Six Zebra Deaths
About the artistArt curated by
Tell us the background of this design.
I was tired of making shirts with just straight forward animals plastered on them, so I decided to start killing them in various ways.
Age/Sex/Location-How long have you been an artist? What kind of artists are you?
Right now I am a 19 year old lady, living in Boston. I've always drawn since I was little, but was always thrown off from whatever age by being referred to as an "artist," I'm still getting used to the term if it even applies. I will pretty much use whatever medium is available to me, though my artistic adolesence was/is rooted in fine arts, 2B pencils, drawing naked ladies/dudes and oil paints. But within the span of my life I'd like to do everything, not just traditional/digital/2D art, but film, music, anything and everything.
Where do you find inspiration?
Well, with all the animal stuff, I think it's pretty self explanatory that when I was little I was a huge nerd who could've made forts out of the amounts of National Geographic I had stacked around the house, and yes, went to zoo camp. Zoo camp.
Besides that, I rarely have something really planned when I start it, most things come from me on a whim... which probably means I never really question where inspiration comes from.
What do you love more than anything in the world?
Good art, good food, good drink, and good friends to share it with.
What do you do when you're not creating art?
If I'm not getting angry at myself for feeling like I should be more productive, mostly just being silly and young, running around cities and feeling pretty okay with that.
What are your dreams, hope, aspirations?
Like I said before, I'd like to try out pretty much every form of creation available, and be successful at at least a few of them. I think running my own business would be pretty gnarly.
Anything you would like to promote or say to the public?
You should... buy this shirt right here, public. Send your kids to zoo camp.
