Bored Panda reached out to Jason Shyang again to learn more about his creative process and himself. The artist shared that his creative process is very typical. "Like most content creators, my process is ideation > draft > inking > coloring > posting. The hardest part is the ideation process; this is the stage where it is easiest to have writer’s block. I believe ideas come from things and people around us. I also sometimes find inspiration from social media."

We asked Jason how creating "The Potato Couple" comics has influenced his own relationship and personal growth. "The comics act as a reminder for me to always review my life and my relationship from time to time. Writing stories about people from different walks of life inspires me to reflect on myself, cherish the people around me, and also be grateful for what I have.

Our readers also play an important part in my life. Through their messages, I feel honored to know that my artwork has helped them get through difficult stages in life and relationships. Some even gave up the thought of hurting themselves because of my comics. This motivates me to create artwork that can inspire people."

Dang! That's smooth! Wish I had thought of saying this, instead of a somewhat awkward, cringy public declaration 🫣

When asked how he stays motivated and inspired during times when creativity seems to be running low, Jason responded that when his creative juices are running low, he takes a break and steps away from work. "We need some input from our surroundings when we output too much; it can recharge our brains and pause the draining effects of the creative process. The most tiring part is dealing with the ever-changing algorithm and the ever-changing tastes of social media users. Hence, I need to keep myself open to different content and different modes of expressing my stories."

"We had the opportunity to work with numerous notable clients, such as Microsoft, Honda, NVIDIA, Asus, Tefal, F&N, Nestlé, Shopee, Maybank, and Hong Kong International Airport. We wish to work with more clients to blend our work with their brands and are now open to more licensing projects. It is every artist's dream to have such collaboration opportunities.

We also plan to publish more books in the future, probably with other IPs such as ChouChou and Kiddo Potato."

I would just like to say this for the record for relationships I've seen it's normally the other way around
