︎Up To No Good

My name is Marcus 👋🏻, & I'm an art director born in Singapore 🇸🇬  raised on long-plays, sitcoms and old pokemon games. Now I’m in New York 🍎, into framed art prints, into youtube documentaries, into childhood hobbies I can’t drop, in a food insider video (I don’t remember signing a waiver for) and in too deep making Mischief.

Here’s a list of other Stuff I’m Into.
