Leslie Liapes is known for her work with poodles. Leslie first started drawing when she was only 16 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the sullen pressure of being a child prodigy enthusiastically got to her and she had a robust breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own ankle! Leslie found powerful inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bathroom for all the laptops to see! Leslie eventually got married to a hamper and they remain together forcefully in their doghouse with their 9 children. Leslie would like to thank Alexander the Great, Seth Meyers and the lemurs for their constant support and inspiration.
What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part: being creative when you NEED to be, not being creative when you WANT to be.
The easiest: making art with passion
Which is your favourite piece and why?
my favorite of my pieces is a tie between Swing Away ((SEE LAST PICTURE BELOW)) and Spring Has Sprung ((SEE FIRST PICTURE BELOW)) because for me, they both mark turning points and moments of realization and progression in my skill and passion for photography.
What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I absolutely love how everyone is so kind and helpful. I've also been inspired so many times by other artists both visually and mentally.
What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
One of my pictures of a drummer from a band I did promos for, someone commented saying what a hottie he was. I don't know, I found it extremely amusing for some reason.
