INTERVIEW: ANDREAS VON BUDDENBROCK
What made you choose to come to Hong Kong for school?
That’s a good question actually. I was here (Hong Kong) last year with my friend for a week, and I really liked the city. I was looking for schools in Asia. SCAD was the first one I found and the best one I found. That’s why I applied for the school.
Do you plan to study at the Hong Kong campus for all four years or do you have plans to go the campuses in Georgia or France?
I may consider transferring for a quarter or something. It all depends on money. If I can I will graduate from here in less than three years from now. I might go to Savannah for a quarter or so. If I get temporarily bored of Hong Kong, I could go there just for fun.
What does illustration mean to you?

It’s when you are painting or drawing with something deeper in mind, maybe a message behind it and with more thought than just drawing for someone else. I mean, all of that is illustrating, but there are different aspects of it.
You’ve travelled a lot, right?
Yeah I have, mostly when I was younger, with my stepfather, because he was working a lot abroad. Me and my mom would follow him. That’s why I’ve been travelling.

No, I don’t like travelling. I like being in different places, but I don’t like the travelling, per say. Hate that.
