During Comic Fiesta 2014, I stumbled upon Running Snail Studio while booth-hopping with my friend. :) I fell in love with their's Art Director's (Fei Giap) work the first time I saw it! I went online and researched more on them. Wow, they do other awesome stuffs as well, such as, ASTRO's local movie (the Journey) poster, LEXUS's advertisement in comic form, etc. The style of their artists vary, but they are all way TOO AWESOME!!! Check out their website here.
I told myself that I wanna meet this group of awesome people! So, I proposed to visit the studio with my college's student council. They agreed :) So I called up Running Snail and asked if they allow our students to visit them! Thanks to Audrey, the managing director who is kind enough to schedule their artists to share their stories with us. I feel bad for 'disturbing' 2 hours of their precious working time... :') Really grateful that they are willing to share their stories with us!
One of the best thing I learned from the visit was an inspirational/motivational sharing by Rachel, one of their artist who studied in the US for 5 years! This was what she said:
“Our skills and our taste are of different levels, our taste is always so much higher than our current skills. That’s why we feel sucky most of the time, because our skils cannot match the taste that we have. So, never give up in training your skills to match your taste.”
Mmm..my dream is to come up with awesome music and share them with the world!!! So, never give up in practising my music producing skills!!! I know that this may sound crazy, I am hoping to come up with a compilation album of my songs this year, hopefully :) I can visualise my album cover with some "anime illustration" of me. LOL
Call me G :)
