"I have been drawing since I was a kid, copying the artworks from the 80’s Chinese cartoon “Black Cat Detective” and Dragonball."
Can you tell the readers the story of Chun One Studio and what got you into doing what you do?
"Chun One Studio is my side job thing to do drawings for bands, as another way of “Getting up” besides graffiti. It is also a way for me to get money to buy some sneakers and good food."
You've done some amazing work for some bands that I love myself! What are some of your favorites, music wise, and do you play music yourself?
"Thank you! I listen to a lot of types of music, hardcore, hip-hop, soul, funk, jazz, reggae, metal, alternative, pop…. I don’t really know how to play music though. Respect to all the musicians out there for all the good tunes."
Is there a particular drawing or piece that you've done that you love the most or a favorite band you love working with?
"I enjoyed working with everyone, but the most fun were with my doggs in the Build And Destroy/RZL DZL camp, the Desolated mandem, and the pimped out world travelers Suburban Scum."
What's your life like outside of COS?
"Office, basketball, ESPN Great Outdoor Games Bass 2002, reading, going to shows, eating seafood with my girl and families."
I noticed some of your drawings have a little cute, kawaii, and anime influence to them. Are you big into anime/mangas, comic books, gaming, and any other "geeky and nerdy" things? If so, what are some of you're favorites?
"Yes I love manga and comics. I love to read and also study how the artists evolve their ways of drawing their characters from the first to the last volume. I enjoy titles like Shonan Junai Gumi, Kariage Kun, City Hunter, Surf Side High-School, Old Master Q, Kimagure Orange Road, You’re Under Arrest, Detatoko Princess, Slam Dunk, Digi Charat, Rookies, Peanuts, Archie, Beavis and Butt-head…. I could go on for days on these for real. Oh, and anything that Jim Lee did artworks for."
Thank you so much for doing this interview. Anything else you would like to say or any shout outs you would like to give?

Shout out to Andre Agassi and Air Tech Challenge II, shout out to my main man Jackie Chan, shout out to Craig and Day Day, shout out to Dominic Toretto, shout out to George Costanza, and shout out all the stray dogs in the hood that I feed barbeque pork to."
