The world is full of surprises. I never thought of an artist until college because I haven't drawn since elementary. What introduces me to the art world is Graphic Design. What led me to the path of Graphic Design is my cousin who is also a Graphic Design. When I was young I never thought of art as a career thus I never touched it until college. Graphic Design is like a stepping stone in the art world and opens more opportunities for me.
After I start exploring things and also inspire to be an illustrator after I begin Instagram 2016. When I start Instagram I start to follow traditional artists and thus all begin when I get my first batch of Copic markers. At first, it was difficult to start since I’m really bad so I thought of it as a Hobby. Slowly it became a passion and my childhood of movies, games, and cartoons greatly influenced my artwork as well. It was until I joined the Video Game Development Club in Fullerton that I decided what direction I wanted to be in my art career. I loved video games and when I started designing video games with my group, I felt fulfilled seeing my designs at work. I wanted to be a concept artist and hopefully be able to work in the game industry one day.
