1. Two truths and a lie about you, please
I love bacon.
Raw meat makes me uncomfortable.
I’ve killed a chicken before
2. Those wonderful graphite drawings almost look like photographs, how do you manage that?
I think it is just the way my brain works. If you told me to draw a loose sketch I would not be able to do it, it would look horrible. The only way I know how to draw is very specific and more like completing a puzzle than anything else but it makes it conducive to the type of work I’m making.
3. Where do you take scenes to draw from?
It is a huge mix and depends on what I am going for. I filter through a lot of images that I have saved and photos I’ve taken. Once I decide on an image it is usually a process of paring it down and removing a lot of extraneous parts or building an image up and piecing different things together to get the desired effect.
4. Best line from a song
No, not you…
You, the bow-legged one
5. Who should we interview next?
RTC! Ryan Travis Christian is an amazing artist/curator and a quality human being in general.
