How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I’ve been an artist since I was a little boy in elementary school.My specialty would have to be anime/cartoon. It’s what I grew up on and how I started of course. My inspiration comes from many things like looking at other people’s artwork, watching anime, and even looking at my own work. That really keeps me going.

Any advice for young artists?
My advice would be to always bet on yourself! Never give up on your dreams no matter how impossible it may seem. Don’t ever put a limit on your dreams! Always stay inspired/motivated, use whatever motivates/inspires you to keep going! Be patient and put the work in every day, so you can get to where you need to be with your art. Don’t ever be afraid to try anything! Always try! Always invent new ways to improve your art! Practice makes perfect!
