How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I’ve started trying to draw something when I joined the ad school (2013), since I had Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator skills, joining the art direction jobs was easier. I’ve started creating for myself in 2015 when i’ve decided to open my eyes to see what I LOVE to do, I started with lettering because that time illustration was to complex for me but, studying layouts and stuff, illustration just came across. Today I love what I do and my art carry lots of skulls, pentagrams, inverted crosses, monsters, and pizza. I find inspiration where it is, in life, my cat Lola, my girlfriend, my friends, Satan (hahahaha kidin, or not).
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?
Yes I do, I have a creative studio with a partner and I also work alone as a freelancer. If there’s something I really hate about art industry is that “standard rules” when someone asks you for a work but he also says that it should be outside the box BUT NOT TOO MUCH, what I mean here is that I came to this world to explode that box in order to make me happy! OUTSTANDING WORK OR NOTHING!
Do you have a favorite Artist?
I have some references, like Jon Contino, Mary Kate Mcdevitt, Studio Miopia, etc. Favorite I think it’s James Victore.
What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
Be happy, as simple as it sounds, living day by day working on what I love with cool projects and seeing it come alive makes me very happy!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I see myself with more love from @kozmicaline, more hair, more cats, more work, and maybe a calm place next to the ocean <3
If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Of course James Victore
How is one way you make money with your art?
In the studio we have like 10 clients, we create social media content, campaigns, in every project we try to insert some handmade illustration stuff. Through freelance I just work with my “real kind of art” and I’m planing to create a workshop about it.
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I’d love to go to Australia because it’s on the other side of the earth, so far away from everything I know.
What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
I don’t have any favorite band when it’s about work, because the fun are in using what we have right here, right now.
Any advice for young artists?
HELL YES! “THERE ARE NO FUCKIN RULES AND IF THERE IS, THEY ARE SET BY AVERAGE PEOPLE” (James Victore) CREATE STUFF TODAY EVEN IF IT SUCKS!
