Artist of the Month

Superhero part-time jobs by Chow Hon Lam

Chow Hon Lam, a 38 year old illustrator from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is November’s artist of the month. Hon, still residing in Kuala Lumpur, has been designing for about 18 years. He says that he got into designing because he likes to draw, and thinks it’s the main reason he became a designer, and why he is still doing it today.

Hon is the owner of Flying Mouse 365, a t-shirt and print store in which he sells his designs. You can view more of his work there or check out the links below to see more of Hon’s designs.

Hon was kind enough to answer some questions for us in this quick interview which you can see below.

Where did you land your first design related job?

My first design job was working as a part timer in a small design house, I still remember my salary was about $1.50 per hour.

Tell us a little about Flying Mouse:

I started designing tee shirts in 2007, and I used Flying Mouse as my nick name in this industry. The name Flying Mouse was inspired by one of my favorite childhood cartoons called Mighty Mouse, he is a mouse that can fly and has super powers. Mighty Mouse brought me some good times, I hope Flying Mouse can bring the same thing to other people too.

What made you decide to start this “Part-time Job” project?

The “Part Time Job” project actually started with a batch of 6 superheroes with their Part Time Jobs, surprisingly it received very good responses from people. I decided to continue this project and create more “Part Time Jobs” for them. Those superheroes definitely can do more jobs with their abilities beside save the world.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy movies, the gym, food, and spending time with friend and family.

Who/Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Everything around can inspire me because I believe everything has a story behind it, and I’m trying to create a story for them.

What does your office look like?

Currently I work from home. It is a small room, which is good enough for me.

What design tools/software do you use?

My work mostly is digital art, I use a tablet, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

Chrome, Firefox, or Safari?

Currently I’m using Firefox.

What are some of your future plans/goals as a Designer?

Trying to let more people know about my brand “Flying Mouse 365”, it is a tee shirt with a story, I call it “Story Tee”.


The main reason I chose Chow Hon Lam as artist of the month was because of his unique designs. My favorite project of his is the part-time job project. The part-time job project illustrates various superheroes doing jobs other than saving the world. If superheroes were forced to get a part-time job to pay the bills, this is what that job would be.

The project was very interesting and creative and I’m sure you will all enjoy it very much.

365 Illustrations by Enfuzed artist of the month Jag Nagra

October artist of the month goes to designer Jag Nagra. Jag, 29 years old, was born and raised in the suburbs of Vancouver, Canada and has been designing since her graduation from design school in Spring of 2006.

Jag is most known for her 365 design project (which we will cover below) in which from January 29, 2012 to January 28, 2013 she created an illustration a day (365 days, 365 illustrations).

You can view/follow more from Jag Nagra via the links below

Before we get to her awesome designs, Jag was kind enough to answer a few questions for us in a small interview which you’ll see below.

Where are you currently residing?

I live in a different suburb of Vancouver, where I just purchased my first home this summer!

What made you want to become a Designer?

My older brother had taken some design classes in University, and one project in particular required that he photograph my hand, and insert it into a typographic layout. I think that was the moment that I realized that this was an actual profession. People got paid to do this kind of thing? That’s when I really started thinking I wanted to do this. Before that point, I had no idea that Graphic Design even existed. I was oblivious.

What University did you attend and what’s your degree in?

After high school, I spent 2 years taking general studies at a post-secondary institute. Throughout my entire childhood, I just thought you went to University after high school, and then got a career. I didn’t understand how it worked. And so after I walked away with this diploma in my hand, I was no closer to a career than before I had started. I then applied for a Graphic Design program at the Art Institute of Vancouver without really knowing what that entailed, and ended up falling in love with it.

Where did you land your first Design related job?

My very first paid design job was working at a small greeting card manufacturer that created Christmas cards for corporate clients throughout Canada. My job was to input their pre-chosen messages to the inside of the card. It really wasn’t the most stimulating job, but I was only there for a few months since it was seasonal.

Tell us a little about Page 84 Design:

Page 84 Design started as a creative outlet for me outside of my day job. It’s a way for me to experiment, and push myself into new realms. Last year, I began a 365-day illustration project so that I could teach myself how to illustrate. That lead to getting noticed by design blogs, which then lead to people hiring me as an illustrator. So I guess at the moment, I’m calling myself an Illustrator.

I’m excited to see where I’ll go with it next, but it’s cool because it’s all up to me. I don’t need anyone’s approval before I post something or experiment with something.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

You mean when I’m not snuggling with my dogs? I have a huge passion and respect for photography. You could say that was my first love. These days, I gladly forgo my Canon camera equipment for the ease of use of the iPhone, and the ability to instantly share photos through Instagram. I’m obsessed!

Who/Where do you draw your inspiration from?

I love all things retro and mid-century modern.

What does your office look like?

I found this old solid wood desk on Craigslist that belonged to a retired doctor. It’s from the 1960’s and it’s so cool. They were moving to a new office space, and luckily I swooped it up for FREE before it ended up in the landfill. The donkey is an illustration of mine that I got printed on canvas.

Jag Nagra Office Picture

What design tools/software do you use?

I use a 17″ Macbook Pro, and I would say 80% of all the work I do in in Adobe InDesign..even illustrations.

Chrome, Firefox, or Safari?


What are some of your future plans/goals as a Designer?

I continually want to create things that will exist outside of a computer screen. A few years ago, I had this panicky realization that one day I would die, and my entire career would exist only in my computer files and I would stop existing as a designer. The thought of that is what lights a fire under me every day. I want to leave things behind for people to hold in their hands.


Now the exciting part, Jag’s designs! Obviously we won’t be able to include all 365 illustrations she created for her 365 project, but we will include a few among other projects she has done. You can view all 365 illustrations on Jag Nagra’s Behance portfolio here or view them in her Vimeo video below.

These illustrations are truly awesome and I like the simplistic approach, you may recognize some of these illustrations as popular celebrities, as well as animals and a variety of other types of people and characters.

Minimal Classic Children Story Posters

We are super late for artist of the month this month, but we didn’t miss it! Artist of the month for September 2013 goes to graphic designer Christian Jackson. Christian, born in Wisconsin and currently residing in the west suburbs, St. Charles, IL (Chicago); has been doing graphic design for 10 years now.

I chose Christian as September artist of the month because of his minimalism graphic design project, Classic Children’s Stories. Minimalism has been very popular recently and so have the re-designing of movie posters in minimalist form. These poster designs by Christian have encompassed the barest possible design while still being able to let you recognize which story they represent.

You can view/follow more of Christian via the links below:

Before we get to the posters though, I wanted to share with you some of the questions I had a chance to ask Christian in a quick interview.

How old are you?

Just turned 31 on September 15th.

What made you want to become a Graphic Designer?

I grew up in a very creative home. I’ve illustrated all my life. However my brain is just as much technical as it is creative. The organization of design really appealed to me, and it was a way to make my creativity lucrative and inevitably do what I love for the rest of my life – create!

What University(s) did you attend and what is your degree in?

Ha! No universities, just a terrible technical school that I don’t want to credit by even mentioning its name. I got my degree in print design, but now I work in interactive. Outside the basic fundamentals of design, I’m completely self-taught.

Where did you land your first Design related job?

Well I did small design jobs here and there on the side of a lame full-time job for years, but my first official full-time design gig was with VSA Partners.

Tell us a little about Sinch Art & Design:

Sinch started in 2007. Back then it was known as Square Inch Design. It’s my freelance alias for art and design. Online it’s a place where I post my latest work whether it’s a new art print for sale or a new interface for a client, and I also share a plethora of inspiration from other designers on my blog.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Spare time? What’s that? My time is always filled with something if it’s not client work, then it’s personal side projects, like the children’s book I’m currently illustrating ( And when I’m not working I have two, tiny, crazy, little girls that keep me plenty of busy… and entertained.

Who/Where do you draw your inspiration from?

There is a thriving design community out there, which of course you already know. You’re blog in a great part of it. I’m plugged in all the time. Design in constantly in my vision. And though I draw a lot of inspiration from it, I’d have to say that my biggest source of inspiration is derived from ugliness. Things that are poorly designed really get my creative mojo going. I can’t help but try and come up with ways to make it better.

What does your office look like?

It’s the exact opposite of inspiring, which is just how I like it. I put a small desk in the corner of my loft. It has wonderful light and that’s all I need. I freelance and most of my creative thinking happens away from my desk. If I’m at my computer I’m working. So, the fewer distracting frills the better.

What design tools/software do you use?

I tend to stick to Photoshop and Illustrator for my design work. There aren’t very many print jobs these days so InDesign remains neglected which is just the way I like it. I also do a lot of illustration work, and for the digital stuff there is nothing better the Sketchbook Pro. It’s the most real-to-life drawing and painting app I’ve ever used. Hardware wise, I’m still rockin’ my iMac from 2009, and a Bamboo Wacom Tablet from 2007. You don’t need the latest tools to do the job right I guess.

Chrome, Firefox, or Safari?

It use to be Chrome across the board but since iOS 7 I’m diggin’ Safari on mobile and I keep Chrome for my desktop.

What are some of your future goals as a Graphic Designer?

To not be one… or at least not in the traditional sense. The only downside to my job is having clients, and if any of my clients are reading this right now, well… it’s true and I’m not sorry. I love designing, and I love creating things. My ultimate goal is to do it at my own discretion without the restrictions of what the client wants. I want to use my design abilities as an art-form and make things based on my own interests and inspirations. If people like it and want to buy it, then great! No client strings attached. It’s selfish and far fetched I know, but the heart wants what it wants.


Now the fun part, his graphic design project! Here are just a few of the classic children’s stories posters by Christian, you can view all of them on his website here. These children story posters were done using the minimalist approach. You can also order any of these from Christian’s website to be put on a poster, iPhone case, T-Shirt, card, pillow, and more.

Minimal Pixar and Disney Characters

August’s artist of the month is Mirko Landi, a 22 year old graphic designer from Milan, Italy. When asked what made him want to become a graphic designer Mirko answered:

“When I first started studying Visual Communication I didn’t quite expect this job to be the way it turned out to be. I got passionate understanding the importance of creating something which just not looks good, like art itself, but actually finds the best way to incorporate both beauty and meaning.”

“I don’t usually call myself just a graphic designer, cause I believe that what I deliver is beyond graphic – it’s a product, it’s sell-able and has a message in it. At the moment I’m working really hard to grow my graphic and visual skills to become a brand strategist and a consistent Art Director.”

Mirko has created these minimalist Pixar and Disney characters which he says is one of his dearest projects. It was developed independently as a personal project while having his best time in Australia. He goes on to say:

“I think that my attitude to the project reflects my state of mind during that time (in Australia). I’ve always been a great fan of traditional animation and I wanted to represent their beauty with a consistent style and create a sort of animation encyclopedia. It’s now been more than a year ago but I still wish to find the time in the close future to keep on developing this project, which also got so unexpectedly appreciated, maybe with an animated icon/gif version. Stay tuned!”

I’m glad I stumbled across this awesome project, I think it’s one of the more creative things we’ve published here on Enfuzed and I hope you all enjoy it. You can check out more from Mirko on his behance page.

The Proverbs Project by Michael Masinga

Earlier this year we did an article on 20 magnificent examples of typography (view here) and at number 18 on the list was Proverbs 10:13 by Michael Masinga. I liked his project so much I thought it should get a feature. So June Artist of the Month goes to Michael Masinga for The Proverbs Project.

For those of you who don’t know, Proverbs is a book in the bible filled with old proverbs that provides insight on life and the way one should behave and act to live a good life. You can follow Michael on Behance, Twitter, and Facebook.
