About the artist
This is our first collab together! Both of us wanted to do an Oswin design, and we decided to join forces. Please check out our facebook pages for more artwork.

Question: If you trapped on a desert island with 5 fantasy characters, who would you want?
Omega: Bender, Mary Jane Watson, Snake Plisken, Raoul Duke, and Animal.
Megan: Cast of Community - Pierce + Tenth doctor. That may be more than five, but I do not care. We'll just pretend that I was traveling with the Tenth Doctor in the tardis when Greendale's Glee club (well, substitute Glee Club) crashed into it, and we all landed happily on the island. Except for Pierce.
Question: Congratulations! You just found a time machine! You can go back and tell your 12 year-old self one thing, what is it?
Omega: I wouldn't say a thing. I'd just give him a high five, nod, and hop back into the Tardis.
Megan: Quit drawing anime; it's gonna take you forever to learn how to draw realistically if you keep drawing eyes like that! Also, your obsession with Team Rocket is creepy. Stop it.
Question: What kind of educational background do you have in art?
Omega: I went to the art institute of Phildelphia and obtained a breathtakingly useless degree in animation. (it's only useless because I didn't become an animator). But I did learn a lot.
Megan: I went to a community college for a couple years and have an AA in "art."
Questions: Who are some artists that have influenced your work?
Omega: Jeremy Fish, Robert Williams, Jared Knickerson, the guy who did the garbage pail kids art, Jae Lee, Mike Mignola, and lots of others.
Megan: Alphonse Mucha for sure. He's pretty much who you think of when you think of art nouveau. Also, Adam Hughes. He has such a beautiful style that is influenced by art nouveau sometimes, but it's all his own.
Question:What would you do for a career if your arms suddenly fell off?
Omega: Human cannonball! :D
Megan: A dippy bird.
Question: What programs do you do to create your designs?
Omega: Inkscape (a free version of Adobe Illustrator), and to a lesser extent, Photoshop. I think for this design I worked strictly in Inkscape and Megan worked in PS.
Megan: I use Photoshop only in all designs. I don't know the first thing about illustrator or any other program. I've been using it so long, I don't think I could ever switch!
