about the art

cat greatly enjoys thomas kinkade and paintings of kittens. also, sarcasm. her favorite medium is a bad photo and a computer graphics program. her favorite artist is her boyfriend, Scott, the sculptor of dark - arch nemesis of thomas kinkade.

sarcasm aside, i only speak in the third person when sleep deprived. i love anything art nouveau (as you can probably discern from my works) and i hate abstract pieces that are all white because the painter "didn't want anything in the painting that wasn't supposed to be there". in short, i hate pretentious modern art, but not good modern art. emotive pieces with vibrant, saturated colors draw me like a moth. i like innovative presentations. if you are an artist and describe your inspiration as "the connections" between random things, then whether you know it or not, you are using a cop-out, because that's probably the most common "inspiration" i've ever heard of.

personally, my inspirations are generally very simple. some drawings start as doodles (like the penguins, who started as a doodle of a tulip-like nature). others begin as misinterpretations--when my eyes play tricks on me. most often, i'm insprired by simple everyday scenes that are usually taken for granted, which i think is a pretty typical inspiration. i don't typically get a lot of chances to use my inspiration to make personal art at present--most of my attention is fixed on projects and drawings for classes.
