CREATOR TO CREATOR I
A PROJECT 40 COLLECTIVE’S BLOG SERIES | 2017
Creator to Creator developed out of my own interest in learning more about the processes and thoughts of the incredibly talented Asian.Canadian creators in the community. It also began with my realization at how intertwined the various artistic worlds are, as illustrators find inspirations from musicians, musicians collaborate with poets, and poets become performance artists.
Each month, I invited two Asian.Canadian creators to talk about their artistic process, and introduce us to their “favourite” Asian.Canadian creator who engages in a different artistic medium. For the latter, who they are asked to choose was intentional—if the month featured a musician and a writer, I would ask the musician to choose their “favourite” writer, and the writer, their “favourite” musician. I wanted to emphasize the ongoing exchange happening in the creative community. This portion was in a handwritten format, inspired by The Selby’s Q&A, which I used to adore reading during my fashion-obsession days. I had the pleasure of featuring 11 diverse group of artists.
I re-started in 2019, which you can view here.
