Today we’re joined by Darcy. Darcy is an amazingly talented visual artist and their pictures are absolutely wonderful. My thanks to them for taking the time to participate in this interview.
Please, tell us about your art.
I really can not explain my art, my style changes a lot. The best way to explain my art is semi realistic at times and full on cartoon style. Um, I am not to good at coloring, shading, and painting. I love absolutely love color schemes. I usually just draw traditionally and digitally. I am most comfortable drawing human bodies of various sizes, colors, races, and sexes.
What inspires you?
Other artists, like Imaishi Hiroyuki, Satoshi Tajir, Takeuchi Naoko, Author De Pins, and many many more on tumblr. I also like the aesthetics of musical artists like: Purity Ring, Caravan Place, Outkast, Massive Attack. Random people also give me inspiration.
What got you interested in your field? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
Every since I was in third grade I loved to draw, I never saw myself truly improved into I got my first tablet in eight grade. I haven’t thought about being an artist or animator into I went to high school. Before I wanted to be a Ballerina /Veterinarian.
Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in our work that you’d be willing to reveal?
Aaaaah not I dont have any I think? (if someone notices I do just point it out).
What advice would you give young aspiring artists?
DRAW. Draw what you like, only what you like. Only come out your comfort square for something you know it’ll be worth it.
Where on the spectrum do you identify?
I’m Demisexual? I’m also Panromantic and maybe Polyromantic???
Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field? If so, how do you handle it?
None yet towards me. I would just try to explain the ace spectrum as a whole the best way I could.
What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?
If you don’t have sex with your partner, they will leave you.
If you still have a sex drive you’re not ace.
What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?
JUST BE YOU, don’t let others tell you how you should feel or not feel. You are real.
Finally, where can people find out more about your work?
Thank you so much, Darcy, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
