“Chill out, find out what works for you! You may feel you are not doing it at the moment, but you will, so just keep going!”
- Geneva didn’t think she will do art for living, she actually thought she would play video games for living
- She was inspired by a colorful art of Benjamin Zhang
- Geneva found a gallery to display her art in by just walking in one of the ones in downtown. She asked them if they were looking for new artists and they added her to a list and later she was able to exhibit her artworks
- Geneva is shy to talk to people in real life so it’s great for her to use Twitch and interact with her audience online
- Before starting, Geneva wishes she knew to not try to be perfect and to get frustrated with it. You shouldn’t really stress out because it affects your health
- Fav quote is from Neil Gaiman – “Do a good work and everything good will follow”
- Geneva’s latest Kickstarter:
- Geneva’s Art Book Tournesol – thick book, couple of tutorials and sketches – Jul 2017
- 80 pages, soft cover, full color
- Her inspiration are a lot of artists online she wishes she could meet sometime:
- Events – Anime in Atlanta
- Fav movie: Ponyo – Studio Ghibli – visual a masterpiece – there are no straight lines in the movie
- Business tool – Intuit Quickbooks – taxes – saves a lot of time!
