Google is your best source for answers here haha. xDHow old were you when you started drawing?
I started drawing at an early age, but starting drawing seriously when I was about 14 or so.What is your art education? Are you self-taught?
I got a GCSE in Fine Art when I finished high school, and about a year and a half's basic animation... other than that I am an uneducated hack. u_u And yes... I'm not really much to be proud of, I'm bad at studying in a classroom as I get bored and distracted. I have to learn in my own free time, at my own pace (which is pretty much 'skip everything boring, work on what you want to, haha.)Do you have any advice for beginners/improvement?
Since I still consider myself very much both of these things I'll just say daily practice and life drawing helps me a LOT.
Also, try to work outside of your comfort zone and draw whatever you feel comes naturally.You draw a lot of fanart / you draw fanart of so many different things!
Y-yeah... I love drawing fanart of whatever has my interest at the moment. It's my way of channeling my love and obsession for whatever it is into something productive, and it becomes a sort of... personal time capsule of my fandom history. XD I rarely stay in a fandom for more than a year...Who are your influences and inspirations?
On the internet: Just browse through my friends list.
In general: This is a bit outdated, but it's a basic depiction of my inspirations and such [link]Are you a professional artist?
Nope... Where do you live?
Currently marooned on the Isle of Wight, UK...Why do you draw yourself looking like a Moomin / with little bumps on your head?
I overheard someone saying I looked like a Moomin, I don't know what they meant by that but I agree... thus Mumintroll me was born. Are you going to publish any books/art? / Are you going to attend any UK conventions?
Soon... maybe... in the distant future... How old are you?
I was born July 4th 1989 (you do the math! ;D *cries*)Are you planning to go to school?
I don't think I will, as I said before I don't like being in a school learning environment very much. I don't cope well with lots of writing and assignments.
However, if had the money and the means I would love to go to CalArts. It's been my dream for years... u_uAre you planning on a career in art?
I honestly can't say for sure what I want to do yet!
