Hi! Your ar is awesome and I adore it much! I guess that its been asked before, but do you have polish roots? Can you speak polish? Im asking because of your surname, you know :) Thanks for the answer

A

Czesc! Dzieki! Yes- I’m first generation American, 100% Polish. My Polish speaking skills are pretty terrible, but I can say the important things like, ”co jest na obiad?” and “kotlety, znowu????” 

Enjoy this gif of my dancing home country:

Anonymous asked:

what's your dream job?

A

I once met a guy in Malibu whose job was literally to vacation places. “Location Scout” for movies was his title. While this seemed like the most ridiculously, impressively amazing dream job, he seemed unhappy with a hint of unfulfillment, didn’t speak highly of how the job affected his personal life, etc. So while I would like to say that my “dream job” would be to browse Reddit and eat pizza all day, maybe it wouldn’t really be so amazing in reality? Maybe I would get fat and become totally socially inept and have jello legs forever. So maybe those fantasy dreams aren’t so fantastic after all. Or maybe I’m just saying that out of pessimism.

My real life dream job, for serious, would have to be one in which I work with storyboard writers, create characters, sculpt toys, illustrate fun gifs, get breaks to ride my bike and come back to continue drawing and painting and illustrating things until forever. I want to publish some children’s books, illustrate beer labels (Ralph Steadman for Flying Dog - total hero), design fun merchandise, work with tv cartoons, et cetera et cetera. 

I just want to be creative all day, that’s my dream job. Someone give me this job please!

I love your style! How did you like MICA?

A

Thank you so much! MICA was the most fascinating/ thrilling/ insane/ beautiful/ confusing/ stressful 4 years of my life. My only regret would be that I wish I figured out what the hell I was doing, stylistically, earlier on- but you can’t really force those things. I was definitely very lost for a very long time. Otherwise, I’ve met and learned so much from some really talented, amazing, inspirational people. I miss that tight-knit community.. but I’m also veryveryvery glad that it’s over and that I’m out of Baltimore and expanding and moving onward!

Porównując nasze stopnie wojskowe (jestem stopień wyżej, jaj!), zastanawiałem się, czy może mam do czynienia z Polką? Emigrantką, zgaduję? Jak to się stało, że zawędrowałaś aż na drugi koniec globu? Po drugie: warto? Above text was written in Polish, if you are not familiar with this language (I supposed you were), I'm deeply sorry for trouble. Greetings, ~simple.

A

Pozdrowienia, Captain! Masz rację ż jestem Polką, ale urodziłam się tutaj w Stanach.. Moi rodzice przyjechali w 80-tych latach. Ja byłam w Polsce kilka razy, ale nie wystarczająco. Tutaj są a few photos from my most recent trip!

I wanted to include maybe one photo for fun, and then ended up with like 20, somehow narrowed it down to what I have here, and then realized it doesn’t really fit in with my whole illustration theme for this blog.. but wanted to share it anyway.
Na razie!

You shouldn't make jokes about blind people, it's not coo. As a blind person, if I was able to see your blind joke post, I would have been very offended. Furthermore, how am I typing.

A

So not coo. Here! I translated the joke into braille for you.. This solves all the problems, right?

Do you mind sharing what brand of gouache you use? I use Holbein Acryla gouache, and have never been able to re-wet it once dry. If that kind of magic were possible, my only complaint with the medium would be resolved!

A

I love your work! Your cookies and milk one is my favorite. So good. So the thing about traditional gouache that keeps it soluble is it’s base- gum arabic. Acryla gouache is different in that it’s acrylic based, making it water resistant when dry. I actually really enjoy Acryla gouache, I find it a lot easier to layer with. I have some traditional Holbein gouaches that are re-wettable, you can always try getting some of those if you want to stick with Holbein, but the majority of mine are Schmincke. The magic is definitely possible!
