I am Ton Mak
I am a doodler and visual artist.
I am fond of 4 key things:
elephant seals, fat, moles and root vegetables.
I create friendly creatures, representing a few of the above.
Flabjacks have a curiously ambiguous face, a rotund body, and exotically contrasting personalities. Very often they have moles on their faces too.
I create all kinds of visual art content and creative concepts. Sometimes I make products; things that you can poke, hug or just simply hang out with in the likes of: bean bags, plush toys, soft vinyl toys, and various practical stuff in life.
- Where are you right now?
- Mostly Shanghai, sometimes Hong Kong.
- Is this your real job?
- Yes. very real.
- Do you have a go-to medium?
For doodles, all pens fly; I have a soft spot for Sharpie pens though.
For live art, I work with fat chunky permanent markers or paint.
For installation art, that’s always an adventure; I work across all kinds of materials.
