Anders Josefsson is known for his work with goats. Anders first started drawing when he was only 7 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the freckled pressure of being a child prodigy heavily got to him and he had a raving breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own hooves! Anders found grainy inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his sacristy for all the chariots to see! Anders eventually got married to a bee and they remain together deadly in their dome with their 12 children. Anders would like to thank Socrates, Bob Dylan and donkeys for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process? For traditional art, I must admit that getting the gear up and finally settle down are the hardest part, since the moment of inspiration usually fades when everything is ready. Digital art is easier to get started with since it usually only consists of an "On" button. I find conceptualizing easiest (mostly).

Which is your favourite piece and why?
"Death Rider". I found a girl some fifteen years ago painting a reaper on a horse in a gallery I visited. I commented on the piece, the rest is history (and now we are living together). So it is a memory of that moment.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I found it out by accident one year ago and thought it a lovely place to frequent. I like the fact that so many disparate artists of all ages and styles intermingle. It's like the Earth.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
When applying once in my youth to an art school the professor told me he couldn't let me study in his school. His reason was that he found my paintings having "too much individualistic style". I never really got what he meant by that.

Please make sure to check out his deviantART page! And as always, remember to respect the art and the artists! The art on this blog is here because we were given permission to put it on here.
