An Interview with Sunshine

Interview with Sunshine

(Conducted over veggie burgers and spicy rice and fries at a really good fast food joint.)

 Mikey: What inspired you to draw Siren and Fallen Angel?

Sunshine: I was in a dark and gloomy mood and drawing my favourite mythical creatures makes that mood go away. The Siren started as a mermaid but I wanted something that made it darker, so I added the shipwreck and the mermaid became a siren instead.

Mikey: Where do you get your ideas for your drawings?

Sunshine: I read stories like “The Teenage Life of a Siren” and “Percy Jackson” and the “Sinbad“ stories. The idea for the Fallen Angel came from reading the “Fallen Angel” series.  I like the idea that the angel makes a mistake but they have the opportunity for a second chance.

Mikey: So it seems as if reading a good story has helped inspire you to make your art work.

Sunshine: Yes it has.

  The lovely tulip in with the basil is another craft that Sunshine is tackling. Way back in the dark ages, when I went to school, I don’t remember having the option of taking woodwork. It was home economics all the way, which I really didn’t like. Weird that I have tried to sew, and enjoy the knitting and spinning so much as an adult. Back then I wanted to break away from all the so – called domestic arts, and the thought of handling saws and chunks of wood appealed. Way to go Sunshine, the tulip is a great piece for my tiny garden, and I love the work you put into it.

    I like the artwork. Whoever the artist is they must be a professional! Keep up the good work and if the artwork doesn’t work out you can always try cooking!!! I took homec once in school. Made a loaf of bread…. hard as a rock!!! Was good for throwing at people.
