David Liew

David Liew (Singapore)

When he’s not illustrating books like Eliza Teoh’s Ellie Belly and Hwee Goh’s Change Makers, David can be found building miniature worlds in unattended drawers. In-between this artistic mayhem, he teaches at local art colleges and polytechnics. If adequately incentivised he’ll admit to illustrating Pippa Chorley’s Eye Spy series and Melanie Lee’s The Adventures of Squirky the Alien as well.
