Who are you and what do you do? 

Hello world, my name’s Rayo Denanda and I prefer to introduce my self as GODZILLARGE, I draw stuff for a living and go to the party on Friday night

What got you started in creating art? 

I’m not sure why I choose this as my career, as I remember this is my passion and just follow my dream to be an artist

How did you develop your style? 

I’ve got a lot of inspiration from tattoo art especially from the Maori and Polynesian cultures. Nothing special, just keep practice and consistent. Practice makes perfect, right?

Who inspires you as an artist? 

Mike Giant, HR Giger, Paul Booth and a lot of tattoo artists

What has been one piece that's been the most rewarding to work on? 

I always enjoy working on a t-shirt design, even for a local brand. I started my career as t-shirt designer and I always want to be one. When you see people wear your piece and feel proud and happy, there’s such a great feeling to me.

What has been one of your more difficult pieces to create? 

There’s nothing difficult actually, I’m just lazy LOL. Staring for hours create details sometimes really boring and I deal with this for years, but what can I do?
