Interviewed!


{brand new bag in the shop!}

My friend LaurenSmash posted a fun interview challenge on her blog, so I decided to ask her for some interview questions... Here are my answers:

1. What is your favorite animal and why?

My favorite animal is Miss Ruby Roo, my bichon frise because she is the smartest, cutest, bestest doggy in the world! I was obsessed with bichon frises when I was little, but my parents wouldn't let me get a dog...this was before I developed really bad allergies, which meant I had limited choices of what dog breeds I could get. Bichons were one of only a few breeds (like poodles) that were a possibility for me, because they have continually growing (non-shedding) hair!

2. What is your biggest inspiration?

Right now, my biggest inspirations are the instances of creativity I come across on the internet and in books. There is NO art scene at all where I live (grrr...), so I have to seek out art in other ways since I can't see any in person. I love browsing Flickr.com, Etsy.com, websites from random galleries, artist web pages, and things like that. I love checking out books at the library or going to a bookstore to see the latest art magazines. I really wish I could afford to travel to see some great art in person one of these days...

3. If you could drop everything and go *anywhere* you wanted right now, where would it be and who would you bring with you?

My friend Sam and I could both use a vacation, so I would whisk us away to Paris and Rue Montmarte, the street where they have tons of artists, some who will sketch your portrait for a fee. We would have a magic suitcase full of cash so we could have our portraits done and eat lots of buttery croissants! Then maybe we could jet to Italy for some pasta... ;)

4. What are your 3 favorite movies?

Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and maybe High Fidelity.

5. What is one of your goals for 2009?

To try to make Etsy/art my full time job! Pretty lofty goal, but I would love if I could make that dream come true.
