About the guest:
Stanley Chow was born and raised in Manchester, England, where he currently resides. He began his career in 1997 as a fashion illustrator and storyboard artist and has since become one of the most highly respected and established artists in the U.K. He works with various media in the advertising, design, publishing, packaging, gaming, animation, and interactive spheres. Most notably, Chow was nominated for a Grammy Award for his design work with the White Stripes in 2008.
