Young Artist Series Featuring Korbin!

A Facebook friend of mine Tracy and I were discussing the young artist series I have started and she informed me of her son's amazing talent of drawing magna. So I would like to present Korbin, age 15 in 8th grade! Enjoy and comment if you get a chance!

Q: When did you start drawing?
A: I have been drawing since I was very young but I really started to do it often in about 2nd grade.

Q: How did you get involved with Manga? Any shows or comics inspiration for you?

A: I became interested in Manga when I found an On Demand show by Mark Crilley (a Manga artist) where he teaches you how to draw Manga. My inspiration mostly comes from shows like Bleach, Black Cat, and Code Geass.

Q: Do you prefer black and white drawing or color?
A:I prefer black and white but seeing color in them looks better. I cannot color very well but I have my mom color in my drawings with her Copic markers.

Thanks, Korbin! Do YOU have young artist? Email me if you do. WE are looking for kids age 18 and younger.

Young Artist Series#1: featuring my boys Michael and Jake!







I have decided to start a new blog series featuring the talents of children who often get overlooked in the adult world. First of all I must showcase my own two boys who are extremely creative ( gee wonder where they get that from! LOL)

Michael ( age 9) and Jake ( age 6) both love to draw and paint/mixed media work. Here are some questions I asked them:

Q: What is your favorite type of art?

Michael: I like drawing with pen . I love horror art!

Jake: I like using pencil cause if I make a mistake I can erase it. I like scary art too.

Q: Do you want to keep creating art when you are older?

Michael: I do.

Jake: Me too.

So proud of them!

Do YOU have a young artist? If so contact me . Looking to showcase artists,photographers, writers, musicians.

Young Artist Series featuring: Kenzi Alizabeth!

I have just recently discovered that one of my twitter friends ( and White Collar fan too!) is an amazing 13 year old photographer with a brilliant eye! We were discussing photography and I decided that I had to share her work with you.

Q: How old were you when you started in photography?

A: I was 8 when I started out in photography & I got really interested in it when I was 11. I'm 13 now.

Q: What type of photography do you like the best and why?

A: I love nature because it's really beautiful to get pictures of different animals or flowers. I also enjoy portraits because they show the beauty of every person.

Q. Do you prefer dark room or digital and why?

A: I prefer digital because it's a lot easy for me that way.

Q. Any other types of art interest you?

A: Hmm..I enjoy painting with acrylics, but I haven't done that in a long time. Creative writing is really fun too!

This is just a small sampling of her amazing work. Check out her website for more.
