HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN CREATING?

 #Ive been doing art all my life in different forms.

HOW HAS ART OPENED DOORS FOR YOU?

#Ive become noterized for my art as of recent in 2015-2016 with peanuts gang illustrations.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT SELF EXPRESSION TODAY?

#Self expression has really taken over with social meda being such a major part of milennials lifestlyes. Self expression comes in so many different forms of, art and for that i just feel like its become the norm. Its important however to make sure that you're actually being expressive truly, and not showing a false expression to portray yourself as someone you arent.

WHAT MAKES YOUR ARTWORK UNIQUE?

#Because its made by me. Its cliche, but honestly, I'm doing art based off who I'm inspired by, and there's many differetn forms of the type of art I do and its popuar. Alot of people have copied the peanuts gang, but what makes it different is that its made by me, off my Iphone 7 with my finger.

WHY DO YOU MAKE ART?

#I make art because I get excited to make it. Its something that makes me happy when I'm sad, and its something I can focus on. And since I do majority of my art on my phone, I feel like im putting my phone to good use when Im on it making art.

WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST PET PEEVES WHEN IT COMES TO THE ARTWORLD?

#The fact that people will do something becasue someone esle is doing it already. It doesn't matter if they're doing the same thing, its how you're doing it. Theres nothing new under the sun, and as long as you aren't plagerizing or not giving credit when credit is due, or even coming together and collaborating, then you're asking to be frowned upon. Doubting your view art is also a pet peeve, and I tend to be a victim to this as well.

WHAT IS ONE WAY YOU WOULD CHANGE THE WORLD?
