Mar 1 Mar 1 Josefine Svärd aka wildwither Omule Interviews, Illustrations Instagram Omule : Hi Josefine, how would you describe your style? Josefine : Plain and simple – stippling and linework. Omule : Where do you get your inspiration from? Josefine : Everything. Mostly from the nature and from things I like. Omule : What is your ideal creative environment? Josefine : Cosy, candles, some snacks, music or a braindead series in the background. And just sitting and drawing, forgetting time. Omule : Five things you can’t live without. Josefine : My family, my phone, blankets, my hair straightener and my dogs. Omule : Do you have any kind of creative patterns and routines? Josefine : None. I can only draw and create when I’m in the mood for it, or I get the feeling or ”flow”. No project is the same! Omule : What kind of books and movies do you like? Josefine : Fantasy! I am in love with all Harry Potter stuff, the books, the movies, the new movies, theories, everything! I love it! Omule : What superpower would you like to have and why? Josefine : Flying. I don’t really know why.. I have been dreaming about flying ever since I was a kid. To just be able to fly away and feel the air under you.. The freedom.. Would be so amazing! Omule : What do you like the most about your work ? Josefine : I guess it’s the same for all artists, but I rarely get happy with my work. Or.. I’m happy with it but I never really love my own work. But I guess that is what makes us better as artists. But if there is one thing I would say I like it’s the feeling in most of my designs. The calm. Omule : What is your favourite kind of project? Josefine : Landscapes, fan work (like Harry Potter, Lord of the rings etc.) Omule : What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Josefine : Love what you do, and people will love the things you do. Omule : What would you say to young/aspiring artists, to help them improve and find their way? Josefine : Pactise, practise, practise. There is no shortcuts, no videos, no books or courses you can take or develop or improve as an artist. The one and only thing that can help you get better and find your own style, is picking up the pen and draw. PRACTISE. Nothing else.
