How and why did you start to grow your interest in graphic design?
When I was younger I really liked to do comic design, so I would do little funny comics and I would draw them out. I would see [examples] online and I would be like ‘oh how do you do that?’ So I would try to look up ways to draw [the examples I found online] out, and I would try to find ways on how to actually implement [the techniques I saw] into my art. I find an interest in graphic design because that led me to pursue that career option.
Are you inspired by a certain person or thing when you design?
When I was six years old, I remember [my cousin] was working on this animation project for school, and he allowed me to finish the animation for him. I still explicitly remember that one little memory. When he did that for me, I think that [is] when the spark came that like I really wanted to do animation and graphic design.
How is graphic design different from other mediums of work?
It’s cyber-based. A lot of people say it’s like cheating in a way, but I don’t see it as that. I see it as like a whole new way of printing on canvas.
