How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
it s been 3 years now since I started art my specialty is Anime and Manga art and some paint on canvases I find inspiration in colors, and some grear artists on Instagram, colorful works give me motivation to get up and make my own pieces. In addition to great manga artists their works inspire me so much for example Hiromu Arakawa is one of my favorites

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 basically just getting commissions and selling paintings but my dream job is to join a Manga editing house or better draw and write manga and become an aspiring mangaka, this is a dream job: inspiring people!

Do you have a favorite Artist?
I am the type of people to never have one fav artist
They are just too many
Hiromu Arakawa
Studio Clamp
Ig artists: Minmonsta, reyhansartwork, lordgris, stumite..
i dont know if i wrote their unames right but their accounts are really known

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
Well there’s one art related accomplishment, it was just this year on July 1 2018, i participated in the Otaku Con 2018 and had a booth there. Mostly everything i presented sold and i got to meet a lot of young people asking me for tips and advice and sometimes they just wanted to chat with me. This means the world to an artist and it was so precious.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
Best question I guess hmm in 5 years I see myself finishing my masters degree in Organic Chemistry and Selling my first Artbook. In 10 years, married to my bestfriend and I am blessed to have an amazing guy like him in my life right now. Finishing my Phd and teaching at College. And maybe by that time I would probably be a mangaka selling my own manga and growing in the field
in 20 years, raising a healthy family and taking care of my parents to the fullest since financially I will be able to make them quit working and rest because they deserve resting after giving us the world.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Well as far as i can sum this up i would like to talk to every artist that inspired me to never give up on my art journey.

And as for dead people i really want to talk to my late Grandfather, I couldn’t show him the achievements i made this year and as much as we pretend to let go, there s always some pain from losing a dear person to your heart

How is one way you make money with your art?
Taking requests and Commissions i guess it’s my most used way to make money, and the money goes right away to buy art supplies!!

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I would literally go to Japan. This country is where everything started about anime and manga and my art journey started with liking this field and wanting to draw the character on papers not just seeing them streaming on tv or online.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
hmmm well pencils may i say Faber Castel and Prisma Colors for markers Copic and Touch, i like the smooth effect these markers give and especially with Pastel colors for watercolors and ink bottles Windsor and Newton, the vibrant colors and texture of their products are just everything for an artist and for the paper i usually use a Canson drawing pad but soon enough i will be trying more brands

Any advice for young artists?
Keep practicing!! and never give up on your dream of growing as an inspiring artist

Too many great artists? it s their time to shine, if you don’t give up you will have your time to shine and maybe your light will be more vibrant and you would shine more than anyone. Just keep going.
