Meet a 2022/2023 Peer Mentor
“Hi, I’m Khang Do, I’m a 4th-year Illustration student at OCAD U. My pronouns are he/him, and this is my first year being a Peer Mentor. I’m currently living in downtown Toronto and hoping to stay here for my professional life after graduation as well.
I love to create works that are emotionally charged, personal, but (hopefully) relatable as well; I always think that if my work makes viewers feel something, anything, then I’ve done my job. I think a lot of my inspiration comes from the media I’ve consumed growing up ‘til now, as well as my personal close relationships I have/have had in the past. I love vibrant colors and I love adding small details that serve both as eye candy and easter eggs, alluding to my personal life in my work.
Right now, I would like to develop even more skills in figure drawing and background painting, as I feel like those are my weakest points. I’m excited to see what the future holds, as my journey at OCAD is soon coming to an end. I don’t really know exactly what I’ll end up doing in the future, but I guess I’m most excited about creating more, hearing and telling more stories, and just overall leaving an impact on anyone I might cross paths with.”
