Craft and creativity continues to grow in China, none of which would be possible without the inspired and daring minds behind the ideas and production. We are asking the creative community in China five fun questions to learn a little bit more about the people behind this burgeoning industry. Hope you enjoy! If you think you should be profiled or you know someone creative who should be profiled send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is LAOWANG1102, from Malaysia.
I’ve been a creative director in an ad agency, and now it’s time for me to pursue unfulfilled dream.
As I’m getting older, I feel like I should be doing what I really want to do, so during this pandemic I’ve made a hard decision to quit my job and do what I’ve always wanted to do.
So I’ve created Laowang character IP from scratch. I hope he can make my unfulfilled dream come true. Laowang is an almighty virtual character that can be anything from a virtual male model to a celebrity. He also has a superpower, if you’re interested to know what it is, you can follow the WeChat account 花臂老王 to know more. It doesn’t matter, how far Laowang will go, whether or not he can become viral, I have to try and do this to live without regrets.
