Karan Singh is a keen vector artist, falling in love with Adobe Illustrator upon first being introduced to it at university. Describing Illustrator as his kind of temple, Karan spent many long nights teaching himself the ins and outs of the program, which resulted in writing many tutorials for various magazines.
After completing university, Karan decided he wanted to illustrate for a living despite the degree he studied. Even though he loves working in vector, he still enjoys playing in mediums outside the digital realm courtesy of a childhood obsession with Art Attack.
Karan currently resides in beautiful New York City.

The thing that connects me to the interwebz.
Paper or Plastic?
If you could resurrect one no longer living person to have lunch with, knowing you will have to return them to the grave right after coffee, who would it be?
It'd suck to bring someone back to life only to put them back in the grave after lunch. Of the living: Stephen Fry.
Preferred method of dealing with an encounter with an acquaintance whose name you can't remember.
Introduce someone I know to them and wait for them to introduce themselves back. Then avoid saying "Ah, that's right!" after.
Why don't you flip the tortoise over, Leon?
Deckard was a replicant.
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck's job is never done.
Favourite client so far?
Most of them have been pretty super!
Favourite imaginary client?
Not really a client but more a brief: I'd love to create the illustrations for a cookbook.
How does your mother describe your profession?
"He's a graphics illustration designer."
Coffee or tea?
What's your earliest drawing memory?
Drawing Daffy Duck at school and thinking I'd nailed it.
How do you prefer to spend your mornings?
Either awake really early and immensely productive or fast asleep in a field of blankets littered with a few mountains made of pillows. There's a fort too maybe.
