Carrie P.

CARRIE P. has a passion for creating digital art.  This fascination is expressed through a genre of art known as “Fan Art”; which is artwork created by fans of a work of fiction and characters from that work.  Carrie’s inspiration for her work often comes from vintage cartoons.

Carrie has worked in any number of mediums over the years; currently, she is involving herself in sculpture class. “I like sculpting with clay, other times I go digital because it takes the pressure off my hands. Sometimes I’ll work with traditional mediums (pencil, markers or crayons on paper) for a change of pace.”

When asked how long she has been creating art, she explains: “Trying seriously since 2006; 2011 digital.”  When urged to clarify her inspirations, Carrie says, “The themes that most interest me are romance and comedy. I also have a thing for odd pairings: heroes & villains, interspecies & humans, humans & anthros.”  When asked how long it takes to complete a piece of art, Carrie replies, “An hour more or less or so. I don’t usually keep track of time. I take breaks sometimes.” She also said that she likes to work on a big scale and then resize it for online viewing.

Carrie “fansplained” the differences in the fanlore world and fanwork, “Fan Fic is story-related work based on movies, cartoons, etc. Fan Art is the same, but it pertains to drawing.”

Carrie has an extensive catalogue of her art online, sharing her work on multiple Fan Art websites.

Her objective when thinking of her audience is that they find her work to be “… cool, cute, interesting and or funny”.

When not creating art Carrie likes to shop, go to movies or watch TV.
