Featured Project: 36 Days of Type by Daniel Aristizábal

Typography Art Daniel Aristizábal
About the project:
36daysoftype was a project started in Barcelona by Rafa Goicoechea and Nina Sans, they invited designers and artist to come up with their own interpretation of the alphabet. Each of the 36 days you were supposed to create a letter. I took the chance to experiment with different syles and techniques. I love colors and retro stuff in general, so i wanted to create illustrated alphabet with a colorful retro vibe.

Artist Interview: Tory Van Wey – Illustrator & Paper-cutter

Tory Van Wey Papercut ArtTell us about yourself, who are you, where are you from, and what do you do?
Howdy! I’m Tory Van Wey, an illustrator, artist, and gardener. I originally hail from Palo Alto, California (Silicon Valley to the rest of the world), but am currently based out of San Francisco’s Mission District where I live, do business, tend gardens, and make art.

Tory Van Wey Papercut ArtHow did you get started doing what you do?
As cliche as it sounds, I have to file myself into the category of having “always been into art.” In school I would excel at anything creative or hands on, while leaving the more theoretical subjects woefully lacking, so art became a bit of a hedge for my less than stellar academic and social performance. I couldn’t will myself to pay attention in Geometry, but I could always feel confident and surrounded by likeminded folks in the art room. So… I rolled with it.

I studied Art and Design in college and suddenly school became a pleasurable experience, but my pragmatic side told me to focus on graphic design instead of fine art, even though I always felt like a bit of an imposter in the graphic design world. In a lot of ways I credit my schooling in design for making me the kind of artist I am today; obsessed with composition, balance, and boundary.
After the emotional spin cycle of young adulthood, and years of mentally throwing every career at the wall to see what stuck, I discovered that I had never really left the art room, and, more importantly, I didn’t want to leave the art room. After that it was a lot of small steps towards embracing the title of “artist,” and starting the journey of making it a career.

Tory Van Wey Papercut ArtHow would you describe your style?
My work precariously straddles the chasm between art and graphic design and I am forever trying to keep the pendulum from swinging too far in one direction or the other because I like it best right in the middle. The common threads through my work are finely detailed linework, organic patterns, and natural elements coupled with brightly contrasting colors, everyday objects, and balanced graphic composition. I also like to get a little cheeky and incorporate humor or lightness into my pieces. Art can be so damned serious.

Tory Van Wey Papercut ArtHow have your surroundings influenced your work?
Apart from working as an illustrator, I also work as a gardener, and as much as I try to compartmentalize my two identities, they are quite intimately linked. I find my mind wandering back to the old writing adage “write what you know,” and, to be honest, what I know these days are not the typical creative muses of heartbreak, or longing, but mulch, seedlings, fog, ferns, patterns, and vines. In that way I am drawing what I know everyday, and while heartbreak and longing make some cameos in my work, it’s really abundance, organic life, and balance that take center stage.

Tory Van Wey Papercut ArtWhat, if anything, would you tell your younger self?
Ha! I would tell myself to chill out about trying to find the perfect socially responsible career. That in the long run you will come back to what it is you are supposed to be doing with your life, and that you don’t have to save the world to justify your existence. Just make it better in your own way.

Tory Van Wey Illustration ArtWhat’s the best advice you’ve been given?
A piece of advice that has stuck with me lately was actually not given to me, but to my boyfriend as a kid. When the topic of careers came up his father said “find something you love to do, and then find the people willing to pay you to do it.”

It’s easy to tell people “follow your bliss,” and leave it at that, but the truth is that leaves out half of the equation. Not everyone is going to want what you’re selling but chances are someone will and the most important part of your job is to find them.

Any words of wisdom to aspiring artists who want to pursue a similar career?
Get in touch with people that inspire you and whose careers make you jealous, no matter how untouchable they seem to be. Tell them that they inspire you and buy them a cup of coffee if they are local. Convert that jealousy into sincere support. Don’t be afraid to tell people that you want to be where they are one day, they may just help you get there.

Tory Van Wey Illustration ArtHave any future aspirations that you’d like to share?
I would love to start licensing my work for use on high quality, sustainable products, gain more ground in the editorial illustration community, and have a solo gallery show.

What’s your dream project?
To design an ornately illustrated typographic poster series or art book. There are very few things that make my eyes go googlier than a beautiful typographic series. I also have an idea for a higher quality art centric women’s apparel line so any fashion designers that want to collaborate, get in touch!

Artist Interview: Stephanie K. Clark – Embroidery Artist

Stephanie K. ClarkTell us about yourself, who are you, where are you from, and what do you do?
My name is Stephanie K. Clark. I was born in Portland Oregon, and raised in Urbana, Missouri.  I currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I am an embroidery artist… I’m a painter and I paint with thread.

How did you get started doing what you do?
I’ve always had a passion for art and being creative in whatever life gives me for as long as I can remember.  My love for craft runs deep in my veins.  Even though I loved cultivating my hand at art during my high-school years, I never really thought of pursuing art as something other than a simple hobby; that fire to create didn’t really spark until I got to college.  Even then, I went to college to become an art teacher and thought, “Well, if I’m going to be teaching art I might as well be a decent artist”.  I never really saw myself as a gallery artist; that path has just fallen into my lap and I’ve fallen in love.  After my first offer to show in a real gallery in downtown Salt Lake City, I craved it.  I have to thank to my professors at the University of Utah who pushed me to create more than just a pretty picture and to have meaning in my work; I was able to really embrace and create conceptual art.

I majored in painting and drawing so my background in what I do now with the embroidery comes from those experiences in painting and drawing. It started when I took a drawing class one semester my junior year, the professor gave us the option to work with whatever medium we wanted. I wanted to take a break from painting. I had just gotten a new sewing machine that year, so I decided to do all my drawings on my sewing machine. Doing thread drawings then inspired embroidery and from then on I was hooked.

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtHow would you describe your style?
My style in my work I feel is a unique, cozy, eclectic, contemporary take on an old craft with a simple concept concerning life in the home. My work is an ode and influenced by the worlds of tapestry and my love for craft. My work blurs the lines between fine art and craft. I’d like to think I can reclaim the word “craft” which contains the idea of an unusual frame of knowledge and skill passed on from generation to generation.  I can’t tell you how many times my art has stirred up all kinds of arguments. Is it a fine art or a craft? I’d like to think I’m a rebel in the art world.

I once was told my work was described as “quiet and tranquil needlework …touch it and can you feel the warm and sweet in them”.  I love it and I would use that to describe my work.

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtWhat’s your inspiration?
I grew up on a farm in a very small town in Missouri. Growing up poor and in such a small town, it forced me to be creative.  My twin sister and I used to explore the forests and old abandon farm homes. I used to sing out loud, like Snow White, in hopes that the little critters would come play with me (never happened).  My mother would never buy us Barbie furniture or clothes for our Barbie’s so we spent hours creating these “extravagant” homes for our dolls. I was always finding inspiration and ways to create in my life through my surroundings. I really do give a lot of inspirational credit to where I grew up within my work. Even to where I live now, I’m always finding people, places, and things that inspire me to do something creatively. With my Dwelling series, I use a lot of Americana style Architecture, because that’s what I am most familiar with. I used images from everywhere I’ve been in my life.  From my home town in MO I used tailors and farm houses. I even used old Victorian homes from St. Louis, MO.  I live in the Avenues in Salt Lake City, UT and I’m always inspired by the homes in that area.

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtWhat is art to you?
Art to me is creating or arranging elements in a way that influences and affects the senses, emotions, and or intellect. I think creating art stirs things up deep in your being and allows you to place your imagination outside your mind. I think for the creative person creating art is a desired need. It’s expressing myself personally or it’s telling a story to teach others by documenting a place and time in history.

How do you keep motivated?
Every time I’m asked that question I never know to answer it. Motivation to create is just in me. It’s a feeling I’ve always had and I can’t describe it, other than when I create I get this satisfaction/high after seeing my creation; it’s that same warm feeling you get when you’ve done something nice for someone. It’s just in me to seek that feeling.

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtWhat do you hope to accomplish with your work?
First I seek satisfaction in my work. If I don’t like it then I’m not happy creating. I love the problem solving- through playing with the materials, discoveries are made. Which leads to that warm satisfaction/sense of accomplishment feeling I’m seeking. I grew up being a right brain thinker, learning in the conventional way was hard for me. School was hard for me, etc… being creative was the way I learned and expressed myself. So creating is the only way I have found success in my life.

Second, the concept in my work is important in order for my work to communicate. The use of craft such as embroidery fits my concept of domesticity, therefore, my process and material becomes involved in the concept of my work.

Finally, constant evolvement. I’m constantly coming up with ideas how to push a concept further and how I can execute it visually on the canvas with thread. I have sketch books with ideas and inspirations. It’s a constant daily thing that’s always happening everywhere I go. I don’t allow myself to get bored with an idea/concept.  If I feel it’s over-done, it will retired and I will be ready to evolve to the next.

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtWhat do you want others to take away from your work?
Visually, I love it when people bypass my work thinking it’s nothing other than a simple painting. Until they look a little closer and see that in fact it is fibers/thread. Then they have to proceed to look even closer and look into the windows of the home. I like to push my viewers to then question whose home is this? What kind of people live in this home? They then start to come up with a person and a story to that home. Sometimes it will even spark memories of their home and who they are. Then those little embroidered homes on the walls become portraits of people the viewers have created.

What, if anything, would you tell your younger self?
Keep creating and fulfilling your love for art and be confident in doing so.

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtWhat’s the best advice you’ve been given?
One of my dearest Professors, artist Sam Wilson, told us (a small class of young, eager upcoming artist): “The world doesn’t want you to create, and we don’t want to be spectators. Keep creating, you Art Majors. I only make 30k a year for teaching, but I do it so ‘they’ wont take creation away from me.”

Any words of wisdom to aspiring artists who want to pursue a similar career?
While attending a lecture by the one and only dearest Artist Christo, he stated: “Always create gentle disturbance in your art.”  Love those words!!

Also, my husband once told me: “You have to constantly be evolving in your work, if you don’t then your Thomas Kinkade” (no offense to the T.Kinkade lovers out there.)

Stephanie K. Clark Embroidery ArtWhat are your thoughts on art school?
Art school is not for everyone but as for me personally I wouldn’t be where I am today as an artist if it weren’t for art school.  To be honest Art School not only helped me in my academic skills of “how to paint” but more than anything it helped me learn critical thinking and “what to paint.” and what I want my art to say and how to talk about my art (aka the art of BSing). Most of all, opportunity came knocking at my door while attending school and being in the “Art World” surrounded by other artists. Putting myself in the art world I was able to get familiar with other artist, and if there’s one thing you will learn in the art world….NETWORKING is key. It’s a benefit in who you know and how to get in those galleries, etc.  Also surrounding yourself in an art community is key to helping your art evolve; having that constant support, critiques, and connections are important.

What’s your dream project?
Ha the answer to this question will always be changing. But for me most of all would be to create a collaborated piece with my sculptor artist husband Robin Clark…. Eat your hearts out Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

Artist Interview: Ruth Chase – Charcoal Artist and Teacher

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseTell us about yourself, who are you, where are you from, and what do you do?
OK, I go by Ruth Chase. My life has had many different plot changes along the way. I was raised in Venice Beach, CA by my mother, mostly, who had very little education, didn’t drive and we had to move a lot. To escape the future that had my name on it, I applied to three of the best art schools in the US taken from a list at the public library. I wasn’t aware of my creativity at the time, but I thought art school was something that I could do since my primary education was so poor. The only thing I wanted was to go to college, any place that would take me would do so I could have an education and a better life than my mother had. That is what I did. At the age of 21 I moved to San Francisco and interviewed at the San Francisco Art Institute and I was accepted into the painting department with my drawing portfolio, right there in the interview. Funny, I had never even picked up a paintbrush outside of preschool but I was determined to do it.

Cut to now, I have a nine year old daughter who I, in part, homeschool, and I also teach art and show my work mostly in the USA. I still oil paint; however, the recent series in charcoal, Becoming a Better Sinner has been something I never saw coming after taking a slow work break to raise a child.

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseHow would you describe your style?
Urban surrealism or contemporary surrealism. Sounds good to me.

What’s your inspiration?
Theology, belief systems, and neurology really turn me on. And as it turns out, this is what my art is about too.

What is art to you?

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseHow do you keep motivated?
I mostly read books about my favorite topics and listen to music. I love all types of music, my favorite being Latin jazz especially from Mongo Santarmaria and Ibraham Ferrer, Give me Héctor Lavoe and I completely transcend into another space all together. The problem is it can also distract me from my work because I’m dancing as much as I’m working.

How have your surroundings influenced your work?
My work is all about my surroundings, past, present and future perceptions of them.

What do you hope to accomplish with your work?
I have nothing to accomplish with my work; however, in teaching art I hope to offer life changing opportunities.

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseHow have others reacted to your work?
People mostly love or hate my work. I have grown to appreciate those reactions. I don’t make art to please the eye as much as I make art to speak up about what’s going on in my inner world. When someone has a visceral reaction in either direction then I know I’ve been real and it’s showing in my work.

What do you want others to take away from your work?
Anything they want. Art speaks to people, even when they don’t care for it. It pulls at their emotional strings. Whatever that is, I dig it.

What, if anything, would you tell your younger self?
Don’t hold back in your work. And by all means learn a creative trade that won’t mess with your head so you can feed yourself when your art isn’t selling.

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseWhat’s the best advice you’ve been given?
“The best teacher you will ever have is yourself asking the right questions” I live by this.

Any words of wisdom to aspiring artists who want to pursue a similar career?
The greatest gift you have to give your art is yourself. Don’t entertain thoughts that hold you back from being in the moment of whatever comes out of you in any way, shape or form. Let yourself be surprised by what you’re capable of.

What are your thoughts on art school?
Art school didn’t teach me how to be an artist. What it did teach me was how to be a critical thinker and what it was like to be in a group of like-minded people and feel normal.

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseHave any future aspirations that you’d like to share?
Hell Yeah!

I started teaching my classes at retreats and I’m looking forward doing more of them.

I am ready to get into the mix with all I have to give. A few international exhibitions would be AWESOME!!

What’s your dream project?
It would be so magnificent to have a public installation of my work anywhere in the world. Something that would take some time and would last. If you know of anything, feel free to call or text me, 530.409.2330. I’ll also except pigeon mail service.

Illustration by artist, Ruth ChaseWhat art supplies do you use?
Wood or paper with vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, clear coat.

Any other artists that you would like to recommend for others to check out as well?
A few of my recent favorites are:
Lyle Carbajal
Marion Lane
Milton Resnick
Agnes Martin

What Artists Think – To Go to Art School or Not to?

Should you go to art school?
Illustration by Casey Webb

Though education is very valuable, traditional schooling is not the best learning environment for everyone. To each their own and, therefore, there’s no definite answer on whether or not one should or shouldn’t go to art school. However, there are a lot of factors to consider when deciding if it’s right for you and it never hurts to hear different perspectives on the issue.

We revisited past interviews of artists previously featured on Jung Katz in search for how they answered the question: “What are your thoughts on art school?” and curated a list of the ones we found the most informational.

‘Getting a degree from an art school has its advantages. Art school gives you a lot, it gives you the tools to actually make art, it also allows you to experiment with a wide variety of media and techniques. You also immerse yourself in a community that supports and understands art.

But there is also a downside to art school, It is too easy to be influenced by teachers and fellow students, that can make it more difficult for you to find your true self as an artist. In the long run it is your talent and originality as an artist that will get you through this business.’

-Painter, Leticia Banegas

‘I have always been jealous of people who study art, because I only discovered/accepted it into my life so recently, and my university courses have very little to do with it. With that said, the only benefit of art school is networking and technical ability. You can’t teach somebody to be an artist, you can’t even teach somebody to express him or herself…all that stuff comes from within. But if you want to be hired by some shitty restaurant to make some shitty canvases to pay for your shitty apartment, maybe it’s worthwhile. If you want to become an artist… just be one. That’s what I did. I woke up one day and decided: “Today I am an artist.” And if it’s true to you then that’s all that matters. A piece of paper won’t serve as any kind of  proof, and as a matter of fact if that’s what you use to justify the title ‘artist’…. then you may not yet be one.’

-Photographer, Charles Mackenzie

‘Art school works only if you work for it. Too many people go into art school thinking “I’ll just do what’s asked, get a decent grade and then I’ll be an illustrator”. It’s a dream within a dream. If you don’t push and expose yourself to new things, you’ll graduate with a similar portfolio that you came in with. In the illustration business no one cares about how you came out with a 1st Class degree with Honours from so-and-so university. Also, use all of the facility available to you – after university access to a laser cutter/printing press etc is going to be hard to come by and expensive. You can learn so much from technicians and it is in your interest to take some time to get to know them. The print room technician was like a second mum to me and we still stay in touch.’

-Illustrator, Ken Iizuka

‘Pretty much a waste of money. Experiences with people you meet are priceless. Connections are alright but not great at my art school but I know some schools are better about Alumni/ Undergrad relations. I would say in America they may not be worth it if you have the drive to succeed.’

-Illustrator, Llew Mejia

‘I came out of the National School of Fine Arts of Paris, and the practice department, was great, where you could try all the techniques that you could not do on your own, like mosaic, forge, etc.  Receiving advice from other students and of course opening your view to other’s work was great as well.’

-Embroidary artist, Julie Sarloutte

‘Art school helped give me a space and environment to produce. It was useful in the sense that all I really needed to focus on was my work and trying new techniques and approaches. It was harmful in the sense that it forces one to over-think natural inklings that could challenge one to get better.’

-Painter, Jonathan McAfee

‘Art at A-Level was a soul destroying experience. I felt it killed off some of my creativity and made me extremely uptight with the work I was producing. I was probably unlucky with where I was, but I felt if I stuck to their generic criteria for too long – I’d lose all sense of identity with my work. A-Levels were not for me, but things changed when I entered an actual art college which was equipped with some of the most inspiring teachers I’ve ever known. They knew how to handle aspiring artists individually, and would encourage experimental behavior within illustration. The whole thing was really refreshing and I felt I was learning something valuable, which still stays with me. Art College really prepared me for University, where I started to develop my visual language a lot more and make connections. The teachers were so wise and crazy, and I felt very honored to be a part of it. I’ve generally had a great experience within education, and was lucky enough to study at some great institutions.’

-Illustrator, Sophie Filomena

‘Art schools can only provide the environment, equipments and professors who can guide us. But it would be foolish to think that just by attending an art school we’ll become a better designer/artist. The motivation has to come from within the person attending an art school. I’ve met a lot of brilliant designers/artists who’ve never attended art school. And I’ve also met people who have spent a lot of money in art school without the willingness to learn.’

-Graphic Designer, Shantanu Suman

‘I think studying something that you are really interested is never a waste of time. At the same time you have to find your own way.’

-Photographer, Marton Gosztonyi

‘I say go to it, you’d be surprised what you learn there. It’s really handy in finessing your technique and for what you want to in the future. I’ve also learned so much about printing and getting work and experiments done. Also there is loads of fun resources in my university which has Screen printing, Laser cutting, Risograph printers for example.’

-Illustrator, Marc Burnett

‘I honestly think its a good thing. It really depends on not just the school but the professors themselves. Because art is considered a subjective thing you’ll be getting a lot of conflicting ideologies but that is a good thing for a budding artist and I feel that gives you more of an idea on what kind of artist you want to be.’

-Illustrator, Eric Fabbro

‘It sounds fun. I haven’t gone. I went to a public high school with an arts focus. It was a great experience. From what I understand the value in art school is in the connections you make there. Any way you slice it you got to put in the hours if you want to be good.’

-3 Diminesional artist, Tripper Dungan

‘I think a solid education is great, and if you have the opportunity to go to school, you should. Your experiences throughout life are a wonderful way of learning, but school is that extra cherry on top. Everyone is different, though, some people may be perfectly fine without it.’

-Photographer, Cara Harman

When deciding if art school is right for you, ask yourself these questions: Do you learn best in a school environment or on your own? What are you hoping to gain from school and could you still gain it otherwise? What resources do you have and what resources do you need? Which sounds scarier: a mountain of debt, or taking on all of the responsibilities of educating yourself? Do you have a plan as to how you would teach yourself, let alone figure out what it is you need to be learning to be successful? What’s your plan for after you graduate school and how would that differ from your plan if you decide not to go to school?

Feel free to also ask other artists, maybe reach out to your favorites ones on social media and ask them where they went and if they’d recommend it.

Regardless, with great imagination and drive, you can succeed either way. So be honest with yourself and what it is that you’re capable of and what it is you need help with. Whether you choose to go to school or not, we at Jung Katz are here for you and will continue to post informational content such as this to help you succeed as an artist.

Artist Interview: Mark Bern – Digital Pixel Curator

Digital pixel art by arists, Mark BernToday we’d like to welcome digital pixel artist, Mark Bern to Jung Katz…

How did you get started doing what you do?
For the past 20 years, I have been investigating the methodology of digital image processing. In my early days as a teenager I explored the possibilities of image manipulation on my first computer, a Commodore 64.

How would you describe your style?
My art reflects the modern digital zeitgeist of today’s generation. It is abstract and gaudy.

Digital pixel art by arists, Mark BernWhat’s your inspiration?
Nature and its power, but mainly life with its various facets.

What is art to you?
Art is a unique way to express the essence of all interactions in life.

Digital pixel art by arists, Mark BernHow have your surroundings influenced your work?
Back in the ’90s as a teenager I used a computer to start my own internet company at the age of 19. I was surrounded by geeks, hackers and other innovators in the field of information technology. Back then computers were not really part of our lives and I was fascinated to create art with new electronic tools.

Digital pixel art by arists, Mark BernHow long does it typically take for you to finish a piece?
There are several working steps to take. From the empty screen to the final art piece, it can take a few days up to a few weeks.

What do you hope to accomplish with your work?
I strive to bring digital and computer based art to reality and therefore create an impact into real life.

Digital pixel art by arists, Mark BernWhat’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Stay focused and listen to your gut.

What’s your dream project?
It would be an honor to produce an individual and unique art piece for computer or internet entrepreneurs with a huge impact on life and society like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg or the Google founders, Larry Page and Sergei Bryn.
