On Art in General
The way I see it is art is 20% art, 80% self-promotion. I find that my best work is in making humor out of my own odd moments. Something I’ve learned in my studies of Japanese anime and manga artists is how to obscure life. I find that jokes can grow old unless they are humiliating to others. Those kinds of jokes are often the ones people remember. I make myself the butt of these jokes in my strips and artwork, causing people to laugh and enjoy themselves, which is basically the whole idea behind my work. What use is a piece of art if the only people who will enjoy it are forced to look at it stuck on a wall of some museum somewhere?
In the Future I want my work to be out in the public, destroying the minds of our youth. If animation is bad, then call me Mr. Mephistopheles. My true intentions are merely to get known and to be known as an artist, but I don’t think I’ll be putting up pictures of Mother Mary using porno cutouts and elephant dung.
Statement on her own work
At the age of 10 many doctors told me that I had mental problems that caused me to never really be able to show or under stand creativity. With every picture I draw, every word I type, I couldn’t help but hear those words haunt me. You see to me art isn’t just a thing I do as a living or pass time to me it’s to prove who I am to these people. It’s to be able to explain that despite what tests and charts say about me that I am a creative being.
As time progressed I took the concept and used it to my advantage, forcing myself to learn new techniques and styles. Creating my work with a mind of imaginative thought. I use the same concept when others tell me that they aren’t good at art or writing. I tell them that everyone can create it’s just a matter of how we release our creative energy that makes us who we are.
Thus you may ask why I do what I do. I do it to give me self worth. An Identity, a purpose, I do it because I am part of that which I create.
