We know Malaysia boasts an amazing number of talented homegrown artists and one of them recently had the honour of being featured by Netflix on the streaming giant’s social media!
It’s all thanks to her “Stranger Things” fan art, which interprets the “Stranger Things Season 2” episode, “Chapter Two: Trick or Treat, Freak”.
Lyn-Hui Ong, the Penang-born graphic designer and children’s book illustrator who is also a co-founder of ForReal Studio, is among the 18 artists from around the world that was tapped by Netflix to interpret 18 different episodes from the first and second seasons of “Stranger Things”.
“I know I’ve shared this in my story before but it still feels unreal! I was given the opportunity to work on this commission illustration among 17 artists worldwide for Netflix for the #StrangerRewind project, which means season 3 is almost here AHHH !!!” says the caption that accompanied Ong’s post of it on Instagram.
We can certainly imagine her excitement as the fan art was shared by @strangerthingstv on Instagram and Facebook.

The new season of “Stranger Things” premieres this 4 July but before that fans can re-watch the first two seasons on Netflix.
Season 3 will follow Eleven and her friends in the summer of 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana. As romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, they will have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. When enemies old and new threaten the town, they will have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.
