MattVTwelve

Matt is known for his work with drinks. Matt first started drawing when he was only 12 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the ridiculous pressure of being a child prodigy gently got to him and he had a bad breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own neck! Matt found empty inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his living room for all the ice to see! Matt eventually got married to Bill Gates and they remain together slowly in the Tour Eiffel with their 89 children. Matt would like to thank Caesar, Megan Fox and Raffaello Sanzio for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The most difficult part of an artistic process is certainly the beginning.
Creating artwork is never simple, you should try to make a work that please the "public", but at the same time it must reflect yourself, your way of being, of seeing life. A relatively simple, it is the choice of the title of an artwork. I'm used to assign a title to my own creation only after I've finished. The first impression that jump into my head looking at : here is, that's the title!

Where and how do you find inspiration?
Inspiration is something really unexpected! The most logical thing to do is to browse the work of others, watching carefully the technique, and the manner of representation. I often stand for hours looking for an idea that might serve me for an artwork, but without results. Other times, I start a job with clear ideas and the conviction of what I'm doing. So I think that the inspiration is only a kind of "soul's mirror", and is directly influenced by mood.

What do you feel is the significance of online communities, such as deviantART, to aspiring artists?
Online communities are very important in my view, allow artists to meet and get views from people with completely different outlook on life. Tips and comments are key to the stimulation of an artist.

What is the weirdest, strangest or funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"Ive had sex with all of them.............Multiple times" [.Cit]

What advice can you offer to other artists?
The only advice I can give you: follow your passions and your interests. Work must be judged not by how many views it receives, but from what the author has enjoyed doing it.
