E.K. Chan is a tattoo artist and aspiring environmental scientist.

They doodled and daydreamed through a B.Sc. in evolutionary biology. After graduating, they bounced between odd jobs, including shelving at a used bookstore and illustrating for online paleontology courses.

They then made the best of their variously pointless skillsets and began working as a tattoo artist in Toronto, where they are happiest laying lines in the shapes of plants and animals.
