1. What is your Instagram account? Do you have any other social media accounts for your art?
My Instagram account is where I showcase my artwork—mostly digital pieces—with some traditional pieces scattered throughout. It’s basically a showcase of my artistic journey. It’s also a dream. I would love to grow my Instagram account to the point where I’m functioning as a constant business doing what I thoroughly enjoy, but on a grander scale. I would love to do illustration work as a part of my career path.
I use Twitter (@thai_apathy) for reaching a wider audience with my art. The algorithms is becoming trickier to utilize, so it’s almost necessary to have your hands on multiple platforms.
2. What was the first art piece that you remember impacted you and inspired you to make art?
I believe that what brought me onto my path to where I am now as a creator was Naruto.
As we all know, anime and manga is an art form that has impacted plenty of artists. I remember watching Naruto on Toonami on Saturdays when I was in the first grade. I would draw characters from it.
I have to say that my current influences range on a wider scale than just anime and manga. I also deeply admire Alphonse Mucha and his illustrations as well as his magazine illustrations from the 1890s, especially French ones.
I enjoy things that are playful and whimsical as well as those that express a type of femininity, like pieces from the Rococo period.
All of these influences have influenced me.
