I am inspired by many different artists.
Van Gogh for his bold graphic painting style.
Picasso for his eclectic mix and mastery of techniques and styles.
Jean Michel Basquiat for his speed, energy, brutality, and honesty in his unusual frenetic drawings.
Keith Haring for his playful cartoony shapes and forms that seem to take on life of its own, and for his love of life despite facing death at young age.
Kathe Kollwitz’s for her dark, graphic prints depicting the often overlooked commoners and championship for equality. And her courage and resilience through the tragedies and atrocities that haunted her life and bringing them to life through her art.
And there’s more, but right now I’m in brain freeze mode. I need a break…
Wow has it been 25 years?
it was back in ’91 when I first caught glimpse of that game in the local arcade. I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but back in the day I was a young, lonely, bratty, hot tempered tomboy that preferred to chase around boys and kick balls than play with Barbies or wonder what to wear to school. I also had my head deep in space, like it was never quite in tune with the real world; I still am but I’ve come a looong way am I’ve learned to channel my aggression and restlessness into drawing. Oh and video games also helped as well.
Or, at least, that’s what you might think of.
Have you seen this?
