Artist of the Week: Krishna Sadasivam
Tell us a bit about yourself
I work as a professor at the Art Institute of Tampa – I also work as a freelance illustrator and cartoonist. I recently self-published my first book, “PC Weenies: Rebootus Maximus”, featuring characters from my long running webcomic, “The PC Weenies”. When I’m not teaching, I spend the balance of my time between freelance work and my family.
What’s been your inspiration for art?
My inspiration comes from television, cartoons, and comic books. I’m constantly trying to find new ways to push my work. Looking at what other artists are doing with the medium inspires me to push myself to the next level.
What supplies do you use for your art?
I work digitally these days. I use an Intuos4 tablet to create my art. I digitally ink using Corel Painter X, and I do everything else in Photoshop. However, I still maintain sketchbooks because nothing beats drawing with paper and pencil.There are no photos with those IDs or post 20166 does not have any attached images!
Any advice for beginners?
Draw. Draw. Draw. I know many new artists hear that a lot – but the clichÃ© is true. The more you draw and the more you observe, the better you’ll be. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Style is something you’ll develop without realizing it, don’t worry about it at the onset.
