Q. What artist inspires you the most and why?
A. The most….uhhh this is hard…..so many and for so many reasons.
Maybe Brian Froud because he not only does regular art, he makes awesome personality filled characters but he tells stories with his characters and builds world’s you want to visit. Many I have fallen in love with the movie the labyrinth and wished they could visit. His creatures designs amd world building are a large part of that success.
Q. What was your first published work?
A. My first published work… I used to draw a comic strip for my high school newspaper. But before that I had a drawing published in the town newspaper when I was in kindergarten. It was a horrible drawing of some clouds but i remember feeling especially proud haha.
Q. Which artist would you love to do a collaboration piece with?
A. I would love to do a collaboration piece with Ten Hun. I admire him so much as an artist and a fellow YouTuber. His murals are incredible! A collab with him would be an amazing opportunity.
