Here’s Part 2 of my conversation with Erik Svare of Viva La Mort. In the second half, we talk about our origin stories and how we got to where we are now.

We discuss the concepts of hanami, memento mori, and other themes in our art, as well as how to stay motivated while developing yourself as an artist.
