Cheeming Boey is a malaysian animator/artist best known for his art on styrofoam cups. In order to best utilize his natural talents, he went to San Fransisco intially to study advertising and later switching over to computer animation. He believes and follows his dream of making a living as an artist, created an online blog with thousand of followers and completed a book about misadventures from his youth. Everything is just begin with one simple word DREAM…a dream that inspired him+you+I to follow our heart, imagination and created the future us. Boey once said “if you want to get something done, or if you have a dream…just go for it”. So, that what i’m trying to do right now. Do what i want to do…have a dream and just go for it.
To recall the history of how i admire this cool man, it just happened a few years ago when i “incidentally” bought his awesome piece of When I Was a Kid. Falling in love with every pages and every stories, then i decided to dig who is this awesome man. When i first seeing his art of styrofoam cups, the only thought i had was “super duper creative”. How can he even think to draw on the cup, and unexpectedly turning the rubbish into a piece of art. He just need a cup, pen and creativity. Is not it awesome?…that why i call him The Awesome Boey.
He may have had a few luck along the way, uses only simple materials and makes his achievements look easy. But his passion and willingness to follow his heart and dream really inspired me. In his path to the success, Boey had showed me how a coffee cup, a thing that we just treat as a rubbish turning to an unexpected art and inspired not just fellow artists , but anyone with a dream. Is not it amazing to inspire people? for me i want to be one of them. Being inspired, Being respected.
