What would you want to share with the world?

In terms of my art, not much lol. But seriously, I think the era of social media gives us a false feeling that everybody is watching, when in fact that are not. Most of the art that has been created through out history has not been seen by most people, and I believe that holds true even today, even with all the means we have for sharing our art and life online. The easier it is to share, more things get shared but most of that is lost in the online shuffle. And I don't think that's all that bad. Mostly I create for myself, not in order to share anything with anyone in particular. You put things out there and if someone can relate in their own way, great. But if no one does, it doesn't mean you should stop creating.

What influences you & you art?

It's hard for me to answer this because I have the worst memory for certain things. I can rarely pinpoint where or when I have seen something and just thought "Oh this is what I am going to draw". Mostly I decide I am going to work on something and then I start to notice things around me that could serve that purpose. But I can never really tell what brought about that original idea, although I am sure it's something in my everyday life that I saw or heard and it randomly pop-ups in my head again when I am looking for ideas.  

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?

World change can only come from personal change, and the one area most of us, as people, seem to lack is empathy. Empathy is something we could always use more of, but is so hard to achieve. Can you really put yourself in somebody else's life experience? Probably not, but it is easy to think you know all there is to know and judge.
