About Karl So:
Karl Adrian So is weird. His works are so clean and smooth but his mind is bonkers and full of other-worldy ideas. He's probably an extraterrestrial who likes 80's music (possibly when he first landed on Earth), works at night, and retires when the sun rises (correction: vampire extraterrestrial), and claims he is an illustrator and graphic designer (an obvious decoy). In his human guise, he creates stylish illustrations inspired by vintage comic strips, pop art, and modern vectors (a mirror of how his homeworld looks like) and sells creative crafts at some mall stores (the start of his quest for domination).Â
When you see him, just say hi but don't engage too much. He'll say he's a bit shy but he's really just trying to keep his real identity and origin hidden (he is probably wanted in 48 galaxies).
