Born at Kota Kinabalu and raised in Sipitang, the Sino-Kadazan’s childhood interest in art matured into a love of comic by his early twenties. He started outputting his keen observation skills and humor to use as a cartoonist and created #kendylife.
Exposure to the South East Asia's art style had a great influence on the young artist, and directed the course of adding the elements of super flat and doodle art into his works. His doodle works take him to the realm of realistic fantasy; beyond his normal but not outside of his reach. Having dedicated himself to art for the last 12 years and counting, Kendrick continues to challenge himself creatively by approaching each doodle and webcomic as an opportunity to try something new.
Currently residing in Kuala Lumpur, he has spent 3 years in the property industry as a digital marketing executive and 3 years as a creative director for various agencies as well as his own. Besides being the founder of Kendy Life Creative, he is also appointed as Chief Operating Officer at Social Grooves and Secretary at the Malaysia Infocomm Foundation. Through his brand, he has won several awards for his works and have provided workshops and speeches in Malaysia as well as in countries like Australia, USA, UK, and Singapore.
My intention is to create a story or a doodle work every time I draw a empty paper or a canvas. This gives me never ending room to grow and experiment with my art.
