For more stories behind these creations, let's listen and draw a two-day studio for each MRT girl. (MRT benefits: A minute to change your life: Good ideas are overheard from the MRT compartment )
Raise your head, life is full of fun
Two days said: "In fact, all the pictures in the girl only I have seen!" 」。 Two days with Joe's creative way is very interesting, the first is two days will go to the MRT station to find inspiration, find the right object, but in the MRT so many girls, which is the best actress? Two days of the answer is: "Fate", this girl is not necessarily the appearance of beauty, also does not necessarily represent the characteristics of a station, but is definitely the present, so that two days the most interested girls, and then he began to use the brush faithfully as a recorder.
Then when teacher Joe saw two days of creation, he began to play the imagination to help the girl to add some background. This woman may be just off work, physically and mentally tired of the office workers; The girl is just dismissed, the community practice ended, carrying his high school girls, or found some boys do not understand the female fashion, such as a shoulder hollowed out blouse, or strong eye makeup. With exquisite observation and unlimited imagination, to give each MRT girl a different story! (Every woman is wonderful: woman, not only one way )
Two days said: "In fact, we are just very simple, to see the small things in life, the way to create, let everyone know, in fact, we can see the world!" 」
It is true that technology makes us more convenient, but changes fast and busy life, let us often forget to look at the world. Two days and teacher Joe Hope to tell you, in fact, as long as a change of perspective to see the world, life is not insipid, but everywhere full of surprises!
With illustrations, let people start to think
In fact, two days with Joe Teacher began operating fan group, the goal is only 5,000 people, did not think all the way, they have now been 80,000 fans love, two days secretly said: "A start to see the number of the time, of course, very happy!" But after the excitement disappears, it feels a bit more responsibility! 」。 This figure, on behalf of more people listening to their voices, has begun to have a little influence, so they want to make the most of the impact and bring about a change in society.
Two days said: "In our creations, we will not give you the final judgment or answer, because we do not want to influence people to make decisions, just want to influence people start thinking"
Although teacher Joe and two days of work is very humorous, but they think that they are not pure funny person. They are simply interacting with the public through these interesting works, replacing the intense means of communicating with people in another way. So in their creation, often just a head, let people start to care about something, and then we work together to create more powerful things, in the process, they both have achieved more sense of achievement! (Extended reading: change begins with care )
The depth of the superficial
Although has accumulated a certain popularity, but two days with teacher Joe is still focused on the creation, they think: " happiness is from the creation rather than money", through these works to communicate with more people, they are very satisfied!
Two days with teacher Joe has an artist character, for them the work must be first meaningful, will be created, so they create every theme, have a strong sense of mission, hope to convey some ideas, so Joe Teacher said their work is "deep shallow"

As they are serialized in the Mandarin daily "truth and Lies", MOM will say: "Parents do not care about the results, as long as you are healthy and happy," the heart of the OS is: "But the best score to win the family of other children! "And dad will say:" We are very open-minded, make a boyfriend remember to take home to parents to see ", behind the representative:" which child dare touch our home baby daughter is finished! " 」

These works let a person see a smile, but in fact, there is a lot of social subtext, hope to use graphics and text to establish a dialogue with middle school students, so that children can understand a little bit about the status of social operation, not because of all day immersed in the book, and the real world out of touch, other non-students see, You can also think about the meaning behind these phenomena. This is what they expect, hoping that they can become a "deep and superficial graphic illustrator."
Superficial is often regarded as a negative word, which represents a person who sees the superficial, but only looks at the surface, but two days with teacher Joe has reinterpreted the term. They think that superficial, but more accessible to the public, with rich content but no appreciation of the work, highbrow situation is very regrettable. So they choose to use the text and texts, aroused everyone's resonance and discussion, in the works cleverly hidden in the depth of life in the intelligence, so that everyone in the entertainment, but also can begin to learn more deeply to think, can in those we are accustomed to the small things, explore the precious life intelligence.

Two days with teacher Joe for their creations, always embrace a strong sense of mission. They talk about serious life issues in private, but try to present in a popular way, the goal is to make people more receptive, and then from their creation began to think, like Stephen Chow's film, after laughing, but also to live another layer of understanding.
