How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I think I’ve been an artist since 6th grade? That’s around the time i started taking art more seriously.

My specialty is drawing cute anime girls or making cute characters since those are the most fun for me.

And where i find inspiration is usually the artist i follow on instagram or shows/anime i enjoy very much, its quiet hard to pick exactly where

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?

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
Probably having the close friends i have now!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
f I’m honest im not quiet sure but hopefully alive and with a better control and hold of art and depression!

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Probably Arin and Dan from Gamgrumps?

How is one way you make money with your art?
Commissions is one way!

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I’m unsure since without friends or someone I’m close to, travel is scary and stressful

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
My favorite brand is usually copics and micron markers and pens when drawing traditionally and on rare occasions the thin Muji pens i have!

Any advice for young artists?
If you do commissions or are thinking of becoming a self employed artist, please be sure to do research on taxes in your state and save at least 20% of what you get paid for!
