Meet Our Artists Series | Yeou-Kang Shaw
Hi Alcmenies. My name is Kang, 32 years old. I’m a physiotherapist, guitarist, pianist, violinist, vocalist. I’m a gamer, but I thrive most in ARPGs, MMORPGs, MOBAs. I require a competitive aspect to games where I can enjoy the salty tears of my foes. Currently progging in WoW Shadowlands, our guild “Internet Friends” is 4/10M in Castle Nathria.
When Eunica first told me she wanted to start selling nappies in 2017, I wanted to be supportive, but when your partner wants to give up a full-time corporate accounting stint in one of the biggest global firms, you have your doubts. But she is smashing it and I couldn’t be happier.
Which of your prints is your favourite?
Obviously one of mine 😁
Who or what influences your work?
All the pop culture / weeb life that I enjoy!
Tell us about your creative process?
Pencil on paper, then traced into Photoshop. It’s a pretty slow and inefficient process as I haven’t learnt how to use proper graphics software / hardware.
Has art always been part of your life?
Yes! I’ve been sketching and drawing since I could hold a pencil, but it never really went anywhere until now.
What are the hardest and most rewarding parts of being an artist?
The hardest part is definitely conception of an idea or even just putting pencil to paper. The most rewarding part is seeing all our customers flock to my prints and they sell out.
