! Dear suggesters, please remember that I'm looking for traditionally done and underappreciated pieces.One more thing:
there's a big community project going on now, Gallery Makeover
. Since CWs are about traditional art, I'll point you towards an article about Trad Art GM
, where you can comment on it and post your ideas consider this project.
I count on you!
3 questions to ~Koariko and ~Drunkfu!
What is that attracts you to traditional art?
- I love traditional art because, you know, it's so close. One may take a pencil and start drawing.. It does not require all this electronic stuff to make a traditional piece of art. And that's why I appreciate it.
- I suppose I like traditional art because it's usually the end result of digital art to print something out on paper. So it's sort of like skipping to the end, and because there's no control-z for canvas and paper, it has more of a bit of charm to it, and the mistakes you end up making (probably more myself than others) end up giving the piece character.
When was the first time you've encountered the story of Alice in Wonderland? What do you find especially interesting about the story?
- When I was a child my mother used to read me lots of books. The story of Alice was among them, indeed. This tale is still one of my most favourite ones ever.
- The first time I encountered Alice in Wonderland was probably the same as most folks, from the Disney cartoon. I only really got interested in it in my adult life, and when I picked up on how much of a math geek Lewis Carroll was.
Thank you for this nice interview!
- I like everything about Alice herself. She's little, a bit capricious girl with golden hair. Pretty image.
Also i find interesting the world of Wonderland. Every single detail is strange, funny and curious. This gives a lot things for imagination. The book may be illustrated thousands of times and still there will be left some details uncaptured.
- The story is interesting to me because of how iconic it turned today, and all the wild imaginative imagery, finding insane and crazy adventure in the most mundane of things that most people at the time of the writing were all probably well accustomed to and considered boring. Chess, gardening, card games, tea time, all made into unbelievable exciting adventures. In a way, it's saying how things we're used to and consider to be every-day average things can be fantastic and insane and crazy with the right perspective.
