Robert Chang - Digital Illustrator
Interview by Leonard Teo, 1 July 2003
When we began searching for Advisory Board members for EXPOSÉ 1, one of the digital illustrators who had made a mark in the community was Robert "Lunatique" Chang. Currently living in Fuzhou, China, working on his animated short film "Promise", Rob plays a distinct role in the community on CGTalk and other digital illustration forums, constantly giving critique and posting his own work in progress for peer review. We took a brief moment with Rob to chat about his artwork.
About Robert "Lunatique" Chang
I was born in Taiwan, and immigrated to the U.S. when I was 11. I grew up with Japanese animation/manga, sci-fi/fantasy books & illustrations, comics, films..etc, but I also have a passion for music, fashion, literature, photography ..etc.
My professional path started in art with comics/freelance illustration at age 18 (1991), and continued into the video game industry in 1998, and that's when I first got into digital art. I was doing textures and concept art for various games, then moved onto art directing. I left the game industry in 2001 for a sabbatical to work on my own projects. Throughout my creative career, I never was satisfied doing just art, I also did music, writing, film, photography, fashion design..etc on the side.
