Q1: When did you start making art?
I’ve never known without holding a pencil or drawing or tinkering with something. I guess you could say I have it in my blood πŸ™‚

Q2: What does inspire you?
Lots of things, but mainly the body and flesh, deformations, fear (main emotion I instinctively develops), mechanics, compared to the human senses, sometimes connections to mythology, transfers materials.

Q3: What are your techniques?
What I found when I feel the idea come; but often photomontage, mainly original concept is drawn, I make my own stock photos (textures / model / etc) to be more personal can think for a while and throws me. Or, give way to instinct and I must admit that I love when it’s unexpected, because it is more like Viceral type of development ^-^

Otherwise I am in the traditional techniques (pencil, pen, paint, etc.) as well as with digital painting. Short, I do not limit myself regarding techniques.

Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
Like I said, it depends on the support of the ideology and my own experiences. This inevitably affects the whole thing. But what I have observed, interpreted and translated with my own code as much as possible. if fear and loneliness (abandonment) are most present there are also more positive sides of course, but always with a slight bitterness.

Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
One color / tint is not enough, too many subjects and variants. It reflects a lot of things, so it must be changed very quickly. But out of the color (in the strict sense), there is still a lack of light (small or large) and therefore there is the black identifiable.

Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
Need more time. Probably new equipment, need to clear my head to improve my work and especially after my arm – hand making me suffer for some time already, but I did not really stopped working. Otherwise obviously improving my technique over and over again.

Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
Projects, I have a lot, but hard to do in the immediate future given the current circonstnaces. I would like to have the opportunity to further develop universes in place of concept artist or illustrator. Otherwise return some video experiences, and return a little my music activities. Anyway I’d really like to have more time and comfort to develop my own projects.

Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of zero-scarecrow13.
Wow. It’s always tough to ^-^ Everyone has always something different to say about it: also if someone finds how to define it, I listen carefully ^_^ Hmmmm .. I think I say .. bitter, dark surreal, inside. I think can be taken in a certain axis. πŸ™‚

Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
As I said I do not remember to have ever drawn. I consider my earliest childhood drawings, as the first foundations of what has become my style today. Knowing that already small I had a clear tendency to create hybrid creatures to the surprise of those around me ^^ So I do not consider “start” from a time and therefore do not have a real first artwork or so lost in my many sketchbooks. Good luck to find it. πŸ™‚

Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
Push further the concepts, forms, techniques; improving everything without stopping, as I’m trying to do with the new creation, sometimes the chance to experiment new things. πŸ™‚

Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
Art … Always a great question … For me it’s a bit of both. Some think about something stimulating missing in existence, own translation of certain forms of vivid emotions, others do see it as a hobby or a waste of time .. It is very hard to give a clear meaning. From my point of view, it is a form of constantly changing aspects in the eyes of society. Learn to take in life elements and offer so they complement each other and lead to something new, unique as possible. (This is not for nothing a large period of time is needed to create and many efforts we finished exhausted, it takes a lot of energy to give life, isn’t it ladies ^_^ “? )
