Leong Wan Kok is a Malaysian comics artist and illustrator currently living in Kuala Lumpur.
His wonderfully eccentric and at times intricately detailed images combine stylized, cartoon-like figures with intense rendering.
His darkly bizarre subject matter is accentuated by his choice of a dark palette and lots of textural variation, and highlighted with accents of higher chroma colors.
His website, 1000tentacles.com, is shared with illustrator pH Khor, though credits are not given for individual pieces.
There is a short interview with Leong Wan Kok on Jazma Online. There is also a preview on Liquid Citizen of his contribution to the Liquid City comics anthology (more info here).

amazing painting… thank you for this post and blog!
You find some of the best art. I love the juxtaposition of very traditional, historical work and the new and exciting. Thank you!
