Lana Crooks is the fifth member of Light Grey Art Lab‘s 2016 Iceland Residency: Team Mist to volunteer to be introduced. Previous interviews are all linked on this post: Iceland.

K: What lights you up about what you do?

Lana: I enjoy trying to figure out shapes and patterns and new way to build forms. I spend a lot of time researching so it makes me feel like I am unwrapping mysteries. I started out as an illustrator so I still like to bring some narrative into the works as well.

K: Do you have an example?

Lana: Snake oil was a piece for an exhibit called Zealots Elixir at Modern Eden, It was my first attempt at a snake skeleton. Each vertebrae is 7 individual pieces of fabric so it is a pretty good example of translating the flat to the 3D.

Introducing Team Mist: Betsy Bauer

Betsy Bauer is the fourth member of Light Grey Art Lab‘s 2016 Iceland Residency: Team Mist to volunteer to be introduced. Previous interviews are all linked on this post: Iceland.

K: What lights you up about what you do?

Betsy: I think creating concept artwork for animation is particularly exciting because you see your ideas realized by other artists.  It’s so rewarding to see a character or prop that I have designed translated into 3D by the modeling and surfacing departments.  Animation is such a collaborative medium!

K: Do you have an example?

Betsy: This isn’t really a great example of what I’m talking about because it’s hard to show that, but I do really like this image. :).

K: What lights you up about what you do?

Jared: What I enjoy most about my work is the feeling I get from seeing my vision come to life and take shape on paper.
K: Do you have an example?
Jared: I’ve attached an image of me working on a piece that I suppose could fit with the above response (ink, graphite, and gold leaf on claybord)

Nicole: I love it when I lay out  gouache paint in little dots on my paint pallet…and they look like the most delicious candy. I get excited every time I see those little dots and can’t wait to paint.
