I make about $3,000 a day, and I think it was that much a week ago. But no, I’m not doing this work now. I worked as a designer before, so I was able to do that. But not like this.
My mother, a painter that did house painting for a while, raised me; my father was a painter. I worked in a studio for years, learning how to do whatever worked [for the clients]. And I was a pretty good painter before. So we just got through all that. My mother was also a teacher, doing everything, so I’ve got a great education. You have to get into a school to be able to work in this industry.
When you first came across your art style?
When I saw the video, that’s when I started getting the whole vibe, thinking this could work, that’s my art style. I went to the store I worked at, bought a brush, and went to work on it. So to see that art look like this? I thought, “Okay, this looks cool. It’s not exactly what I want.”
Can you think of any other influences in your work that inspired this style?
What influences me most is just this amazing, wide spectrum of textures. I got a good understanding of how people use paints to create really pretty things, so I had an understanding of that, but the one thing that really helped me get into this was the fact that I’m an artist as well. That allowed me to really connect with it.
You’ve started appearing in music videos now; is there an opportunity to get that out there more often?
Not right off the bat, but yes. It’s so hard to do music videos on your own. But it’s something I want to do, so I’m sure we will come across those opportunities.
You recently did a remix for Pharrell. What made you decide to work with him?
A lot of stuff happened with Pharrell, too. We were playing one time, and he came up and was like “hey, you should be in the video.” And I was like, “Hey, I’ve got my own set of video shoots,” and this and that, so I said, “Yeah, whatever.” I think he liked the video. I did another remix for the video.
What kind of things are you working on at the moment?
