Passionate for doodling and typography, Nguyen Dang Binh, a 29-year-old Banker from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, belongs to a family of artists, but his parents insisted him to choose a Finance job instead of following his heart. This never stopped him from being a die-hard artist at heart, and he spends his nights doodling on an iPad after work.

For him, all his memories have shaped his life and are pivotal to his existence. The time he spent during his college days with friends has always been etched in his memories, which were the happiest time as his spirit was untamable and dreamy. Therefore, he illustrated all his happy times through the interesting faces, said Kingston.

Each of the faces represents a different joyful experience in his college days. Through his design, he wants to be a voice for every art and doodle lover. he hopes to unite art lovers and encourage them to follow their passion and be a beacon of hope and inspiration for the rest of the world.
