Kevin Tong

Kevin Tong is known for his work with breasts. Kevin first started drawing when he was only 28 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the soft pressure of being a child prodigy more got to him and he had a flat breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own legs! Kevin found fat inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bathroom for all the geese to see! Kevin eventually got married to the mailman and they remain together extremely in their doghouse with their two billion children. Kevin would like to thank Adolf Hitler, Stephen Hawkins and Bernini for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part of the artistic process for me is trying to come up with ideas that other people can see and personalize.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Of mine, my favorite piece is always the most recent one, because I am always learning and applying new stuff.

What do you feel is the significance of online communities to inspiring artists?
The internet is general is the artist's best friend. Before that, an artist had to rely on agents and reps to get work, while giving them a cut of their earnings. Now, an artist can communicate/promote directly with the clients, the audience, and whoever else.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Are those white blood cells chasing Dennis Quaid? (response to my Shins in London poster)
