You'll see that Romo Jack (a.k.a @ponypork) was first featured on Studio teaching us all about the perfect flat lay. But we wanted to know more about the man attached to the hands. Whilst we might not get to see his face, we certainly enjoyed hearing about his career to date. Just take a look for yourself!

How did you get started?

I started making this series in early 2015, when I'd finished studying in China. I met a lot of great Instagrammers there and felt I could make something too - which became the #whatmyhandsdoing tag.

Where do you find inspiration?

Anywhere. Usually I love and appreciate those who do things with consistency in mind. Making art is an easy task as long as you have a will, but being consistent in particular is very challenging and could be difficult to keep up with. Too many distractions can interfere with consistency.

How do you decide what to share and what to keep private?

It depends. I share some of my idealist works and some digital works. I keep my offline artwork private.

Any tips and tricks?

There are no tips and tricks. I think what I do is just a simple photography technique. To create an image is not such a hard thing to do, I take pictures of daily activities, it's just a matter of how they are arranged.

What camera and editing software do you use?

Sony A7II and Photoshop.

How would you describe your aesthetics?

I actually don't know how to describe it. For me, I don't have any absolute rules in prop placement, something messy could draw more attention than neatly placed objects. Every scene and activity has its own atmosphere, I try different positions until I get the right mood. I believe every person has their own perspective.

What’s been your favourite piece of work to date?

As an Art Director, it's so fun when you're generating ideas to present to the client.

Best thing about being a creator?

Best thing is that I can go wild and represent what's in my imagination.

If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?

I found out that you don’t need to spend too much time imagining a concept that might lead nothing in the end, the most important thing is to take a look around and just do it!
