Where/how do you gather inspiration?
Too much poverty, demeaning remarks and all irresponsible form of dialogues I’ve heard from society and peers were became my inspirations to keep going, embrace my talent and be empowered. Life is unimaginably tough but when I look around, when I see the diverse images of the world, nature, human activities, professional and great designers, I can see how refined life could be. And that’s how I get motivated to lift my pencil up and create artworks and outputs. And beyond such reasons, my love and passion for art help me to think new subjects and thoughts.
What do you hope audiences retain from your work?
Upon seeing my sketches and illustrations, I’m hoping that my audience could recognize and retain every single glitters of my dedications, linings of uniqueness, shapes that encompass broadness and desire to shine, texture of my patience and perseverance, and the whole details that signifies real focus.
