Richmond Chaisiri is a lifelong lover of art in all forms. He spent his Childhood between the US, Thailand and Taiwan, voraciously devouring a steady diet of games comics and movies from all over the world. Richmond is pretty artsy fartsy to the point where he’s participated in live poetry readings and freaky performance art pieces, but really his favorite things in the world are comics, video games and animation (and old Buddhist art). Richmond has worked in various roles in the game industry since 2007. He was recently a lead animator and illustrator at Zynga where he designed the avatar system for Chefville and got to paint food all day. It was awesome. Richmond currently resides in Berkeley where he makes mobile games (and Art-Eater posts) with his brother Andy.

    Hey Richmond I just read your posts on Asura’s Wrath, Darkstalkers and KOF, I was really impressed by the indepth coverage you had on these topics. I proceeded to share them with my staff (translating to Chinese was a lot easier with all your pictures). They agreed it was a fun and “educational” read as well. However I wanted to contact you for some advice on this new project I’m involved in. Facebook and Twitter are not an option to me since you may have guessed I’m in China at the moment. :( The firewall literally blocks all “freedom of speech” websites. Luckily not Art-Eater. In short I was looking for some opinions based on a game we’re working on right now (it’s based on a very old Hong Kong comic called Dragon Tiger Gate). If you are interested in exchanging a few ideas please contact me! If not than I guess this comment will only serve to tell you that you are doing awesome work, you have awesome and agreeable opinion on your site and I wish you all the best in the future. Thanks!~
