In her new book East Meets West (Amazon), graphic artist Yang Liu illustrates the differences between Western and Eastern cultures. From the way people confront a problem, deal with the boss, approach a queue, self-perceive, or talk in restaurants, it’s quite obvious that behaviors range between the two hemispheres. As they say, a picture is a thousand words.

I’ve always loved the world of psychedelic art and how people would turn the original art into flashy gifs. I wanted to add to the world of it because I always saw the same things. I ran across some work that George Redhawk did and was fascinated by the motion art. It took me about a year to find out what it was called and how to did it. Once I found out the method, well, you can say the rest is history.

I have a lot of people asking to show them how I do it. But I can’t. If you’re truly passionate about motion art, then you’ll take the time that is required to learn your own style.

“Nothing pains some people more than having to think.”

— Martin Luther King Jr.

Hard work is heart work is head work. To think in solitude is scarce in a world where your first opinion is always someone else’s.
