Bioworkz: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

 Gandhi

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

 I am an Artist, husband and brother.

Why do you do what you do?

 

 I love to draw because it's the only thing I've ever excelled at and I'm intensely passionate about it.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

 

 I knew I wanted to be an artist when I was 7. We had a drawing contest in class and I won. It was the first public confirmation that I was good at drawing.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

 

 Recently got laid off and realized that I couldn't depend on company for financial security or satisfaction. Decided to depend on myself and create art that I love. There's no compromise and I'm happier and more financially secure because I took that leap. It does help that my new boss supports my freelance goals and allows me the time to pursue what makes me happy.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

 At 4 years old, I got to witness several of my artistic cousins draw. To see what they could do with a simple pencil really sparked an interest in me. They were my first inspiration to pursue art. 

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

 Made tons and tons of mistakes. Try my best to stop doubting myself and simply create art for the sake of creating art. Just do my best and let things be.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

 Too many projects to name because I'm considering so many things. Some of the options are making custom stickers, temporary tattoos, stock art, more freelance, etc., etc.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

 Do what you love. Practice practice practice! Then practice some more.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

 I love eating potstickers and pho beef noodles to most. BOOYAH!!!
