Blog Tour: Ink Blotted Beka

Hello dudes and dudettes.

I witnessed a miracle today.

I survived to Friday.

Tis no smol deal to survive until Friday (especially on weeks like this). But I made it.

I’d say that I’m telling you this to encourage you. That it’s okay to have rough days. But I would be lying. BECAUSE TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH I REALLY JUST WANT TO BE PITIED TODAY IS THAT SO BAD????

*smooths hair*

*straightens shirt*

Ahem. Pardon my semi-crazy state. It has been an *interesting week.

 

*And by interesting I mean……..you know.

 

ANYWAYS.

I’m up here today to have a talented artist up here who is starting a business. We sat down with some coffee (in an electronic, metaphorical way) and did an interview with her.

Her name is Beka and she is starting up her new business, Ink Blotted Beka!

And without further ado, le interview!

 

How did you start getting into drawing and art?

Good question! I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. I used to write stories and illustrate them on the back of spare sheets of paper my mom would bring home from her work. But in my first or second year of university, I came across Anne Elisabeth Stengl’s Tales of Goldstone Wood book series. I got into the fandom, and through the years, drawing fan art for her stories really strengthened my skills. I’ve come a long way just by being a fan artist and encountering other fantastic artists whose skills helped me realize I had a lot of work to do and helped motivate me to get better.

 

Where do you get your inspiration for your art?

From books I read mostly, and from my own writing. I’m not much into drawing realism, though I do dabble in it now and then.

 

What has been your favorite artwork you’ve ever done?

Such a tough question! I don’t know if I can point out one “favourite” piece “to rule them all” so to speak, but I’m particularly proud of the colouring on my Isabella fan art for WR Gingell’s book MASQUE.

 

How do you feel artists can glorify God through their art?

Another fantastic question! I think part of it is by bringing joy to others. I hope that I glorify God by bringing joy to other writers through the art work I send them. As many other creatives have acknowledged, our world can be a lonely one. So I hope that just by seeking out connection with others through art, I can especially encourage Christian writers.

 

Where do you hope your art will take you?

Hmmm, I don’t know if I have any specific “plans” or “goals” for this little writing business. I hope I can make new friends through it, strengthen my skills even further, get some commissions. I have a lot more to learn, and hopefully I can learn by doing! 😀

 

Amazing answers, Beka!

Beka hails from the Great White North (aka Canada), where she reads, dreams, and doodles away.
