C.K. KOH has created two picture books to date – Do Noses Grow Long When Lies are Told? (co-written with author Quek Sue Yian), and What Is Your Dream? In 2012 he founded Magicbird Publishing with Sue Yian and together they have also set up the One for One book programme.
C.K. studied in the UK and is currently a senior lecturer at the One Academy, Malaysia’s award-winning college of art and design. He has exhibited widely across Southeast Asia. Influenced by manga and pop culture as well as Western fairy tales, he first created his signature Box Head character as a response to the myth of Pandora’s Box. Becoming a father led C.K. to take his ‘search for hidden hope amongst the monstrous, grotesque and ugliness of our imperfect world’ into the world of children’s books, and to the creation of Box Boy and his quests for answers.
