Vernon Vijayan Koh

Who is Vernon Vijayan Koh? Well Vernon is a tattoo artist here in Singapore. I had the privilege of interviewing him for tattooink.tv during the Singapore Tattoo Show 2010. Instead of blogging about his tattoo work, I will rave about his drawings!

The guy can draw!!! He'll draw your ass off if you give him a chance. When I first saw his artwork, I was blown away! You know, I thought he was kidding when he showed me his artwork folder. I looked at his drawing and I assumed they were pictures taken with a camera! His choice of tools? Color pencils!!! Should I add that Vernon is color blind?! I ain't shitting you! He can't see certain shades of color but that sure hasn't stopped him.

Pictures say a thousand words...check out his artwork!

  2. HAHAHAHA! Yeah, Ann pointed that out to me. Now when I think blue, I think Avatar. I've never seen Avatar so I assumed....

    And yeah, these are drawings. I never knew one could achieve work like this just from color pencils.
