Artist/Creator Interview 藝術家/創作者專訪
Q1. Tell us about yourself as an artist/creator. 請向我們簡要介绍一下您作為一位藝術家/創作者的背景和經歷。
嗨～我是 布布 Bubu的創作者—草郎，來自台灣，從小就特別喜歡畫畫，
Hi, this is Caolang from Taiwan, I’m the creator of Bubu. I’ve been fond of drawing since I was a child,
and the most impressive thing is that I started to draw on the wall next to the desk,
because I was too bored when I was doing my homework~
Q2. What inspired your cover design for Mossery? 是什麼啟發了你的這個封面設計？
Because I love sleeping and cats! Basically, the two cats in my house will sleep with me every night,
so I presented this warm picture, combined with the place I most want to go but can’t goyet—the outer space.
That’s the reason I turned into Bubu and slept in the Above the Rocket ~
Let Bubu fulfill my dream instead of me ~
Q3. Describe your artistic style and influences. 請描述一下您的藝術風格和受到影響的因素。
My style has been changing a lot, and now I prefer using bright colors with fresh style.
The main reason is that when taking pictures while traveling, I find that I am used to brightening the colorof the photos.
When creating, I will refer to photos, and that’s why I unconsciously influence myself.
Q4. What was your creative process for this design? 請分享一下您這個設計的創作過程。
From the very beginning, the overall tone is settled, and after that, I got some idea about the composition.
Q5. Did you face any challenges during the creation? How did you overcome them? 在創作過程中是否遇到了任何挑戰？如果有的话，你是如何克服它們的？
The first version of the design was relatively monotonous without too many decorations,
and Bubu was almost integrated with the clouds. After discussing with my partners,
I made some fine-tuning and added more elements of the outer space.
Q6. Are there specific themes or messages you wanted to convey through the cover? 你希望通過這個封面傳達哪些信息？
I hope that when you take out this notebook, you can temporarily forget the hustle and bustle,
get along with yourself comfortably, and look forward to the day when your dream come true.
Q7. What is creativity mean to you? 創意對你而言是什麼
For me, the reason I love drawing is that it keeps me stress-free.
Q8. What emotions do you hope people feel when they see your cover? 您期待別人看到你的封面時，它會帶給人們什麼樣的情緒？
Hope you feel relax and quite.
Q9. What advice do you have for aspiring artists or creators who want to make their mark in the industry? 對於那些初入行的藝術家或創作者，你有什麼建議？
