2. How did you first get started creating for internet?
I started my skinning life from creating logon screen for XP, not even count as art but people like it so I continued. And then I turned to cursor and windows theme designs, guys like my works are still my motivation, and I think all things can be my inspiration, the sleekness of a cell phone shell, the smoothness of a leaf of just a stage in a TV show, when inspiration hits, you can't exactly tell where it comes from.
3. Do you remember your first upload? What year was that? Can you tell us about it? And where can we see it?
I played around Themexp.org for quite a long time when I firstly get into skinning. And my first submission there is a logon screen, technically, I just put a Homeworld 2 logo and other elements like button all got from the game into the logon screen.

I'm a loser boy sometimes, I used to like staying at home and sit in front of the PC. So years ago, I spent most of my spare time on skinning.
