9: Favourite Thing to Draw?
I answered this question but since I like drawing different things I shall answer it again!!
One thing I really love drawing is monsters. For some reason they all tend to be very two-dimensional and shadowy in nature. But I can draw other random monsters too. I tend to go absolutely nuts when it comes to using sharpie or black ink pens. I just wish to fill the entire page.
Oh, and wall paper. For some reason when it comes to drawing interiors I get excited at the prospect of drawing/colouring wallpaper.
10: Least favorite thing to draw?
Shoes. I cannot draw shoes. I try but I much prefer drawing feet (it’s the hobbit in me. My feet can’t be contained, and therefore shoes elude me even in art!!)
Umm. Yeah that’s a big one right there. Would love to draw shoes but it is always tricky.
I also will not draw guns. They bother me. I might attempt to draw a historic gun if I must but otherwise, no thank you.
1: Take A Picture of Your Work Place
OH NO THE ONE QUESTION I HOPED NO ONE WOULD ASK.
In my pitiful defence, it’s the evening and that’s why the cake is there. Everything else…pretty accurate. It’s organized chaos. Totally.
8: Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?
I do indeed!! I find that it helps me focus when I draw. As to what I listen to, it all depends on what I feel like drawing. Favourites I find would have to be: “The Dolls of New Albion: A Steampunk Opera” the entire show’s music. Just, all of it. If you haven’t listened to it before. Do it now. I shall send you a link if necessary. Also! I am rather fond of Florence and the Machine, classical/instrumental music, a bit of Rock or Metal or Alternative Music… basically anything that catches my attention! I love music that makes me think of emotion, or stories.
9: Favorite thing to draw?
That’s a tricky one!! I’d have to say one of my favourite things to draw would have to be trees!! Trees and toadstools. Absolutely love drawing those sorts of things. Tell me to draw a tree and I’ll be all “Hell yeah let’s draw trees”
I like trees. It may be because I grew up camping and in a neighbourhood with lots of big old trees. Maybe.
12: Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?
Making random sound effects while drawing. Mumbling half thoughts. Starting to make the faces of expressions I’m trying to draw. I tend to have more random moments where I am ‘caught’ or completely taken over by a thought while doing something outside of drawing or writing. This causes me to either pace about, or completely freeze and just stand/ sit there while completely absorbed in thought. This mostly happens when I’m in a home space though. When in public you know I’m lost in thought when I start walking faster than usual.
