“Did I do it just to entertain my audience while streaming? Or was it repressed in my mind only to be set free? Either way, I embraced the subtle nods to stupid humor, and it became a crucial part of this series.
Motion designer Yat Fung Leung in Hong Kong: “What started as a fun little streaming project for Huevember 2021 became a huge exploration into a style that I was unfamiliar with. Taking inspiration from digital oil paintings and iridescent art, I embarked on an adventure that took me two months to complete.
“But in my search for my childhood, I found myself inadvertently fishing the more juvenile side and started adding dick jokes, swear words, and things that only a 15-year-old boy would find hilarious. But let’s be real, I found these hilarious to this day.
“You’ll find Easter eggs all around the place, and if you know a little bit of Japanese, you’ll get a kick out of the translations.”
“While doing this live on stream, I wanted to interject some of my childhood, with snacks and influence from Japanese pop culture (hence the anime-style opening as a compilation of all these individual pieces).
