I love the creative freedom. I have a special way to express my emotions, my feelings, and no-one can say a thing, it’s my emotions, my freedom, my free speech, I get to connect with viewers on a powerful vision sense, and there’s no better feeling than telling your story through images you’ve created.
“Ipad is a game changer, a digital pad at a relatively cheap price (For a digital pad) You can hook your Ipad up to AI and draw vectors from a pen, it’s incredible. But I love using rigger brushes and thick cut brushes for bold black lines. I’m hell into japanese brushes now. Any brush that holds like a pencil is the go for me!?"
Keep practising, daily. I started by drawing skull heads, every single day, then arms, or a full piece, or the smallest straight lines for 30 minutes. Just so I can become comfortable with my abilities. And then you’ll find your style, a noticablke style, and then challenge the fuck out of yourself, give yourself briefs, 30 second drawings, everything to challenge yourself. Believe you are an artist also, tell yourself daily! I do, I have a reminder set daily.
“I want to start making sculptures, figurines of my character. That’s a 4 year goal, right now, the near future, I’m just looking at getting large murals.”
