About the artistArt curated by
Tell us the background of this design. "I wanted to do something symmetrical, that looks like it belongs on an old fictional temple wall. Can't go wrong with big fangs and pissed off eagles."
Age/Sex/Location-How long have you been an artist? What kind of artists are you? 31, Female, Chicago- I have been making art since i was a kid. I guess I’m a "try everything" artist. I like to use all kinds of materials and make all different kinds of things. Clothing, armor, costumes, sculptures, plush, jewelry, graphic design, tattoo design, animation, digital, traditional, etc. I get bored doing just one or two things.
Where do you find inspiration? Nature, mostly. Old cultures, cartoons. I guess anywhere, really. A certain color or even a song might inspire me. Artists that are a million times better than me...
Paper or plastic? Plastic toys. I mean, action figures...
XBOX, Playstation or Wii? HAAAA, all of the above! Though right now I'm loving Windwaker on my old Gamecube.
What do you love more than anything in the world? Wow, that's intense. Living in a quiet house with someone I love. Also, cockatoos.
What do you hate more than anything in the world? Arrogant little douchebags with no talent
Most overused word in the English Language? "Like"
Most annoying celebrity and why? I can't really pick out one. I guess the ones from reality TV that never really did anything worth while but somehow become celebs and start getting acting roles and "careers".
Favorite band and why? Aw man, my all time favorite band is The Aquabats. I'm really into metal right now which is the total opposite of them but I will never stop loving those guys. Their music makes me so happy and they are nice people!
What do you do when you're not creating art? Video games, sleep, eat, clean the house, drink with friends. Sometimes I honestly don't know what to do with myself if im not making art.

Anything you would like to say to the internet? I was going to write some smartass reply about how the internet is both awesome and very very horrible but I'm just going to say: I love you, intarwebs. Even through the bad times.
