We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevin Won and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kevin, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I am the second son of three kids of Korean immigrants. I was born and raised in Houston, TX.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I think I was chosen to be an artist. I started late, and it was something I found at 25. I’m 29 now, but I don’t think that matters.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The best spots are where my close friends or family are. I usually trust my friends to find the cool stuff, and I just chill or go with the flow. If there’s a cool art exhibit in town, I’ll check it out. I hear Starbuck is pretty good.   

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to give a shoutout to those who follow me on my social platforms. Especially Twitch. I’ve started streaming recently, and its incredible that people want to spend time with me and watch me draw. It’s nuts!
