Zazzle: Give us a brief bio, where you are from and when you started making art.
Vincent: To begin I just want to thank (you) Jes for the interview. I am a vector based cartoon character designer residing in Singapore. I started making vector cartoon character art in 2002. It started with a simple profile picture that I created for my online profile page. That little project ignited my passion towards vector cartoon character illustrations.
Zazzle: A lot of your work is vector illustrations, are there other styles of art you enjoy as well?
Vincent: I always been wanting to make non vector based illustrations, like painting my cartoon art with acrylic paint or another medium. But, there are things to consider before I can proceed. I think I have to get a scanner so I can start painting and get this thought out of my mind.
Zazzle: What has been your favorite design you’ve created, and why?
Vincent: I have to pick Abbot as it was my first cartoon art with an Asian theme that uses bold outlines. It’s still one of my favorites to this day.
Zazzle: When you’re not creating art, what are your other hobbies?
Vincent: I like to do interior rendering.
Zazzle: What got you interested in selling your art on Zazzle?
Vincent: To have someone assist in the production of merchandise, shipping and customer service so as an artist/designer I can focus on the creation process.
Zazzle: What tips can you give someone who is just starting out on Zazzle?
Vincent: This is something I read on the Internet and I like to pass it on to all new Zazzlers. To run a successful store is not easy and it does not come overnight. It requires a lot of hard work and promoting your works on various platforms. Patience and perseverance is the key to success.
