Vince Low is an artist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, who has built a fan following with drawings he executes in an unconventional “scribble” style. On his website, he tells his story—he’s dyslexic, and his limitations in a school system that didn’t understand him earned him punishments. The frustrations in turn set him on a path of antisocial behavior, including gang life, but he eventually found a way out through art.
Regarding his signature style, he says:
“I started off by scribbling on my sketchbook, trying to find a direction. And over time, I discovered something in those scribbles – potential. I knew that it would be a challenge for me to scribble out and capture the souls and characters of those people in the portraits. For that reason, I was determined to make a breakthrough”

Low is one of three artists who’ve just launched the “tiga” sketchbook campaign on Kickstarter. Their aim is to raise $19,000 to produce high-quality sketchbooks that feature some of their work in addition to (of course) many many blank pages for buyers to create their own. In the first day, they’ve raised over $4,000, getting them one-fifth of the way to their goal.
