  2. {Zen Pencils - Gavin Aung Than}
    “I quit my job without any grand plan, it was a big risk and one of the scariest things I have ever done.” - Gavin Aung Than.

    In our latest episode, we speak to Melbourne based cartoonist Gavin Aung Than of Zen Pencils.
    Zen Pencils is a website of inspirational quotes from famous people which have been adapted to cartoons by Gavin. In 2013, the cartoonist’s website was picked as one of the 100 best websites and has since garnered a large list of followers who have been inspired by the quotes and his illustrations.

    “A lot of people think I’m just living an exciting life, thinking of ideas and drawing, but being a cartoonist is a lot of hard work”. And while it may be hard work for Gavin to continually push out good quality comics, the cartoonist reveals in this video why his readers feedback, has in-turn made him find his calling.

    Do support Gavin & ZenPencils with his new published book, full of visual goodness.

    Several months ago I was commissioned by the Halsey Institute out of Charleston, South Carolina to shoot a short film on the infamous street artist behind OBEY: Shepard Fairey. I definitely knew Shepard's work, whether it be that repetitive face of Andre the Giant popping up at every street corner I've ever been on, or as the Obama Poster that definitely did more for an election than just add aesthetic to it - but I was not aware at how incredibly inspiring Shepard would turn out to be. For a new understanding of how this skateboarder turned mega famed street star turned out to be, check this film out.
