Octobig

Jade is known for her work with monsters. Jade first started drawing when she was only 22 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the dark pressure of being a child prodigy boldly got to her and she had a blue breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own thumb! Jade found mahogany inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her living room for all the computers to see! Jade eventually got married to a robot and they remain together beautifully in their mobile home with their 45 children. Jade would like to thank Abraham Lincoln, Hugh Jackman and the clown fish for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest part is probably getting a new idea and letting it evolve by talking to friends and family. The hardest part is actually getting it done (I’m a bit of a procrastinator). Another thing which is hard because there’s no way you can predict it, is simply stumbling upon a scene that is so incredibly stunning that you have got to do little else than just snap a picture of it.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favourite piece is not among the ones featured here, since I don’t consider it my best. But it’s a picture of a location I very much love, and my heart is with it: 'Magic Kingdom'.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
First of all, deviantART is a huge source of inspiration. Also, it’s very easy to network or connect with other artists, thanks to the enormous amount of registered people on the site and the forum. There’s room for insightful comments, helpful critiques but fun conversations as well. For me, it’s a healthy combination of art and networking.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
A chemistry teacher from our school visited our Art class’ exhibition, and asked me with a very serious face: “Do tell me, please, what is the source behind all this creativity? What does it mean? Does it depict in any way how you feel?”
And then he started crawling on the floor around my work to find all kinds of little details. I tell you, the man was adorable and attentive in every aspect!
