André Wee

Providence, RI, USA
André Wee is a 24 year old Illustrator, Designer and Visual Artist from Singapore. After 2 years of service in the military, jumping out of planes and living in jungles, he currently finds himself back in school, finishing up a Bachelor's degree in Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) where he is still sleep deprived from work but very oddly happy.

Apart from drawing and painting, André enjoys looking at and occasionally making terrariums in his free time. He hopes to one day construct one that will actually last longer than a week.
