I woke up this morning with a conundrum: Should I feature Stanley Lau in the latest NSFW Gamer’s Artist Spotlight article or someone less known?
Just because Stanley Lau is a fairly famous illustrator does that mean he shouldn’t be featured? Should this category be reserved for lesser known artists thus giving them some much needed visibility? Does anyone even care what I have to say or are they just looking at the pictures?
These are the things that went through my head before I said ‘fuck it, I love Stanley Lau’s art and that’s that.’
Ultimately I try to let the art speak for itself. Who am I to judge what artist is deserving of the Artist Spotlight? It’s not like I followed Stanley Lau’s career starting with his very first drawing. I didn’t know who he was until I discovered him for myself – granted that was a couple years ago but you get the point.
Think about it, there will be at least one person today that reads this that didn’t know who Stanley Lau was and that person’s mind is about to be blown when they scroll down. For the rest of us it’s just confirmation of what we already know to be true: Stanley Lau is fucking awesome!
