In this episode of Crowdfiners Podcast hosted by David Pluscauskas, Benny Lo, an artist working in the video games industry (Saints Row 2, 3, 4), shares his experiences on making his mini comic book series, "Demise" and what drives him to creating amazing art. As a new immigrant during the late 80's, Benny faced a culture shock but video games like the Street Fighter series, and comic books, such as the Storm Riders series gave him an escape.
