30 Artists in 30 Days

30 Artists in 30 Days Feature

October Feature

If you follow me on Social Media, you would know that I’m a fan of art.  If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you are too.  So I am preparing something very special for you, my dear starlings!  Yes, 30 Artists being interviewed and will be posted daily for 30 days, commencing on 1st October 2017.

Some artists have become household names but some are lesser known, yet just as amazing.  They range from collage artists to water and oil paint artists to digital artists.  Hey, there’s even some street artists in there (I’ll keep you guessing).  I’m really looking forward to sharing their artwork and interviews with you all.

If you’re not already a subscriber to this site, you can enter your email address at the bottom of the page.  You will only receive notifications when new posts are uploaded.  In October, this will be daily so apologies in advance if I drive you insane.  But still, subscribe.  It’s good for your left brain.  You will be sure to fall in love with some of the creatives out there.

If you’re a photographer or prefer photography, don’t worry.  I got your back.  Photography features will follow in upcoming months.

Alllrrrright I get it, you’ve subscribed to too many e-mails already.  That’s ok.  Just follow me on Instagram and Facebook and you will see daily posts of the days feature artist.  Deal?  Please see my social links at the bottom of the the page.

Over and out until the 1st October.

Day 16 – YUUM

Yuki Murashita of YUUM is from Fukuoka, Japan.  YUUM is a self-taught artist and loves using digital mediums such as her Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop.

 

Are you a self taught artist, or what studies did you do to get where you are today?
I am self-taught artist, but I studied photography and cinematography a little at collage 🎥🎞
I liked drawing from a very young age, I was influenced by manga, anime, movies, music, fashion magazines…etc. I used the trial and error method to establish my own drawing style.

 

What tools, programs and apps do you love or cannot live without?
I love digital tools such as Wacom’s tablet, Photoshop, scanner and so on. Also, sketchbooks and pens are necessities for me!🗒✍️

 

Your art provides inspirations to so many others.  What or who inspires you?
Thank you so much!☺️🌈
Many artists inspired me. Among them, fafi.
In addition, music, movies, fashion magazines and Pinterest always give me inspiration.

Can you describe your process including how long a piece of art or photography takes you from concept to complete?

Sometimes I draw pictures only with Photoshop, but mainly I scan my drawings and then finish with Photoshop. Both will take 1-2 days.
👇Process👇
1)concept – getting an idea from music, fashion and my feelings.
2)line drawing – drawing randomly.
3) Scanning – scanning my drawings at a high resolution.
4) Colouring – adding color to drawings with Photoshop.

 

What part of your process do you love the most?
Most favorite process is line drawing! I feel pleasure that what I imagined becomes shape.

 

If you weren’t an artist, what do you think you would be doing for work?
I think I would be a circus entertainer!🎪 Because I was good at doing forward upward circling on the bar.

 

Who is the most fascinating or inspiring person you have met or worked with?
I always get the power to draw pictures from my family, my sister, my friends! They are my energy sources💖

 

Name an underrated artist 
My friend, Lulu Buono. Her art is dreamy, lovely and cute. She is talented!✨

What artwork of yours are you most proud of? 
The picture of Bob Hair girl (my profile picture!) is my favorite series. She was born in about 30 seconds at the edge of my notebook. It is a memorable character now💘

 

What’s next in the professional pipe works for you?
In order to get to know me more, I’m making my own products and preparing for an art event in Tokyo.
And getting ready to start my online store!

 

Bonus fun questions
What is your current favourite album?
My most favorite album is “Dua Lipa” now❣️
Apart from art, what is your favourite thing to do?
I like going to hot springs with my family and traveling with my sister or my friends✈️
When I’m alone, I like to find nice ones at book stores and grocery stores.
Fun Fact:
I am doing a job in public relations at a department store 😊 (In the future, I hope to become freelance artist!)
