    Cheong Suet Mei, Shermaine (aka See You See Me) is currently on an illustration journey, which first began while she was working in advertising and design. Her love for form, textures, and colours led her to explore how she could be more creative and bring her ideas to life. Soon, illustration became her outlet to do so. Using a blend of water-soluble colour pencils, pastels, and digital painting, Shermaine hopes to share stories and messages in her illustrations that can brighten one’s day, or leave you with something unexpected—making you go “awww” at the simple joys of everyday life and common scenarios.
