ABOUT DAVID LIEW

  • When I’m not writing and illustrating children’s books, I create models and miniatures.  These range from props and miniature sets for television shows to whimsical objets d’art.
    I occasionally teach at the local polytechinics, in subjects ranging from drawing fundamentals and art history to anthropological studies and sequential art.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My journey in art has taken me to many fields… drawing for magazines, developing educational materials, model and prop-making for animated children’s TV series… But my first love is still illustrating. To me, illustrating a story doesn’t replace the words, it offers another dimension to the beauty of the writing.
    In my writing, I don’t give priority to either the words or the images.  My art informs my writing just as my writing guides my art.
