I would also like to thank Lou Anders for all the nice things he had to say about my work in the article.
I did an interview for them, and not all of it was published. So if you want to read some incoherent rambling they managed to edit down for the article I have included the full version below.
-Any advice for aspiring artists?
I think a lot of aspiring artists sell themselves short in their work. The most common theme I see amongst intermediate level artists is simply a lack of love and effort put into the work, usually in the details and backgrounds. So much of what I do involves no great skill, but a mere willingness to put the effort into every square inch of the painting. “Good enough” is never good enough in my opinion.
