ArtistsDo you have a favorite artist who inspires you to create wonderful paintings, drawings or sculptures? If so, why did this artist inspire you?
The artist who inspires me most is William Faulkner. The verve and urgency that vein his writing always make me want to write. I guess it's the passion, but not only that, it's the passion of the ideas that gets me going.
My favorite artist and I have very differing art styles and mediums actually, but he was the first one to inspire me to begin my career in art regardless. I owe this to Vincent van Gogh because he was the first artist I was introduced to in elementary school and because of him I was absolutely fascinated by his art style. You would also think that I might've become a painter like him, used colors like him, or paint amazing landscapes as him; however, I love using graphite pencils, draw in black and white, and I love drawing faces.
