Her Questions:

1. Is art a hobby to you, or do you plan to make a living off of it? (No judgment, just curious. ;))


It’s a hobby, but I plan on making half of my living on it at least. ;)


2. Has becoming an artist changed your view of yourself or the world?


I really don’t know. It’s made me more aware of details and such that may be pertinent to my work.


3. What would you say is an artist’s role in society?


To help people remember that they’re human.


4. Are there any themes that consistently show up in your art?


Not sure… love, female strength, overcoming emotional obstacles, magic power from the self, mysticism, etc…


5. Describe a real-life situation that inspired you. (It may be something that happened directly to you, or it may be something that happened to someone else but you knew about it.)


Give me a few months to think about this; most inspiration comes from my dreams, or browsing the internet for interesting names and subjects.


6. What is some memorable feedback you’ve received on your work?


“It was great. I don’t know that it needs improvement.” --- (I somehow end up getting this type of comment a lot. It’s kind of annoying, yet at the same time encouraging)


7. Is there anything you dislike about the art world?


The people that can make or break you.


8. Name an artist, living or dead, who you’d like to critique your work.


Alice Hoffman


9. Do you have a specific “method”? (For example, if you’re a writer, do you start out with an overall idea and then work down to the details, or do you start with details and work your way up to an overall idea?)


No specific method; I’m not that organized. :P


10. How do you know when a work is finished?


I hardly ever finish anything, so I’m not quite sure.


11. How do you feel when someone interprets your art differently?


Differently than what? Everyone has their own ideas about things; I don’t expect any specific reactions, really.


12. How would you say your work has changed/developed over time?


It’s definitely improved, more specific in the description area and dialogue not as cheesy.


13. Is there any advice you have for aspiring artists (or fellow aspiring artists)?


Do whatever makes you happy, but please expect that when you put your work out there, people will give you criticism whether you want it or not/ asked for it or not.


14. And lastly, do you know you’re awesome? (Because you are. :heart:)


Yup! I certainly do! But thank you for confirming that! :XD:



My Questions:


1. What is your favorite period in history to study or write about or draw on, or whatever?


2. If you had your own time machine, would travel to the past to change anything?


3. Are there any cultures in the world (other than your own) that interest you?


4. Do you think you’d be able to adjust to this culture if you were suddenly thrown into it?


5. Any languages besides English and/or your own that you speak?


6. Any languages that you don’t speak that interest you?


7. Preference: Star Wars or Star Trek?


8. Why that one? (in relation to the previous question)


9. Preference: Fantasy or Sci-Fi? (or both)


10. Any books or movies you like in that genre? (in relation to the previous question)


11. What is your favorite book and/or movie in the entire world?


12. Any passage or quote from it that you like in particular?


13. What is the funniest joke you’ve ever heard?


14. Multiple choice – If someone left a note on your car that said: “You park like an asshole and don’t derserve to drive” what would you do?

A. Get mad and crunch the note

B. Cry over it and get depressed because you realize they’re right and you’ll never be able to drive well

C. Laugh about it and the note-writer’s misspelling of the word “deserve”

D. Other: _________


I tag… whoever feels like doing this! :)


PS. The last question is something that happened to my mom; she laughed about it.



Hope you enjoyed this. Learn anything new? ;)


Love you all,

Holly Fiore

So... our birthday's coming up. Got any plans? ;)
ImagineAppleScruffs Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha! :D Yeah! Going out to eat for supper. And the one thing I want for my birthday is a new guitar; a better quality one than my current Jay Turser acoustic. It served my needs for a while, but now that my playing has improved, I need something that can stand up to my fingers and frequent use.
The one I want is an Oscar Schmidt by Washburn, it's a green acoustic-electric with a cutaway. I hope the strings don't buzz. ;)

What about you, my friend? :)

TheEmptyChest Featured By Owner 1 day ago
Sounds awesome! :dance: I've never learned to play guitar (although I've tried before and all I've got to say is kudos to those who develop the skill! XD), but my dad used to and I always loved when he got a new one. They're such beautiful instruments and they've got such a nice sound. :nod: I don't have any big plans. Just a nice, homemade dinner and cake (also homemade), and whatever presents my family saw fit to buy me. I'll probably have a friend over, but that's it. I'm a simple gal. :XD:
