Where do you find your creative inspiration?
Mundane everyday moments, human emotions, random thoughts or even a specific melody or lyric of a song, and also a strong drive to grow, improve and be good as my peers and to be able to illustrate exactly what's being conjured up in my wrinkly brain.
Why do you do what you do?
It is a outlet, it's always been there for me without judgement through every phase of my life. It's also like documentation, time capsule if you may, one day I can look back and recall exactly what I was feeling during the creation of an artwork.
What art/artist do you most identify with?
There's too too many, but here are some illustrators: Seongryul, Debbie Tsoi, Frederic Pillot, Helen(peanut.draws) etc.
What themes do you pursue the most?
All sorts of feelings, escapism, nature, I feel are most prominent.
What role does an artist have in society?
Artist in every form, give life to the human experience. I always remember the quote from Dead Poets Society, "We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."
What is your artistic outlook on life?
I worry a lot about life and what's to come although pointless, so remind yourself to be here and present, art helps me in that way, forces me to pay attention.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
You did well and I'm proud of you, your art is valued.
Do you listen to music while you are creating? If yes, share the song and artist that you listen to while creating art.
Current obsessions: Free flow - Kamal Evil - Interpol Rehab - Mokyo
What's the best thing about being an artist?

What is your dream project?
