“The change of environment. I lived in the Philippines my whole life, and now I am here in Korea in the military. It’s a challenge that I don’t get to practice my art. Well I dream. (as in I dream about making stuff hahaha and I jot them down so I can actually give life to them in the future.)”

Why did you choose such career?
“As an artist, I didn’t choose it… I just did what found fun. As a soldier, I felt like I gave too much to the Philippines and none to Korea. And since I am Korean I wanted to give back something to my motherland. And also, when will you ever have a chance to be a soldier (for a short time) in your life?”
When and how did you start?
“For art, it started with Lego. As a soldier, I felt like I needed a break and change of environment.”
Why posses that passion?
“Same with art and military it’s about making others earn something from what you do. Their simple happiness can be a lifelong fuel for me to continue what I do.”
What are your greatest frustrations?
“Right now, no freedom of time, and restrictions of army.”
Do you still have any aspirations in life? When can you say that you are already fulfilled as an individual?
“Yes, a lot. I think I will never be fulfilled for I want to keep on learning. And I am always open to new things.”
What are the things we don’t know about you?
“A lot. And I can’t say. I can call in a rain of fire?”
