Ray Toh ( or Torei, his online handle ) is a Singapore based illustrator and concept artist. We were classmates and movie buddies in Temasek Polytechnic’s animation course many years ago. “Voyage” is a spiffy collection of Ray’s illustration works he printed in preparation for attendence at the San Diego’s Comicon 2008.
(above left) “Kong” was selected for the 12th edition of Spectrum, a reputable illustration publication for fantasy/sci-fi art.
(above left) At the adamant behest of Ray i bought the framed copy of his Akira fan art to Sunrise Emotion Animation Studios while I was still working on Freedom and left it in katsuhiro Otomo’s office. Let’s hope the man hasn’t cleared it out with the trash…yet. :p
