This week we welcome Danica Brine to the CBFC Artist Spotlight!
Q. Where are you from?
A. I was born and raised and still reside in New Brunswick, Canada. It’s got natural wonder all around!
Q. How long you’ve been drawing?
A. I’ve been drawing for as long as I’ve been able to hold a pencil. In middle school, it became my main hobby, and I would doodle with some friends between classes. I remember being 13-14 and really started considering art as a career. I haven’t really stopped drawing or creating art since.
Q. What materials do you prefer to do your art with?
A. For the last several years, I’ve been sketching digitally on iPad Pro. I go traditional for finished pieces almost 100% of the time. My favorite mediums for work with are; inking pens, acrylic inks, gouache and watercolor paints on 100% cotton watercolor paper like Arches or Fabriano.
Q. Character you love to draw?
A. I like to draw so many different things, but if we’re talking characters, I love drawing X-Men. I get requested Rogue the most!
Q. Character that you want to draw that you haven’t drawn yet?
A. There are so many! Hmmm…Maybe Colossus? Painting all that metal looks challenging but fun.
Q. What artist inspires you the most and why?
A. I would like to think that a lot of my work represents an amalgamation of my artists whom I find greatly inspire me. There are too many to mention them all, but I particularly love works by Adam Hughes, Frank Cho, Yannick Paquette, Dan Mora, Bilquis Evely and many European artists as well.
Q. What was your first published work?
A. I drew a couple of short stories for indie comic anthologies in Canada and France way back over a decade ago now. I also drew covers for Doctor Who (Titan), Elephantmen (Image) and Wayward (Image). Most recently, I illustrated a full graphic novel called Chef’s Kiss (Oni Press).
Q. Which artist would you love to do a collaboration piece with?
A. I’m kind of a control freak. I don’t think I’d like to collaborate with another artist on a specific piece per se…Although, comic anthologies are always fun to work on with other artists.
