Ray Young Chu

What do you do:
Graphic artist

Where do you work:
Through The Yummies, in Denver, Colorado

When did you realize your interest in art:
First grade, second grade. My dad got me into art with water colors and some oil painting classes. But, high school probably junior year, is when I said this is what I am going to study, this is what I am going to do for the rest of my life.

Why work in this industry:
You have your dream set up, you have your vision, and you just go for it. You don’t take no for an answer.   

How would you advise others:
I would say to artists, think of business as an art too. Same way he would concept a painting he would concept his business such as the timing of when you release one product to another product. So, always thinking of that and learning the tools necessary to run this business because it’s a whole business even if you are a single artist. How are you going to market yourself? Which activities are you going to get involved into?
