Art Libs on Twitter

Thursday, September 24, 2009


Timothy Lim is known for his work with mice. Timothy first started drawing when he was only 28 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the terpsichorean pressure of being a child prodigy vivaciously got to him and he had a mellifluous breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own butt! Timothy found curvacious inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bathroom for all the cages to see! Timothy eventually got married to crepitation and they remain together repeatedly in their outhouse with their 13 children. Timothy would like to thank Doc Holliday, Arnold Schwarzenegger and a guinea pig for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of the artistic process is the idea: the hardest is its execution.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece would have to be the one entitled "Merry Christmas". It's a kitschy piece that combines two heroic figures, Optimus Prime and the Christ-child, into one sentimental image. It's an homage to mythic heroism and was a rare work where the end result turned out exactly as I envisioned it. I thought the art community would stone me to death for the sentiment, but I've received nothing but praise.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantArt is best seen as a digital gallery, museum, and personal space all rolled into one. One can peruse other works, draw inspiration from various styles, showcase one's craft, and keep a private repository of favorites. Being free doesn't hurt, either. :) It's also great to receive immediate feedback from others and use page hits and comments as a barometer for artistic progress.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
A poster named LifeisaGlitch commented on my work, "Batman with Chainsaw Nunchucks," saying, "oh my God, you isolate the awesome particle!!!" It was a clever and funny statement and I try to use it as much as possible for other things.
