Foo Swee Chin

FSC is an artist I've followed for a long time. She is based in Singapore, and is best known in America for her work on the first 12 issues of the comic "Nightmares and Fairytales". She has published other comics and art books of her work in Singapore, in addition to the several books published by Slave Labor Graphics and Neko press. She has also done a promotional book of illustrations for Starbucks, published in Taiwan. I find that her work is an interesting example of someone who began in a very manga-esque style, and slowly evolved away from it into something more unique. Apparently Singapore's local comic artists are getting more international attention of late.
