Most of the time we are not under the control of ourselves. Our mind is always attracted or distracted with something – our enemies, our lovers, our friends, just everything, hope, fear, jealousy, pride, attachment, aggression, all of this. So, in other words, It’s the objects, the phenomena, the world, which control our mind; we have no control over it. Maybe we can control it a little bit, for a split second; but if you are in an extreme emotional state, you’ll lose it. — Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

I met Dan Feit’s illustration on his Facebook page few weeks ago. From his work I could feel the atmosphere of mischievousness, childlike innocence, fun and happiness, which gave me another feeling that Dan should be an interesting and positive person. So I spent quite a while to find him, and asked him if he would be willing to do a little interview with me, to give me a chance to ask him some questions, know more about himself and learn more from him.
Dan is a very nice guy. He quickly replied to me with sincerity. During the interview, I found that he is from Lincolnshire in East Anglia. He studied Fine Art at Falmouth and Universidad de europea de Madrid. Also he studied Fine Art, illustration and sculpture at Cambridge arts and sciences. Coincidentally I used to study at the same college as he did. We are actually alumni!
ps: a big thank you to lovely lady Mi Gerer who introduced Dan Feit to me!

C: What inspires you to illustrate?
D: What inspires me is really outsider art, I love the museum of everything exhibitions that are popping up around London.
C: As I really like your way of illustrating over photographs, I am wondering how did you come into being this expression?
D: The way I found that illustration over photographs really happened accidentally when I was experimenting in my sketch book.
C: How would you describe your illustration style and what materials are necessary for your illustrations?
D: I think of my work as experimental and I am always changing materials at the moment for this illustration all I need are fine line pens watercolour and a scanner.
C: What are your future plans? Are you working on any particular projects right now?
D: At the moment I am collaborating with an photographer in Norway for a sunglasses advert and some private commissions if people who want portraits making. Also I have started designing iPhone and iPod covers and cases which are being sold on society 6 website. Also I am in the process on making an animation of the work. For future plans I would like to translate my work into fabric in the next coming year and I am open to more collaborations.
C: Where can we find, follow and buy your work?
I have a tumblr blog where you can follow my work and if you want to contact me directly my email address is email@example.com.

such a good question and consideration to Chinese designers and Chinese fashion industry..
‘In the current Chinese generation, awaiting for the stroke of genius from one of the emerging fashion designers, no signs of radical changes are perceived. For most of them the Western style, a bit sexy, a bit minimal, a little baroque and a little decorative is the example to follow. A little of everything without making an individual choice. ’

人生中唯一不变的，就是什么都在变。位高权重的，突然会一落千丈；生死相许的，竟然会势同水火；合家欢聚的，终究会曲终人散；寿比南山的，迟早会撒手人寰。所以，一切的美好都难逃变化，变化就会带来痛苦，这即是佛陀给我们揭示的“无常皆苦”。 —- 索达吉堪布
The only constant in life is the fact of everything is changing. For example, some one who had high position of power suddenly become plummeted; couples which used to give promise to each other of love till death but actually become opposite; families which used to gather together, after happy hours they left each other in the end; people who have long life, but they have to face to death sooner or later. As a result, all the good things cannot escape changes. However, changes can bring more pains, which represents what Buddha revealed to us: ‘All impermanence is painful’. —- Suo Daji Khenpo
