︎Currently Surviving

My name is Marcus 👋🏻, and I'm an art director from Singapore, currently in New York, New York 🍎.

I love making good 💩 as well as 💩 that does some good—sometimes at the same time.

Oh, I’m also a shiba uncle 🐕 (and an actual uncle now), a long-play aficionado, a Lego nerd (I know, I collect a lot of stuff) and a fan of trippy visuals (oh bother, another one of those Art Directors 🙄).
