I have been very fortunate to be able to get into many interesting theater, and film projects in the U.S. and Hong Kong, despite having a day job that is quite unrelated to the industry. One of the recent projects I’m in is EVE. My character is a cyber-punk street fighter that has some superhero power. We are still ironing the details as to exactly what we want it to be. An industry contact came to me and suggested turning it into a comic book character and then a superhero movie.
Some of my vegan friends have asked if this is a vegan superhero kind of character. I didn’t think of it until they mentioned it. The “V” sign is indeed very “vegan”…that’s how we recognize each other online mostly. The graphic designer didn’t do it on purpose, but this accidental art piece has just given me some new ideas. Perhaps the vegan and vegetarian community can give me some suggestions as to how we should sculpt this character. I would love to be able to combine my passion for both art and veganism into one. Hope the investors and bankers will say yes to this one.
Whether EVE can be a vegan superhero depends on the support out there, especially from the vegan and vegetarian community. Keeping my fingers crossed.
