What do you feel like when you aren’t painting or drawing?

Unproductive. Ha

Is your art just you being productive?

Yes and no. Depends on the project I suppose.. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do with every ounce of my being, but constantly being creative is hard work. Especially when it’s asked of you to push work out.

Sounds like it can be frustrating.

At times, yea. But I mean, I draw so much in my free time; I don’t know what to do when I’m not. Ha

How do you feel when you do draw?

It’s strange, it’s the only time that I don’t think. It’s like one of those “in the zone moments.”

That’s really neat- though it’s funny you mentioned thinking rather than feeling.


In the zone indicates kind of blank, focused, but doesn’t really tell what you’re feeling physically or emotionally, etc.

Hmmm.. Well, that’s the thing as well. Drawing and art itself is very emotionally driven and there’s days where I had a bad day because of a girl. And I can’t draw. Like physically can’t do it. So you have to be on the positive or neutral scale at all times. Ha

Ha. If you’re having a good day because of a girl are you more likely to draw or does it make you want to draw?

Probably more prone. The muse effect. And a muse is nice to have.
