Can I ask who/what your biggest inspirations are? Artists, movies, etc. that truly left an impression on you? Or is that too big of a question, haha.

artists:

james jean, sergio toppi, sergey kolesov, andrew wyeth, lucian freud, egon schiele…i could list many more.

movies:

oldboy (i like korean movies), the fall, ghibli. great pictures&colours

a big source of inspiration is music. i can’t leaf my house without my ipod. at the moment i’m listening to arcade fire and the national : 3

and i love nature. 

Anonym asked:

do you think you learned/are learning a lot through art school? would you say it really made a difference for your skills?

i think it does, because i can just focus on my work. the biggest help is that there are so many people giving me conctructive criticism and it’s also motivating to see their work and sit together and draw and talk about art, aritists … or just drink a beer. but there is no prof that teaches you how to draw, if you want to improve your anatomical skills you have to work on your own. (there are courses for life drawing, but all in all my uni is very unacademical)
