App Developer, 3D Artist, and Digital Illustrator in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada
Howie Woo is a Canadian multimedia artist born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, now based in Coquitlam, BC. Self-taught, he coded & drew WOOMI WINS, described in the iOS & Android app stores as a "comic adventure where a yarn-made boy builds clones to conquer Earth from space". His crochet work from WooWork.com attracted viral attention in Woo's FACE:REC video, and his yarncraft is featured in the book INDIE CRAFT by Jo Waterhouse and STRANGE MATERIAL by Leanne Prain. His 2D illustrations on WooToons.com have appeared in children's books (including WHO DISCOVERED AMERICA? by Valerie Wyatt, HOAXED! by YES Mag, and ROBOTS by YES Mag), and children's magazines (Chirp, Chickadee, Owl, YES Mag, KNOW Magazine). Woo has written & directed 20 short films on WooFilms.com, with his STEALING KISSES reviewed by Roger Ebert as "a rather amazing short film". Howie is now making 3D animations and a sequel to the WOOMI WINS app.
