2 Kazimir Lee COMICALLY GIFTED
Sure, a good laugh (and a hearty meal) is the way to a girl’s heart but Kazimir Lee Iskandar’s comic and artwork aren’t just for fun. Kazimir, who has lived for almost equal amounts of time in Malaysia, the United Kingdom and the United States, recently graduated from Center for Cartoon Studies in May. He has used his comics and works in the field of animation to discuss topics that aren't typically highlighted in the mainstream discourse (especially in Malaysia) — see two examples below. You can read them at along with his other work. Insightful and educational, this particular comic has brought international attention to the treatment that the LGBTQ community (the trans community, in particular) has so far received in our country. Kazimir has described this artwork as a “slow-boil psycho-sexual horror story about a young man re-visiting his teenage fascinations”. Remember when we said it's not all rainbows and sunshine? Exactly.
We like a man who’s good with his hands.
Kazimir also illustrates album covers as well as TV show homages.
