Anzzia Magazine Spring 2019 Volume #30 - Page 15

Anzzia: What memorable responses have you had to your work?

Paige: When people find my work inspiring. It’s one of my goals when creating my art, I want to inspire and motivate people, especially other artists, to create.

Anzzia: How do you seek out opportunities?

Paige: Usually, I check out what’s going on in the art world on social media because word

spreads the fastest there.

Anzzia: How do you price your work?

Paige: It all depends on the subject and complexity of the piece, how long it takes and what it’ll

be used for. There’s a kind of technicality to it that I’m still learning.

Anzzia: What is your dream project?

Paige: My dream project is a very massive Webcomic I’m currently working on. If you don’t know, a Webcomic is a genre of comic you can find online that are ongoing stories updated according to the artist’s individual schedule. I’m working on my own story called Adrift; I started it my senior year of High School with near 400 pages as of fall 2018, but recently I’ve scrapped them and I’m starting it all over. I’m still rewriting and fixing some things with the story so I’m not

sure when I’ll start drawing pages for it again, but I’m eager to get it out in the world.

Anzzia: What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

Paige: So far I’ve been managing through my art, and I’d like to keep doing that if I can.

Anzzia: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Paige: “Draw for yourself.” I

think about it the most when creating my work and doing assignments. Of course with commissions, you’re limited to what the client wants, but I still try to shape it into something I’ll enjoy drawing.

It’s important to draw content you are interested in and enjoy doing.

Professionally, what’s your goal?

Probably like everyone else, but my goal is just to be successful and shape my own little spot in the art world.
