Favian worked in the visual effects industry for the past 6 years on some of Hollywood’s biggest films such as Interstellar, The Dark Knight Rises, and Hunger Games: Mockingjay. He is now teaching animation at a polytechnic imparting his skills to a new generation of artists.
Favian joined Urban Sketchers Singapore in 2012 and has been a regular member ever since. He has travelled with the group to events in Penang and Bandung, and with other sketcher friends for sketching trips to Hong Kong and to Siem Reap to sketch the ruins of Angkor. He was invited to give a workshop in Bandung in 2015 on sketch-storytelling. Favian has had a passion for comics and storytelling since young, and has applied his experience in sequential art to the urban sketching context. He produced a book of his trip to Sketching George Town 2 in 2014, which was very well received by participants of the event (http://sketchpacker.blogspot.sg/2014/09/sketching-george-town-ii-sketchpackers.html). He has also contributed to several publications with Urban Sketchers Singapore, and collaborated to produce a book with drawings of all of Singapore’s public swimming pools.
