Do you only work traditional or bother digital and traditional? and do you have a DA?
I consciously try and keep my body of work 50/50 digital and traditional!Let me preface this by saying I by no means think one form is greater than the other, but I also really encourage people to at least try and dabble in both ways! (but if I had to choose a personal favorite, it would probably be traditional. I just love painting.)
And yeah, I technically *do* have a DA, but I took down all but 3 pieces (all of which are on my tumblr here) from my gallery and it hasn’t been touched in years.
What are your favorite things to draw? Oh, oh, and what are your Major Influences (ooo big words)
I really like drawing critters and masks and ladies in “ugly” frumpy sweaters! I also really enjoy getting lost noodling out intricate patterns and ways to emulate texture in sketchbooks. I think it’s a fun challenge to see how far you can go making a pattern or texture with just a single pencil.
And in terms of influences, my biggest is probably the work of Stacey Rozich. I am also hugely inspiried/influenced by mid-century design as a whole, (lots of love to Whorange!) especiallyAlexander Girard’s body of work.
