How did you get started in art?
Well, I’m not exactly sure how I got into art. I’ve always loved to draw, and my older brother and I would often “compete” with drawings for our parents when we were younger, so I suppose he helped. :p
Do you have any experience in traditional art?
Oh no. Haha. I’m terrible at trying to do realistic things, i’m more of a cartoonist of some sort.
Any formal art education?
Not really any education. I’m only a Sophomore in High School, so really only the elementary style art classes that have been required to take. I did enjoy them though, and had a couple of featured pieces in 7th and 8th grade.
A typical day for me is a lot of eating and sleeping. Not kidding. But I also get out to be with friends on weekends.
How do you get your creative juices flowing? What is your creative process?
Well, sometimes I see a movie (Wanna see a magic trick?) or something really silly happens (The burning question) and those inspire me. But I also just have a lot of things buzzing around in my head that I draw out on paper. Sometimes they end up other places (like DoInk!)
What has inspired you lately?
I haven’t had a whole lot of inspiration lately. Nothing terribly exciting has happened, but with the holidays approaching, who knows what could happen!
Do you have a favorite color?
I like really bright colors. Like orange. I’d say that’s my favorite color.
Do you get creative slumps and how do you get out of them?
Creative slumps are my forte. I get out of them usually by dumping an idea and working around a newer, simpler one until I get the spark I need.
Describe your work setting
Uhh, weeeellll……my “work” setting is the messy table I use for a desk in the corner of my bedroom. On it, you’ll find lots of paper and drawings, pencil shavings, colored pencils, books, paint canvas, money, scissors, tape and lots of useless junk (I really need to clean my room!)
Favorite cartoon and/or anime character?
I like Naruto. Laugh all you want, it’s an action packed laugh fest. With ninjas.
I have so many favorite foods. Live to eat, not eat to live. But I guess my FAVORITE food is cookies :D
Favorite television show?
I really like Scrubs. It’s so funny and awkward!
What made you join DoInk and what is your experience so far?
I found DoInk on Facebook. I thought “hmmm, I want to animate things. Let’s check this place out and see if it’s legit”. So I did. And it is.
Any advice for other DoInk users?
Do what you love, love what you do. Cliche, but it works.
