What is the driving force in your life? — Curiosity. Creation. Connection. I found endless joy in learning and discovering, about cultures, people, places…which then inspires me to create. Since I started drawing Tiny Eyes Comics, my biggest motivation has come from making connections with my readers. I love sharing my stories and listening to theirs. It’s almost like we get to meet each other through these stories. I’d love to continue building bridges between cultures so that we can visit and talk to our “foreign” neighbours without fear.
What is a book, tv show or podcast that you think people definitely need to get into and why? — “The Three-Body Problem” by Liu Cixin. I wrote a recommendation on my Instagram account (Tiny Eyes Reads No.3). Even though categorized as science fiction, this book touches upon so many subjects: civilizations, humanity, politics, religion, anthropology, sociology, morality…It makes me rethink about culture on a different scale and our position as human in this universe. It’s really mind-blowing.
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to your previous self? — Remember why you are doing what you are doing, and keep showing up.
