Resume | CV

After leaving their extraterrestrial amphibian lifestyle to join earth, Kayden Chan hones their craft in illustrations, concept and game art. They are based on the outskirts of Toronto, Canada but they daydream of living in a cozy mountain cabin with an endless supply of warm coco.Their work is heavily inspired by psychological narratives, decorative surrealism, and the ecosystem of indie gaming and storytelling. They hope to one day develop an interactive world of digital dreams. When break time comes around, they enjoy taking hikes, mixing sweet warm drinks, and questioning the silly line between food categories.
