Emily J. Moore

 

Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

 

1987, United States, South Dakota (grew up in Kansas City,MO) currently in Denver, CO

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I've always drawn. When I was young  I wanted to draw mermaids and roller blading girls... So I did.

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

I don't have any ties to skateboarding outside of laying down on a deck as a child and rolling down the hill in my neighborhood into traffic and some failed attempts to learn after a couple too many drinks as a 20 something year old.

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

Egon Schiele.

 

When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?

 

Spending time with friends. 

 

Who are your biggest influences?

 

Juxtapoz, HiFructose, Beautiful/decay, Booooooom, Colossal, Fecal Face, Brwnpaperbag, My Love For You, Art Hound, and other art magazines/blogs have been big influences in my life. Much of the art i am drawn(bad pun) to was discovered through these publications or on their web sites. I can't get enough art in my life.

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

All of them. I switch it up often. I get bored easily, so this helps satisfy my wandering eye. Acrylic, watercolor, graphite, ink, found fabric, paper, canvas, oil, coffee... You name it.

 

Anything else you want to tell?

 

Fun fact: You don't actually have to eat your vegetables if you support the arts. ;)
