Art is a lie that makes us realize truth . . .The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. - Pablo Picasso
A word with ME
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
I'm on a midnight train going anywhere
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
Copious amounts of frustration sprinkled with self-loathing, mostly. Which is to say, I've been practicing hard things. Hands, feet. Ice cubes. Glasses of liquids. I've also been drawing from life, learning relationships. That stuff, as always
Where does your motivation come from?
Only the intense fear of what happens if I do not do the thing in question.
What are some of your favorite artists and genres?
I've always been more of a realist, but that was problematic because I feel there's less you can do to make artistic statements with it. My solution: surrealism. Love it. Magritte surrealism. Favorite Artists include Escher, Kuczynski, & myself ;)
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
Lemony Snicket, Trenton Lee Stewert, Harper Lee, Ray Bradbury, The Ender Series, to name a few, but there are so, so many more that I would die before I could name them all.
What do you listen to?
NPR, slightly alternative music, and this strange podcast called Welcome to Night Vale.
