Ink Shop

August 30, 2007

The Ink Designer, or Ink Shop, is one of the best local guys on etsy in my opinion. This Boston boy (by way of Hong Kong) flat out rocks it.

Wing Ngan, the man behind the ink, is super creative and fun. He grew up in Hong Kong but relocated to Boston when he was 16 years old. He told me that he grew up watching lots of Japanese cartoons and comics, which have had a real influence on his work. By day, he works as a graphic designer at Ink Design on Newbury Street in Boston and by night, creates gocco prints, which he says, “Make me feel more alive.”

I love Wing’s modern design aesthetic, his bright graphics really pop off the page. (sigh) Finally, prints on etsy that you can give to yourself or your man friend because these are extremely gender friendly. I can see so many toy/action figure collectors out there that would find these prints completely irresistible. I have a small collection of Japanese toys, so even I qualify here. Great work, Wing!
