Why do you love to draw?
My obsession with drawing started when I was very young. I used to watch a lot of cartoons. The idea of animation got me into drawing cartoons. OR: Why did you learn to use Photoshop? HI: I was inspired to use it when I saw how you could edit your face onto your favourite fictional characters. OR: How long does it take you to create an animated artwork? HI: It depends on how long it will be. A five-minute animation will take a month or two if I’m animating alone. OR: What are the inspirations behind your animated shows on YouTube? HI: SpongeBob SquarePants and The Ren & Stimpy Show. OR: Who is your favourite artist? HI: Edward Gould. He was a YouTube animator who ran a web series called Eddsworld, which is my main source of inspiration. OR: What was your best memory with me? HI: When you helped me do my animations while also teaching me some techniques. OR: If you can make a comic strip of me, what would the story be like? HI: You fighting off zombies all over the world, like in the video game, Bloody Hell. OR: Why do you think I will be fitting for such a story? HI: That’s because you did one when you were in college. You told me you did a zombie movie. OR: That’s right. Now, how will the comic end? HI: It will end with you being eaten alive by the zombies. OR: What?! HI: No! [ Laughs] It will end with you joining the zombies’ league. OR: So, I would actually become one of the zombies? HI: Okay, fine. You will kill them, like the hero would in the Left 4 Dead 2 game. You would escape them in a helicopter. OR: If you were a superhero, who would you be? HI: I’d be Batman! He is stealthy, and he has all the gadgets. OR: You’ve also created cooking videos. What’s one dish you’d make for me? HI: Chocolate Cake! OR: What do I always tell you every morning before school? HI: Always learn something every day.
