#001 in a series of Japanese Koi-maids. I've gotta get around to drawing up the rest of them...
have you been inspired by anime and japanese artwork? Any certain japanese artists you follow?
yes- i am a lubber of anime. plus, my mom was Buddhist. So a lot of Japanese cultural icons were introduced into my lil brain pretty early on.
It is obvious your a very gifted individual so if you don't mind me asking, what are the tough parts about doing what you do when creating your art? Do you have to be in a certain mood to come up with something very unique or does the creativity just come natural?
thank you kindly! hmm i'll say art is a lot like a language. you can gain more mastery of the language not just from fancy words or metaphors but from practice and also reading other masters. But, great phrases can come at anytime. Its knowing what you need in order to be comfortable to allow yourself to be a vessel for what already exists in the ether and it chooses YOU to create it. Each person has the potential to utilize their various abilities and seek innovation from various disciplines. I'm a musician, so most of my inspiration comes from things that swim in my mind while envisioning a tangible expression of sound. That and ancient cultures.
Going in the favs...wish I'd thought of it
Thanks ma'am! i'm plannin another one soon. I'm gonna sneak some friends in as merkoi ^__^
