Video Interview with Sycra

I did a video interview with Sycra (A great artist and a great contributor of the art community who runs a very resourceful youtube channel). We had a really fun time chatting about art. Enjoy!

Being American-born HK Chinese, it's real hard to find inspirational role models that I can relate to.  I can relate to the family obligations... pleasing your parents... cross culture interpretation of art... fine art vs pop art... career decisions... marriage... , etc! etc!  I'm sure that's a part of the reason why Jim Lee went to med school before ending up at DC. 

One thing I'd like to share is that I tried to surround myself with other aspiring artist friends and challenged them to draw 'outside' the box and to post to DA.  But they were too scared that someone would 'steal' their art or it wasn't good enough and they never reciprocated motivation back.  However, when I saw all the work ArtGerm had posted on DA, I thought to myself "only Stanley Lau can do that" meaning that; thieves can't steal your creativity, getting critiqued is the best way to improve yourself, and worry about motivating yourself before motivating others.

I will admit that I got put off with keeping up with this hobby because of the non-official and official Darkstalkers art contests, but watching this interview has renewed my esteem.  Perhaps having Relic being immortalized isn't the end of the world and maybe being in the 30s is not too old to try to turn this around as a career.

I'm so greatful you joined deviantART !  I wouldn't have joined DA if you weren't on here!  Thank you for sharing this video interview.
