Hey I've been following you for a while (not literally) and I really like your art work! They're so unique and creative haha. I just wanted to ask you how did you come up with your style? Like did it come naturally and it was what felt most comfortable or was it something you had to work for? I especially like how you do hair:)
HMM. I think when you’re drawing all the time, you don’t see your progress until you take a step back to look at what you’ve done in the beginning of a year and the end. I think you have to work hard for it and it just becomes natural. Like, you can’t not work hard to make something that you like looking at you know? You work hard to make something that you are satisfied with and once you are there, it just comes so naturally to do it over and over again.
I'm still a little confused by your project. So even if someone is making a digital piece, they still have to mail it to you? Why do you/we have to print it out if you're just going to end up making a video?
There is going to be a collage at the end of the video and the physical pieces are going to go up on a wall.
So there are going to be a bunch of 3” by 3” pieces that create a whole piece.
sorry if this is a stupid question, but do we both submit to your project blog and mail it? :o and are we allowed multiple entries? also will we get to see the video? sorry for all the questions, and good luck on your project!
The project blog is to showcase all the artwork being drawn/sent in. The mailed pieces will be put in the music video as a part of a gigantic collage.
My professor is requiring us to post this video on Youtube :) So it will be up!
You're asking your followers to send you artwork at their expense (draw AND pay for postage) for your benefit (your assignment). All to be in a raffle? It's like.. paying & working to hopefully win. I feel like you could come up with a better system than that.
It’s true that this is for my benefit, for my assignment. But I can just as easily do all these drawings myself and have friends from school help me. I just thought it would be fun to incorporate art from all over the world. The raffle part is just to make it more fun for people, if they choose to join.
I know that mailing is expensive, especially for international shipping. And I’m not asking for intricate final pieces. Sketches/doodles are more than enough.
If you do not want to join in the fun, I won’t hold you back.
Hi, I want to participate in your drawing contest/music video thing, but I was wondering... What if I'm not able to print or mail it? Would there be a way to email you the image, like a digital piece or is that too much?
A question about your 3 by 3 project. I live in another country, I want to do it but I'm not sure if I can send my work by mail. Is there a way I could do it without sending it by mail?
I mean, you can send it internationally? But yeah that could cost some money. And color printing costs a lot of money at my school so I can’t print it unless your work is black and white. And color is preferred, so when I put all the pieces together, it pops!
- Yes it can be digital, as long as it prints in 3 inches by 3 inches!
- And as for writing, I will accept “type art” or some form of drawn typographic design.
- And no, I do not know Matthew Tso from Pratt lol
I have a dilemma. I don't know if it is the same everywhere but I want to study Photography, preferably at an Art School but the thing is I have little talent with other mediums in Visual Arts. I know I have to study other mediums along with Photography and need to create portfolio using different mediums. This is really discouraging for me and I'm beginning to doubt myself with my career choice. I could really use your opinion/advice.
I’m not sure if Photography majors have to put other visual mediums in their portfolio other than photos. But I’m telling you right now that studying other visual mediums aids a photographer! In terms of composing a piece and having an eye for color, it is really useful.
I think it’s safe to say that most people doubts their career choices. But don’t fret, because in life, we all have to make hard choices. And dealing with them is a part of life. I don’t know who you are and I certainly don’t know your art, but if you don’t have confidence in yourself, you will go far as long as you have confidence in your art. Work hard, because your efforts will not be in vain.
hello! when did you know you wanted to pursue art as a career and when did you start preparing for applying for art school?
I became serious towards the end of my junior year (that was also the time I discovered ink pens and played around with patterns). And I started preparing for applications the beginning of my Senior year. ^^
I wrote up this post because I missed my style development panel at FC due to food poisoning. I was honored to ask to do it in the first place, and it was a huge disappointment to me to have to miss it. The idea that I could be considered an authority on this in any way is…
