For making art I use Adobe Photoshop CS6 and If needed Adobe Illustrator CS6. For animations I use Adobe Flash CC 2015. The tablet I use is a Cintiq 22HDT (21.5-inch, 1920 x 1080) connected to an iMac (27-inch, Late 2012) with a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 28 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 512 MB graphics.
For making my videos/podcasts I record with GLX2200BP Microphone with pop filter connected to a Behringer Xenyx 302USB Analog Mixer which then is connected to the programs Garageband for my review series & ScreenFlow for my podcast (which is a Mac program only) The audio and video is edited in Final Cut Pro and published on YouTube.
Why do you do what you do?
Doing this art has helped me improve my skills, with this skill I’m hoping to achieve my goals I have set for myself.What’s your background?
I've have lived Southern California for my whole life so far. As a child, I loved shows like The Simpsons & Futurama, they helped learn how animation worked and the production behind it.What’s integral to the work of an artist?
It's integral for an artist to have patience. No matter how good or bad you think your skills are at you are going to improve.What themes do you pursue?
I very much appreciate retro style themes. In music, art and when making videos. Based around art mainly appreciated in the 1960s. Artists like Amy Winehouse and Disney Animation.What jobs have you done other than being an artist?
I'm an engineer working to finish a 4-year class. I also work as an assistant to the Founder/Chairman of a major international industrial business.What do you dislike about the art world?
People who hate on artists who draw things a little bit off from their expectations. They can cause artists to be harassed and contemplate death in the name of social justice.Should art be funded?
Art and especially animation takes extreme amounts of patience to complete. Animation is a huge group project and it requires materials and skills to complete.What is your dream project?
I would love to pitch Silverleaf to networks and have it go into production. I'd love to get the attention of certain networks such as Frederator Studios & Cartoon Network. As Silverleaf would become an official show to be influence and bring joy to people.
