular to paint. What a great experience that was… For the first time in our lives somebody treated us like an artist...great vibe!
I like to dream and imagine first, then i try to sketch it. After that i will decide whether to do it manual or digital. I like to work alone and late at night after my children go to bed, whaahhaha they are so naughty!
Artists i'm watching out for: Shieko, Donald Abraham, Juxtaart, Luey Motion Lab, Artttech, Fadilah Karim, Okayboss, Clogtwo, Zero, The Killer Gerbil, Antz, Trase One and Fritildea.
