10 Questions // Jeremy “Hush” Clark : Philadelphia
1. What inspires you these days?
What does not inspire me these days? Adventure, travel, seeing the world. I work with horses and live with all manner of critters. Surround myself with creative people.
I take the good with the bad. Sometimes it seems my most creative moments are when life seems to be falling apart. Other times I’ll come home from a long day of work with an idea that has been rattling around in my head for hours. My pen hits the paper and there is no stopping till the next day or I go cross eyed. That’s a good day.
2. Who are your heroes?
No one comes to mind right now.
3. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Perfect happiness? I’ll have to get back to you on that one.
4. What scares the hell out of you?
Computers and all their tricks.
5. What makes you laugh hard?
Just about everything lately.
6. Who are your favorite artists of all time?
So many… Classics like Albrecht Durer and Bosch were heavy influences on me at a young age. Arthur Rackham keeps me on my toes when devising things with real character. George Pratt taught me more with a two hour demo than 4 years of art school. Barron Storey’s art shows there is no limit to the amount of punishment a drawing can take and still be beautiful. My favorite artists work hands on. Lose themselves in their work and ruin their lives just to create.
7. What is your guiltiest pleasure?
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Eyes that can see in the dark.
9. What’s your favorite thing in the world?
Right now it’s my stolen collection of Holiday Inn ball point pens. By far the best drawing pen to ever have had the misfortune of ending up in my backpack. I run these pens into the ground. They give me the best line quality and textures, which is most important to my way of drawing.
10. What comes to mind when you think of Brooklyn?
Rickety fire escapes, warehouse punk shows, rooftop parties and pyro homeless people. Brooklyn used to be an adventure.
