Linshuttr: Interview

 

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

work

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I'm soon to be the greatest

Why do you do what you do?

Because I love it,its in my genes

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

When I wasnt accepted into any other colleges but the art institute of pgh then I graduated and all i knew

was to do illustrations.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

heavy crtiticism in my last year of college. Classmates talking sideways 
about me doing an art form(3d anim) i really didnt like. My father opposing my decision to do art as well. A lot of things people have said and done
 i'll take to my grave. Its not that im sensitive but you dont forget peoples words and actions.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Yes, I listen to Eric Thomas inspiration mixtapes at times. Hes definitely fuel to my fire. Knowing that I have little cousins looking up to me is definitely an inspiration. I'm the one artist in my family who decided to really put myself out there.I'm going to do big things with my talents. For my supporters,my family,and my uncle yusef who died Nov.2013.He was an artist and I told him I'm going to keep the art alive.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Sticking around people who add nothing to my progress. I've learned to make friends with the right people.

A lot of people you have to look at and analyze whats their true intentions, why are they in your life, are they worth your time?I do this alot now. Im very maticulous on how I spend my money and how I spend my time,because I oweit to art. If i feel if you're not helping me grow or progress my art I wont use my time on you

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I don't like sharing things I'm doing. Less anouncements, more actions is the motto.(i saw on IG from an artist)

Thats such a deep concept but its true

How many people you know anounce a clothing line, or collab and never gothrew with it.

I plan to keep making progress and do bigger and better art pieces.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Do less dreaming and praying and start working. We as people have more power than we give ourselves credit for.we always think some mysterious being will drop us into our dreams.it takes alot of ground work and a pinch of help from the most Hiii

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thank you to my family, supporters,art collectors,Wale and the whole EveryBlueMoon Movement. Praise to the most Hiii
