This Teenager’s Illustrations Are Incredibly Relatable

Erica Cheah is a talented artist living and creating in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, who illustrates things that happen to her on a daily basis. And many people can relate to her artwork.

Even big names in the illustration world are following her journey, like, for example, the couple behind the Instagram account called Hubman and Chubgirl, or Jang and Fox.

The 16-year-old Cheah’s artistic journey began in her early teenage years when she was only 13 years old. Her aesthetic is simple, and it’s incredibly entertaining for her fans to watch her style develop.

“If you have been following me for a while now, you would know that I am incredibly inconsistent with my drawing style. I guess that’s because I’m exploring my character design,” she shared on Bored Panda.

She also described her works as “comics about being lazy and watching anime because that’s all I am.”

Art is all about expressing oneself and sending a message, and doing so in a way that feels therapeutic. Clearly, Cheah’s doing so in a way that resonates with others!
