What’s the ultimate goal for your art? And what are your professional aspirations?
To make people happy. I really want people to enjoy what I make and not overanalyze it too much. I want them to see past the greater meaning of the work and just enjoy the moment. And professionally speaking, one day I aspire to work in the animation department for Adult Swim.
Do you have any advice for anyone who wants to get into illustration and animation, specifically in Atlanta?
Keep making art, translate your work into a professional and clean-looking portfolio, and network. Networking and making an effort to spread your work is really important in general but especially in a large city.
Where can people find your art and what socials can people follow to keep up with your work?
My official portfolio and my instagram (@cigarrettatl).
Any last words?
Art should be fun to make, don’t ever let it get in the way of your health, and always be good to the people you work with.
