Interview with Bryce Marttinen

Why do you make art?

Because it is a hobby of mine that I enjoy to do. I like being creative and I can express what I am feeling. It can reveal your thoughts.

What type of art do you make?

Mostly cartoon style artwork, I like to draw cartoons that’s my thing. That’s what I am good at, such as drawing comics, I like to redraw characters, and also draw people in cartoon style.

What type of materials do you use to make art?

Mostly pencils and paper are my favorite , occasionally I draw with colored pencils.

Who or what inspires you to make art?

Something that looks cool in the world, or something that  looks like it would be fun to draw. If something appeals to me or has cool style, I want to draw it.

Who is your favorite artist and why?

Bill Watterson because he has some amazing art skills and his comics are amazing.

What artwork have you made that you are most proud of?

I made a 3-D cartoon tower in the forest, and I really enjoy how it turned out. It looks very detailed.

How do you know when your artwork is finished?  

I sit back and take a look at it, and see if it’s acceptable and looks correct. If something looks wrong, I will keep drawing until it looks complete.

Do you plan to make a career from art?

Possibly, maybe graphic design or something. I’m not too sure on that question.

Would you ever sell your artwork?

Yes, if someone wants to buy it.

What project are you working on right now?

I am drawing a random portrait of a random person. I actually don’t know who it is or what it is.

What is the most important tool for making your artwork?

A pencil because I like to draw and shade like a said. I don’t like using a shading stick.

What themes do you pursue?

Cartoon style stuff, and I like to be colorful when making my artwork so that leads me to start shading.

Do you ever listen to music while listening to art? Does it make you more creative?

Yes, but it’s just because I like listening to music not because it makes me more creative.
