We’re delighted to have a little chat with Joyce Chng, illustrator of “Solitary” in The Future Fire #64.
TFF: How did you go about illustrating “Solitary”?
Joyce Chng: As usual, I read the story and let the images come to me naturally. For "Solitary", the visual images came easily. First, forests, and then crown shyness.
TFF: Is there a theme-song to your current work-in-progress?
JC: There are many projects I am working on. Contracted gigs and self/personal projects. I have my Joan of Arc “PhD”/independent research. I have also started feeler paragraphs on something I’d always wanted to write for a long time (since 2001!). It’s a fantasy, to say the least. So, the theme-song is “Remembrance” from Delerium’s Karma album.
TFF: With whom, alive or dead, would you most like to collaborate, and on what?
JC: Terri Windling. I would like to collaborate with her on animal people. (I also miss Terri—met her when she visited Singapore for Singapore Writers' Festival).
