Introducing: fancyQUACKS





"The process of art is an escapist trait we use to detach ourselves from reality or simply life. In communicating this escapism to people outside of our worlds is an intimate gesture and wonderful gift. It’s an unspoken arrangement between artists and appreciators. It’s a quest of introspection for us to reflect on ourselves in response to art."

- puddlefisher in Issue no.1: Imaginary Friends and Foes
Issue no.2 out soon!

Fun Facts:
Chris' quest of all quests was embarked during his formative years when he first learned to use what was almost certainly a ''Staedtler'' HB grade pencil. Since then every shenanigan to do with his expression through pictorial description has been a product of holding that unsuspectingly pivotal pencil - totally equivalent to the first time Harry held a wand (yes, he instantly became windswept as the pencil illuminated in his hand). Like Harry, Chris had to find the perfect companion through which he would find means to achieve his ambitions - currently, this is a Cintiq 13HD (double unicorn hair).

Digital art has since been of tremendous passion of Chris since discovering the medium after countless instances of discarding the notion of ''digital'' art being having been taught through very traditional means. Deviating from these strict criteria and disapproving monkeys tutors, he learned quickly that he must fight to enter the ever-expanding, fast-developing world of digital illustration.

More stuff:
Things that are not 'true to life' is a notion that informs the work of puddlefisher tremendously, due to his experiences of 'psychosis' that creates abstractions of reality in itself. He therefore values and identifies with the escapism of the worlds that he creates and the characters that he becomes within them and quotes, "Once you’re in control of your own monsters it’s easy to appreciate them and show them to the world."

To volunteer or cookies?
I'm privileged to volunteer, it takes a (typically repeated) application process. As for cookies, I'm all out! :shrug:
