Hi there! I’m sarkasik
I love using bold colours, drawing geometric shapes and characters and constructing positive illustrations out of them. Most of my inspiration comes from other forms of art and personal experience. I try not to look too much into other illustrators for inspiration because I noticed that I tend to get drowned in it quickly and social media can be a real creativity and time killer, so instead I often look into photography, architecture, literature and visit museums or just take walks and observe. Having a Sketchbook next to my bed and writing down ideas and dreams is also an unbelievably good resource for illustrations and art. Ever since I was young I was super interested in a lot of different art directions, I would draw and paint, make jewellery and take photographs and also animate and design. At some point I thought I had to choose and concentrate on one direction, but for now I think that this is not true: Do whatever you love for as long as you want and eventually it will fall into place. And I’m happy right now to be able to switch from one artform to another when I feel blocked or in need of inspiration and a fresh look. In this month’s art box you will find acrylic markers, fineliners, two pencils and a brush, which can be used all together, alone and also on the go. My tip would be to get wild and really test how different media react together.
