"Just add more SPINS." – Duysus

SHIVRAJ: How did you get into cardistry or where did you see it first?

DUY: I got to know about it from my guitar teacher Nguyễn Thượng Hiển. He showed me some cardistry for the first time.

SHIVRAJ: How would you define 'cardistry' in your own words?

DUY: Everything that you can do with a deck of cards except magic.

SHIVRAJ: Who/What inspires you the most and why?

DUY: Dan & Dave inspired me a lot. From the day I started cardistry, I used to learn everything from them. Lately, I'm inspired by Gaolock, he makes everything possible that I thought couldn't be. Also music inspires me a lot for creating isolations.

SHIVRAJ: What is your creative process of making moves?

DUY: I just try to come up with a new concept first that no one has done before and use it to create a move.

SHIVRAJ: How do you overcome a 'Creative Block'?

DUY: Smoke Weed.

SHIVRAJ: How do you think you can help in improving the field of cardistry?

DUY: I think I can inspire other cardists and be something they would want to achieve. I'm the CCC 2016 Champion.

SHIVRAJ: What is your favourite move by you or by someone else? What do you like about it?
