With the summer fast approaching its end, I few may have been expecting an announcement about an art jam like I have done the past 3 Novembers. At this point, however, I would like to say that this year I will not have the time like I have previously to hold an event that has required a lot of time, effort and planning. I do thank you guys the past few years for helping out and contributing, and encourage those that will be looking for something different this November to keep your eyes peeled for a jam to be held by
around that time. Many thanks for your understanding, and I hope to host a jam sometime next year if things get sorted.
And because everyone and their great aunt have done this, I might as well post my responses to the DA Questionnaire. Enjoy!
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I just celebrated 10 years on here last January, so there's your answer.
2. What does your username mean?
-Agent = My fascination with detective and spy genres when I started drawing comics many years ago.
-C = Middle initial
-24 = My favorite recurring number (I have a few jerseys with that one... And I like the show of the same number)
Oh, and the hyphen's just a hyphen.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Introspective, imperfect, comedic
4. Are you left or right handed?
Always been a righty, probably will stay that way at this point.
5. What was your first deviation?
Oh cripes, my psuedo-realism phase... As well as my age of finding Austin Powers the funniest thing ever. Ten years ago doesn't sound as bad as what everyone says at this point.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Cars n cartoons. I hope that was relatively apparent!
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Backgrounds and/or architecture. It's a part of art that's so overlooked yet so important to the depth of a pic.
8. What was your first favourite?
Amazing that this pic is still here. Looking at this ten years later, it's amazing how he was able to predict how the 2008 Dodge Challenger would look... Instead of the Charger as he called it here.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
-Cartoon gals (top hats or or retro do's optional though welcome, of course).
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
It's hard to really pick a favorite artist at this point. The ones that I'm a huge fan of have known that since I really do like saying it when I am so inspired. All you need to do is look through my gallery and faves to see who and what has inspired me over time.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Much like the last question, those that I would like to meet one day know that already. I admit I'm a terrible traveller, so I cannot ever really guarantee any meetups for the forseeable future.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Right around summer of '07, I was a psuedo-anime artist who had enough of drawing that and Pixar Cars ripoffs. Around the time I was just about ready to abandon my account, I accidentally bumped into
via the frontpage... And the cartoons and stories since then have been plentiful ever since with the friends and fans I've met since then.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
My Wacom Bamboo and GIMP art program have been my trusty utensils of choice for at least 5+ years now. I do wish I did more traditional work, but the costs and clutter can add up.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
More often than not, it's my room or the living room. When I'm out, I'm more likely soaking up inspiration than interpreting it.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Many a good laugh and meaningful conversation with plenty of friends through the years. The past 2 years of holding November art jams and having a number of different artists who represented many different facets of what I enjoyed about DA show up to help out. It's been mostly a pleasure through the thick and thin.
