interview with Desu limestall
Desu Limestall is a 24 year old who lives in Seatlle Washingon and who has been drawing all her life. Although she has taken a few art classes, she is mostly self taught. We discovered her work while surfing some sites and loved the cute characters she has created.
Your greatest inspirations or influences?
Music, my friends, other artists and fashion are my greatest influences.
Japanese gyaru fashion magazines like Egg and Ageha have been inspiring me a lot lately.
I've always been a big fan of Rose Besch, aka Bara-chan
and lately I really like Kora Kosicka's (http://kgwa.deviantart.com/) artwork.
Favorite websites? I don't know if I consider them favorites, but as far as most often viewed go, when I'm on the computer I'm usually checking deviantArt, Ebay, Etsy and livejournal.
Projects you have planned for the rest of the year?
I'm writing and planning out two comics and I'm working on some traditional media pieces that will hopefully be displayed in Seattle later this year.
Challenges of what you do?
There's always the challenges I set for myself, which is mostly just improving myself. Mastering new techniques, programs or media.
What would be a dream project for you?
Having unlimited media resources, like piles and piles of paint and canvas. Even though a lot of my work is digital there's just something about working with traditional media that can't be beat.
Favorite cultural hotspots in your opinion?
Almost anywhere in Seattle. I personally love going to the Japanese style crepe shop in the international district.
Dream dinner guest would be.....?
Off the top of my head I'm going to go with Mc Chris, just because I think he'd be super fun to hang out with.
