So what are you? A concept artist?

I'm a concept artist working in the entertainment industry - I create visuals and designs that are required in a project's production. I help bring a project to life through images. Design development and concepts mainly in the area of video games, animation and film.

Are you an illustrator as well?

Yeah, I have experience in children's book illustrations and book covers. I am completely open to this type of work, I love drawing stylised.

I heard you studied in the United States. Where d'you go?

Los Angeles, California. I went to Concept Design Academy. I flew there as a shy young artist, and came back as a completely different person. It was a special trip that meant a lot to me and my art journey. Also their cheese is orange, it's weird.

Influences or those that inspire you?

Miyazaki, Herge, Imperial Boy, Makoto Shinkai, Craig Mullins, film and animation, games I watched my brother play when I was 10, my sister, going outside, people and travelling.

I noticed you sometimes use the name Mei-Xing. What does it mean?

Mei Xing is my Chinese name. It's written with the characters 'beautiful' and 'heart', pronounced 'may-sing' or 'may-shing' depending on dialect.

Do you specialise in environments for concept art work?

Yes, environments and storytelling, mainly what my folio is made up of. I'm passionate about it because I like becoming immersed in creating a new world from imagination.

But do you do characters? I want stuff like that done, can you do it?

It's not really a question of if I can and can't do it: more so where my strengths lie. I have the ability to do anything, but doing them to the quality that you want is important. For example, characters just happen to not be my area of design at this current point in time. It's mainly environments and storytelling. If you need a character designer, I have artist-friends I can recommend.

What programs do you use to draw and paint in?

Photoshop.

Why do you love art so much?

It's my passion. Ever since I was young, it was the one thing that I kept doing that I'd never get sick of. I tried out a lot of creative activities, some of which I wasn't good at or didn't click with, but drawing seemed to be the one thing that stuck with me even until today. Translating images from your imagination into a physical visual form is very gratifying. The whole idea of it being a never-ending journey and how there's always new things to learn and improve on; THAT is what art is all about.
