Hey ! Hope you're fine ! I wondered if you were looking for a particular style of art concerning the collaboration thing ! :) Have a nice day ! :D

I’m not looking for anything in particular at all, just anyone whose work interests and inspires me to collaborate, so feel free to send me an email if you were considering it. As I mentioned, writers, photographers and any type of visual artist are all welcome to get in touch. However, I am especially hoping to find a writer who can compose short written statements, think Jenny Holzer, Robert Montgomery, Tracey Emin, ect.

I love your artwork, it's pure beauty! I took a very high level art class for drawing about a year ago because it was recommended by my art teacher. The class completely terrified me, I felt like I was the weakest in the class and every time I tried to draw I would get so frustrated because it wouldn't come out right. I haven't even picked up a drawing pencil or touched my sketch book since December. So, basically, I admire you and your work so much! Love ya xx

Thank you so much, that’s so kind! It blows that that class was such a negative experience for you, when making art is such a positive thing. I think at some point we all struggle with comparing our work to the work of others, it can be really crippling though, as I’m sure you know.

I hope you start to create again soon and get back to that sketch book. My sketchbooks are all private, which I think really helps as they can be intimidating little (or big) things when they’re new and I write little notes in them too, they’re a total mess. If art makes you happy, let that be enough, you don’t need to be so hard on yourself (I’ve had to work on that too). Creating for the sake of creating is not a bad thing and try to remember that you’re the only one who can make art like you. Totally cheering you on and I wish you weren’t anon!

Hi I see a lot of great artists on tumblr use an intuos4. I am looking to upgrade my bamboo and am wondering if I should purchase an intuos pro or an intuos4. What are your thoughts on the intuos4 and if you would rather a pro or 4? or 5?

I’m very happy with my Intuos4, I wouldn’t upgrade it unless it was to a Cintiq (which isn’t even the same thing) or unless it broke beyond reasonable repair. I don’t ever use any of the extra features, so what I looked at when comparing tablets was really the more technical spec, like pen pressure, tilt, resolution and pen accuracy, which are all exactly the same in the 4, 5 and I’m pretty sure they’re the same for the pro, too. So, that just left me to pick the one that was cheapest, but it’s personal preference.

As someone who makes realism how do you feel about abstract art?

I love abstract art, it has helped me to appreciate and foster an understanding of things like form, composition and colour, so it’s important to me. A lot of my favourite artists are abstract or conceptual, I don’t really think there’s any type of art that I’d be able to say I entirely dislike. After saying some nice things about my work, someone recently said to me that they never really like digital art. This was an abrupt reminder that there are people who comfortable with writing off entire types of art, which to a certain extent I get, but it’s just really weird to me.

Howd you start this digital painting thing? Like did you buy a certain software or? Your works amazing btw!

I used to colour comic book panels (I love comic books) and also wanted a tablet for graphic design, so I got one for that and then I ended up using it to paint with. So, that’s how I started. I’ve always used photoshop and my first tablet was a Wacom bamboo, but I now use an Intuos4. Thank you!
