The Short Interview
Interviewer: Please introduction yourself Mr.Fuhrer.
David Fuhrer: Hey thanks, no problem. I was born and raised in Switzerland and still remain there in the Basel. I started around 2004 with abstract 3d art. I always wanted to use my computer for work since we got our first computer back in 1989. An MSX with Basic on it from Microsoft. My Brother and I had this Game Maze of Galious and it basically got me where I am now. I did create my own assets with cardboard’s and paper once the MSX broke. Drawing little Monsters, Items and Characters etc. In my youth when we finally got a pc again I started to try out create my own game. I soon learned that I most love to create the graphics, so that’s where I got stuck.

Interviewer: What do you think you big breaking moment was in your career?
David Fuhrer: I don’t really know. I’m happy I created some Illustration which seem to have spread over the Internet. Otherwise I hope my big breakthrough will still come one day.

Interviewer: How do you promote your work?
David Fuhrer: I just upload them to Deviant and Behance and maybe post them on my Facebook and twitter nowadays. But otherwise I don’t really make any promotion. I wish I had more time or maybe could be less lazy and promote my work better.

Interviewer: Thank you for the very short interview.
David Fuhrer: Thank you for having me.
