Coming Together as a Global Community

During these unprecedented times, COVID-19 (coronavirus) has impacted countless lives and left many people around the globe homebound in an attempt to limit the threat of the virus by way of social distancing and quarantine.

Weekly Artist Feature: Qinni

Weekly Artist Feature: Qinni

Each week, we interview a different artist and share their art and featured answers. This week, we wanted to highlight the works of @Qinni, a beloved artist on DeviantArt who recently passed away. @Qinni was one of the first artists we interviewed when we started featuring artists. Her art has been instantly recognizable around the Internet for many years, and the impact her art has had on the online art community is immeasurable. In tribute to @Qinni, her quotes from when we originally interviewed her in 2016 have been included below. I wanted to be a "mangaka" (comic artist) since I was a kid, but always viewed it as a faraway fantasy because my parents were grooming me to be a violinist. When I was young, I was never allowed to draw at home, but I'd doodle on my notebooks in class and homework sheets. Ultimately, I think one of the reasons why my mom relented and let me go into art for college was because of the DeviantArt community and how much love I was given there. In

My Bio

Hey, I'm Nage! :)

[pronounced like words mage, sage or page]

I was 7 years old when I met my best friend shertso. Back then we already loved stories. The unreal stories, the fantasy, the science fiction. The dream world. An escape from reality into an adventure. We wanted to become writers. Book authors.

Now, many years later, we are still in the dream world. But we are not writing stories any more. (Because we're too lazy. Or too busy?) The world forced us to grow up (but we haven't!), get a job and become part of the working society (boo!). The childhood is gone. Or is it? I'm holding onto it with my teeth and claws, while using the grown-up's knowledge to become better at what I love. Art and design.

I finished BA (Hons) Graphic Design at Middlesex University, London in 2018 and in the last year there realised that I loved design that moves. Later I got a job where I photograph, create social media posts and design brochures and marketing material. Since I crave to learn more, I enrolled in the School of Motion course Animation Bootcamp and started animating in 2D in January 2020. I already had some experience in After Effects and Cinema 4D but oh boy! This course is AMAZING and SUPER HARD. :lol: Now, as I'm becoming better at animation, I am looking for new opportunities to create designs that I can move. :) Since I try to network more, you can also find me 'lurking' at those Motion Design meetups in London here and there. ;)
