Mili is an artist that I have respected for a long time, the work that they create has a powerful blend of the cartoon and the realistic. This blend allows for a vivid bloom of emotion to be born from the work, a disconnect from human reality to build towards something deeply personal.
JAG: What is your advice to young creatives?
M: Work hard on channeling your specific creative style. take inspiration from others, but don’t try so hard to make carbon copies of what everyone else is making!
JAG: Do you have any recurring dreams?
M: I actually had a dream journal that I started 2 years ago and recently lost. None of them are really recurring, because of how wild my dreams are.
JAG: What equipment do you use for art?
M: I usually use a huge mixture of things to create. I’ve used markers, colored pencils, crayons, watercolor, and acrylic all in one piece!
JAG: Which piece of your work are you the proudest of?
M: This is the one I’m most proud of! I had the idea for this piece for about a year before I was able to find a way to put it on paper and be satisfied with it.
JAG: Do you have any phobias?
M: hm, I wouldn’t say it’s a phobia but I’ve always really hated bowling ever since I was a kid.
JAG: What emotion seems to appear in your work?
JAG: If you imagined life as a colour? Which one would it be?
M: Lime Green!
JAG: Are you a spiritual person? If so in what way?
M: I don’t think of myself as a spiritual person at all. I believe there’s no real way of knowing if something is out there.
JAG: Do you have any regrets in connection to your art?
M: I think I’ll always regret things when looking at past pieces I’ve made, but that just shows me how much a person is able to grow and change in a small amount of time.
JAG: Why do you create?
M: I do it to give myself an outlet for my thoughts and creative energy! It really relaxes me and helps me feel like I’m a part of something.
