A pile of inquiries! Here are some answers!
theskyisempty: Your work is so unique and inspiring! This might be mentioned somewhere in your tumblr, but I did not see it: Do you have a facebook fan page for your work?
Thank you, and no, I am not on the Facebooks.
andannie: Hi I love your art! I was wondering, what do you paint on? To keep the paper from wrinkling? Mat board?
(If I had a dollar for every time I answered this question I could finally quit my day job.) I use these.
ambedoshoulders: could you possibly explain some of your watercoulor/inking techniques to an amateur? im starting on both mediums and admire your work often.
This post has links to time lapses of me painting as well as a quick description of my technique. I learned everything I know by playing around with paints and inks on my own. Learning from accidents can be a way to develop technique, and I hope you’ll do some experimentation on your own in addition to implementing the tips that I provide.
pookielandia: Your an amazing artist. I truly am fascinated by your work. How long have you been painting?
For a long time. I’ve been watercoloring for around 10-ish years, but I’ve always enjoyed drawing.
subhum4n: I used to be extremely creative, and I could draw every hour of every day and come up with something different every time. Now its like, I start to draw or paint and I absolutely hate it. It sucks and I feel like im losing my favorite hobbies and talents. What do i do ):
Aw, don’t be sad! These things pass. I often go through phases of high productivity followed by dry spells. When this happens, I accept the fact that I need a break and I put down my pens and brushes for a bit. Then I take the opportunity to experience new things. I’ll try to spend more time outside, read books I’ve been meaning to read, look at art by other people, watch movies. Sometimes collaborating with other people helps give my creativity a nudge. What often happens is that when I stop stressing about artist block is when I stop having artist block. Worrying about it too much will only stifle you. Answers and inspiration often come when you stop looking for them.
barbaric-wasteland: i envy you
It’s my curly hair, isn’t it? I bet it is.
