The island of O’ahu in Hawaii
How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
Not sure. I think in the range of 5256 days though.I enjoy making flat-design illustrations and photo composi ting I wouldn’t say I have a speciality yet though. I like to find inspiration from other artists and I don’t just mean illustrators and designers, but also filmmakers, actors, writers, photographers, meme creators, musicians, etc.
Do you have a job in the art industry? If So, what’s one thing you don’t like about it? If no, where would your dream job be?
I am currently a freelance graphic designer, but I have worked in the industry and I don’t like how repetitive the work is. My dream job is freelance illustrating.
Do you have a favorite Artist?
Nope. There are a lot of artists I admire though. You could be one of them!
What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
I’ve been cutting my own hair since I was 14. I’ve saved so much money!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I’ve never put too much stock into where I see myself in the far future because I know it will be completely different than what I imagined.
If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
It would have to be someone I’m comfortable with. First time meeting someone and we gotta have a conversation? “Uh nice shoes”…..”So how bout that weather?” Anxiety and awkwardness would take over.
How is one way you make money with your art?
I try to make some passive income with my brand Alucive Dream Division. ig: @alucive #shamelessplug
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I’ve always wanted to see the Aurora Borealis.
What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
Adobe has been a game changer for me.
Any advice for young artists?
If you don’t have your own style and are trying to find it look to some of your favorite artists. There is a reason you like their work. Take away something from each of them and try to use it in your own work. You might make something that you want to stick with.
