Must someone be the leader or boss in order for a creative team to function well?
Yes and no. Yes there should be someone who settles the final decision but not someone who says "DO AS I SAY" without considering other people's ideas. Team work is always challenging but with the right leader -NOT BOSS -the team would flourish.
What do you do? How do you define yourself as an artist?
I don't have a forte in anything just that I'm open to ideas and different point of view/beliefs whether right or wrong. Possibilities- anything can happen...is how I go by with my creativity as an artist.
What is your message?
Be yourself, though its hard when society makes the environment around you judge who you are but keep up your individuality like there's no tomorrow. It would be what makes you strong.
Your biography in four lines.
I'm just an ordinary person. My life is tough but I'm not alone. Telling you all about me would spoil the fun. I keep secrets.
Do you upload your work to the web? If so, where could we see it?
I do, though I have not been able to work on anything during these past few months but see if you could find me on Deviant Art
How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
Songs, moments in life, books..etc, anything depressing seems to be the point of inspiration for me~ the point of sanity and insanity in everyday life is what inspires me the most. What is right and what is not makes me think and then I would want to try and draw it out~ express it somehow.
What role does technology play in your creative process?
Right back at you.
What is art?
How do you evaluate whether an idea is good or not?
There is no good or bad. More like good, less good...OF COURSE there are the not so great ideas but they may not be bad. Depend on how and which perspective you are seeing it from.
When and how did you begin to see yourself as an artist?
When I got asked if I'd like to do an interview on here... I mean.. I see everyone else as an artist in something not just me.
Why do so many artists and creators have such volatile personalities?
hahaha and you're asking me~
How should a work of art be evaluated?
By the amount of effort and determination put into it- to express it.
What do you think about public funding for the arts?
It's not a bad idea
Is art necessary?
If it wasn't then what's necessary in life? Not saying its has to be a part of life but more like art is everywhere, without it wouldn't everyone be the same with no differences?
Is a work of art purchased, or is it better said, that it is the artist who is bought?
The word purchased is quite DEAD-like. It would be more like "the artist who is bought" because the art work came from the author, it came from its mind thus it is like apart of them....at least that's my opinion. Either way works though~ it really depends on how much imagination you have in you to say what is what really.
In art, there is no guide. How do you know what the next step is?
You don't. Just do whatever you want. Follow your instinct? Go with the flow? Like if your hand slipped cause it was tired and made a line on the paper...well that's a start. Drop your pencil and it makes a dot- that was your next step, now what would u like to try next? Get what I'm saying??
How do you feel about the fact that the pieces exhibited in contemporary art museums are often of artists already deceased?
"A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin"- The Band Perry. That pretty much sums up everything.
What advice would you give to those just beginning?
Open your mind. If you feel brain dead well take a pencil and draw a line then draw another scribble? Make a mess on the piece of paper and see where it takes you. Eventually you'll get inspired. But you've got to be patient
Which actor would you like to be?
Helena Bonham Carter
In moments of tension, what techniques work in calming the mind?
MUSIC! deep breath, reboot my brain or go outside in the rain without an umbrella.
Please list something you have not yet done, but that you would definitely like to do someday.
To really help someone. Do something good something they won't be able to repay me and see that it had really helped them- that is repayment enough.
Which animal do you prefer for company?
