Today's Design : LUCKY SEVEN
Please tell us about this art.
This art pays homage to both Sailor Jerry style tattoos, and Tifa from Final Fantasy 7.
What inspired this work? What does the work represent?
This art was inspired mainly by a love of rockabilly style, tattoo design, vintage pin ups, and video games. I love to see well known characters and concepts re-imagined in to something new.
Anything your fans should particularly know to enjoy this art?
Not related to my art, but everyone should know that almost all cake recipes can be changed in to cookie recipes by changing the ratio of eggs, oil/butter, and sugar. It's baking science, delicious science!
Please tell us a little about you.
I'm a fiercely dorky coffee addict, and a crazy cat lady who will die alone.. except the part where I'm surrounded by cats.
Where do you live and what do you do?
I recently moved to the Baltimore area, and it's my first time living in a place with an actual art scene. It's fantastic! I do everything I can to be creative, draw, paint, illustrate. One job has me hand-make signs, and at another I have a graphic design internship. I'm all kinds of artsy fartsy.
Art- your passion, or living, or both?
Both! If I could find a way to effectively draw/create while walking/not sitting on my butt, I'd probably do it all day.
Please tell us about your most favorite shirt.
My favorite shirt is a gag gift from my sister. I love to embarrass her by dropping the "p" bomb (man bits!) whenever I can, so for revenge, she bought me a shirt that warns the world about giant man bits. Little did she expect I would wear it, around her, and often.
Your childhood dream? Favorite character?
When I was little, I dreamed of growing up to be a dragon-riding, warrior-princess illustrator AND oceanographer. They said I could be anything.. but they lied! I was greatly influenced by Xena growing up, and she's probably only trumped by Batman as one of my favorite characters of all time.
What do you do the best? The worst?
I think my culinary skills may beat my artistic ability, yet no matter how I try, my cooking always looks like dookie. Aside from making hideous yet delicious food, I'm the worst singer of all time. I could use my dying lama singing voice to smite my enemies, should I choose to be so cruel and unusual.
