As both an artist and musician, do you ever find that your art influences your own music, or vice versa?

Yeah all the time, I spread my time equally between my artwork and music, if I feel “stuck” for ideas I’ll sit and play my guitar for an hour or so, that way I’m constantly creating, and sometimes Ill even find a note or progression will inspire an idea.  In the end its all creative so they tie together perfectly.

 A number of your pieces depict futuristic landscapes / characters, and bring to mind the visuals of Ridley Scott’s “Bladerunner”, as well as some hints of H.R Gieger’s distinct style. Does their work, or indeed any other sci-fi, provide inspiration for any of your pieces?

I love sci fi because of the aspect of exploration, its so open to the artist to explore ideas, and because space is HUGE I often like to depict that in my work, by using larger scale environments that almost overwhelm the viewer to show this sense of scale.


Giger isn’t a direct influence, but his work definitely inspired artists that I’m directly influenced from. Alex Ruiz is a massive one for me, you can see the connection between these artists but what captured me was the use of shapes and chaos, then carefully selected colours to show gorgeous depth and I could stare at his pieces for hours on end really. I’m still learning and developing with every piece I do, which is why I’m so interested in futuristic landscapes, I never start with a set idea I just follow my brush and use large shapes and use exploration to find my way to a finished piece.

Your portraits are very striking and captivating - Is this an area you have focused on developing in particular? Portraits are seen as a challenge by many, and as such, were there any particular elements of portraiture found (or still find) challenging?

Yeah portraits have always interested me, you can gather a lot of information by simply looking at someone face and studying an expression. I have worked very hard on looking more at emotions before looking into how to go about doing portraits from a technical view, I spent time doing very rapid studies of facial expressions.
I still find them extremely challenging, I will often go through half a dozen sketches before settling down on one , I get plenty of inspiration from Renaissance painters that really spent time understanding the human form and I find that’s key, observation is the most important thing to an artist, everything from understanding your tools to understanding your subjects. I try to socialise with a variety of people, which in return gives me plenty of opportunities to sit and observe how people interact and react to each other. Sounds very odd I know haha.

Your portfolio contains some concept sketches for a video game - is this an ongoing project? Does a project like this present its’ own unique challenges?
What do you think of the art direction of modern video games?

These sketches were for University, I often found myself in teams of people with drifferent skillsets, such as 3D modelling, texturing etc. These were purely for University projects, I was part of a team doing concept art for everything from characters to environments.

In this industry I found speed and accuracy is the key, I would often have to come up with a dozen sketches and paintings in a day, tough challenge that makes you really have to think on your feet and can sometimes drain you both mentally and creatively.

As for the art direction in video games, I feel this is one of the most important aspects. The first thing the customer will see is the art on the front cover of the game, and when they stick the game on the first thing they will see is the graphics, not many people have turned around after playing a game and complimented it on the brilliant programming and coding haha.

What first lead you to start creating your art?Are you driven by the same factors now as you were to begin, and how has your personal style evolved?

I grew up in a country where we didn’t have a fantastic amount of luxuries, since I could remember I was always drawing, as a kid I was fascinated by dinosaurs, and fighter planes haha. I would often draw dinosaurs from books and create little comic style storyboards. As a kid I knew I wanted to be an artist, either that or a T rex, sadly that never worked out.

As I grew I developed a series of styles, through my teens I never let go of my pencil and fine liner pen, everything had to look as realistic as possible or it just wasn’t good enough. I think this is where I developed the most skill as I can be pretty stubborn with work, if it didn’t look realistic it would go in the bin. I grew out of that phase as I started to explore with different materials, I went away from spending hours shading an eyelid to rapidly creating shapes and forms.

Now I am trying to get the best of both worlds, I find I can really quickly create a piece that looks realistic but not spend more than 2-3 hours on a single piece (which has become a rule for me now) to keep creativity flowing and it helps me push myself to optimise my workflows.

How did you go about establishing Bloodline Illustration?

Ive been asked a lot recently to do work for people for bands or clothing companies, and Bloodlines was a perfect opportunity to get to a more broad audience other than my Facebook friends. Social media sites are perfect for this, they allow you to quickly get hold of people anywhere in the world and just  get a foothold in the big wide world. I want to head into freelance illustration, I feel the internet has allowed freelance to be easily accessible and people can be contacted with a click of a button, its fantastic.

I have recently started Bloodlines up with a friend, we hope to get the ball rolling soon and get our careers under way, its fantastic having people wanting stuff from you and it feels even better applying my art to something I feel is going to be worthwhile.

You have produced designs for a few bands -were any of these bands who you have gigged with, or did they discover you through your art?

For the most part they were close friends, people we’ve met through gigging and the music scene in general. From there they would recommend me to other people and so on, which is perfect because it helps both my art and my music because it allows me to network with people from all over the globe, we have friends all over the UK, Europe and more recently places like Canada and the USA.

 If you could design for any band of your choice, who would it be?

This is a toughy haha, Ive been fortunate enough to do some work recently to one of my favourite bands Anchored By Avarice, that was awesome but for me. But without a doubt it would have to be Deftones, a band that has matured and inspired me all through my life.

 Do you aim to express particular emotions or moods within your work? I felt a sense of vitality and freedom in your pieces, would you say these are factors which you aim to convey in your work?

I will often start a piece without a set image in mind, start with a blank canvas and lay down shapes as I go along. I would definitely say my mood would influence those shapes and images, I like to convey positive messages and particularly in my environment pieces as well as projecting the image of exploration and showing an element of the unknown, I love the notion of hope and freedom, which I feel is a big theme for me in my pieces.

On the flipside ill often create something I feel just looks cool without thinking on a deeper level haha.

- Harvey I’d like to welcome you to The Free Art Movement UK. Please tell us about yourself and what you do within the art world?

Always a pleasure. I’m a 21 year old freelance illustrator/ designer/ contract killer from buckinghamshire, who at the moment seems to have some kind of split style disorder. Otherwise known as SSD. One side of me illustrates happy looking things, and the other half? Some kind of variety of the not so happy, looking things…


- What are your favorite forms of media to use within your work?

Pens, I love pens. I like to think of myself as some kind of pen fanatic. Fine

liners and biros. Big fans of them both. I like to mess around with inks as well, creating different textures and using them as scan ins. I try and do most of my work as organically as possible before it goes into photoshop. Avoids nasty things like photoshop brushes.


- Where do you gain inspiration for the work you create?

Lots of things! Life’s always a nice and cliche answer, but true all the same. All other forms of media too, music, film, and of course other illustrators, artists, designers and general doodlers works. 


- The attention to detail within all of your work is truly amazing; on
average how long does it take you to complete a piece of work?

Why thank you very much. I’ve always had a weird compulsion as a child to over complicate things. It’s true to myself in everyday life as well, I can’t seem to do anything in moderation. It’s probably a good job I never experimented with drugs. 

I’ve been asked that before and I never have an answer, It boggles me that everyone else I know who works in the same profession always had an answer to that question as well. I think it’s because I put my head down and it feels like i’ve been working for minutes, but in reality people have born and died in the same time frame. I usually have to step back from stuff and go back to it and do something in between or I have a tendency to get bored and hate what I’m doing, or realise I’ve zoned out and done something ridiculous. 


- 2012 has really seemed to of been a busy year for you, what are you wanting to achieve within 2013? 

2012 has been pretty mental. Life and work

wise, i’ve been thrown around everywhere. Lots of highs and then the inevitable lows, which naturally you feel more. Hitting the ground face first always leaves a bigger dent in your psyche, you just have to pick yourself up and get on with it. 

I’ve started a lot this year, next year is crunch time for me, I’ve had a year to get on my feet and get noticed a little in the industry. 2013 is where I will really get the ball rolling. 


- How well do you feel the art scene within Milton Keynes is supported? 

To be honest I’m so disconnected from the art world outside of the internet, apart from the odd gallery viewing, i’ve never looked into it. My talented friend Dayne Britten has usually got his work up somewhere, so it can’t be too bad. Unless he’s been holding people at gun point to get his work up. He is an angry red-head after all.

- For a while I’ve seen many convocations about how some people believe that to become successful within the art world the artist has to be go to university, admittedly it is a very controversial debate but I wanted to know what your thoughts were on this? 

This argument makes me want to put people’s heads through walls, as well as my own. It’s what you make of it. Most of my closest friends in the industry went off to university, because that was what was best for them, and they always said the same to me in regard to me not going and starting work as a freelancer. There are of course pros and cons, getting contacts, learning from experts, it all depends on who you are and where you’re attending. One of my friends for instance went because he wanted to teach the profession later in life, the other because he felt personally, that was the best way he could learn more about the industry and broaden his own (already very impressive) skills. 

I had people tell me that if I don’t go to university I won’t become anything and no one would take an interest in my work. It’s okay though, because none of those people had a fucking clue what they where talking about. They’re just repeating the same boring bollocks they had heard from other people who didn’t know what they where talking about. In this profession 9/10 you don’t get hired on your qualifications, you’re hired for your work. Its completely visual.

- And finally, do you have any tips to aspiring illustrators out there, who are trying to break into the world of art?

To be honest, I’m still breaking into the world of art. So all I can say to answer this, is what I’m doing personally. 

 I think you have to consume yourself in your work. You’ll do that anyway if it really is your passion. Prepare for the highs and lows, and be patient. It’s a long process. Everyone seems to have something to say about your chosen profession, even when they have little to no clue about it. Listen to the people that know, and take everything in around you. Be some kind of knowledge black hole. Just don’t kill anyone or destroy any planets.

Last of all, Network, there’s no excuse to not be out there with the invention of

the internet. Tweet, facebook, blog, blogfacetweetbook. It’s not lame, it’s your livelihood. You’re shooting yourself in the foot if you’re not networking.

Famt, welcome to The Free Art Movement UK. It’s great having you on board with this project. How did you get into the art world?

I was always into art; from the time I could remember. I was always trying to draw or get involved with new forms of artistic expression. I went to art camps at a very young age during the Summer, so that I could work with things like paint and clay, since when you’re 5 years old those things aren’t readily available. I think what really got me into art was when I was a “pre-teen” I was working at the local museum, wanting to become a History major when I went to college, and they had an art exhibit going on. Most of the art was post modern, mixed media, slightly abstract paintings; things you can tell inspired my art. The main piece that stuck out was just a drawing, done on graph paper; elaborate lines, criss-crossing, in order an order to illustrate. That one art piece, is what fueled my journey into art. For the next 2-4 years I was drawing tessellation and doing as much art as I could based off geometry and Calculus. I didn’t even take Geometry till I was something like 15, I ended up teaching everyone in my grade the art as I call it, because to me, it’s by far not math (we had a really bad math teacher, luckily I was ahead of him and my class mates). I started doing computer based art as a Sophmore in high school; I traded in my graph paper at that time and changed my mediums. Rehab at the age of 17 put a two year damper on my art. I started doing art again when I was 19, after my good friend Michael Salas started doing all the art for my company Pick Satan. I’ve never done art for my company, he does it all; because I trust him more…and let’s face it, I don’t want to be the artist that screws up my company. You can’t scream at yourself, but you can scream at your best friend till your red in the face.

What I’ve noticed within your work is a strong feature of anti religion, with this what are your thoughts upon religion as a whole? And how does this come into your artwork?

This is deep one for me. I’ve always been a fan of religious and anti-religious art. Religion is very personal, no one ever realizes that though; or they just care to forget. I’ve always believed in Evolution, and a part of me, has always believed in spiritualism  Being spiritual has NOTHING to do with being religious though. In high school  I was a fan of LaVey, only because of the principle that you worship yourself. That concept, was a good thing for me, as I’m a generally self loathing person. At the time, I agreed; you are Satan, you are God, because all you see in the mirror is you. I still agree to an extent. Even though I no longer call myself a “Satanist” (Although my Mother still thinks I “Worship the devil”; which is something I’ve never said myself). I find peace in gloom, personally. My practices and beliefs are a cross between Atheism and Shamanism. My Father was the same, so you could say I’m just following in step. Although, my father was a professional con-artist and is in Federal Prision, for what I was told is rape…so I’m hopefully not folowing RIGHT in step (Rape isn’t a federal crime though, so SOMEONE lied to sir Famt). My art reflects my distast towards the Christian principles. I’ve never found anything involving Christ to make much sense, so I’ve always figured if it’s illogical, it’s fine to throw shit at it. I have close friends who say I’m Mysogonistic or a Sociopath; but the way I see it, I’m just doing the world a favor that many don’t want to do anymore, challenging everything that doesn’t makes sense. My art is dark because my resolve is dark, my out look is gloom; I’m a generally happy person, well loved; I just want nothing to do with any of that…I try to communicate as much of this as I can in my art.

I was recently asked by a good friend of mine a question that I hadn’t really thought about until then, do you feel that the art world as a whole is becoming too dependent on social networks? As if face to face interaction has become a rare occurrence? But also do you feel that this is a good or bad thing to be happening?

As a digital artist, someone who rarely creates art off of a computer; I see no issue with this. I’m also rather hermetic, rarely leaving my own bedroom, somedays not even leaving my own bed. So for me, even though I’m starting to rather well known, it’s all from my bedroom. Some people say “That’s not working”, “That’s not a job”, or “That not art” since it’s all done from my laptop, while in bed. But, if I can pay my bills and buy whatever I want, do whatever ritual I feel needs to be done, within my bedroom and my property; who the fuck are you to say what is what? Personally, I think people need to deal with the fact the Internet is the new way of communication. Get with it, get used to it, it’s nearly 2013 and you need learn how to communicate; if you think social networking isn’t good, then your an introvert, and we’ll probably argue about more things then just this.

We recently discussed that you are going to be creating a lot of 3D pieces of sculpture, on a personal front I’m extremely excited to see them but what are your favorite forms of media to use?

My sculpting will be physical art, something I haven’t done since I was about 16-17. I’m hoping that people will enjoy it, because it’s a chore for me to make it. Sculpting, for me, evolves a bunch of different random things intricately put together. The concept of using traditional sculpting is foreign to me; but I guess that should be expected since I take my inspiration from Post Modern, Abstract, and Minimalism. My favorite form of media, by far, is digital  I wouldn’t even be considered an artist if it wasn’t for Photoshop. Besides that, probably photography, although the guy who takes all my serious pictures for my clothing lines and bands says that I’m a shit photographer…so, I mean, he’s probably right and I should stick to sculpting and digital art.

For as long as I’ve known you, you have worked with some seriously big names how did they come about?

Aha; since I can remember, I’ve been bumping into people who were already big names, or later became big names. I have the benefit of being memorable. I met Kery King from Slayer in a local Sandwich shop when I was 18, that’s just some insight to my “Luck”. I went to high school with Scott Ian’s (Carnifex’s vocalist) brother. I guess I’ve always wanted to be bigger then KISS, so I’ve been striving to get further and further since day one. Befriending people is the first step, the second step would be to make sure they want to stay your friend. Be useful, because everyone is on their OWN agenda; if you’re not useful, your not shit. If you can’t be worked into someone else s agenda, they don’t want you around. I guess knowing this all from a young age got me somewhere, greed makes the world turn; sin is what is on everyone’s mind.

How is 2013 shaping up for you?

5-6 clothing lines already that I’m envloved with; more guitar picks; 2 bands; a cat; college; more tattoos; and more weed

Cyris, firstly thanks for letting us interview you and secondly your workis truly amazing.

Now I’m going to start this interview off kind of controversial, a few people within the art world think that graffiti isn’t an art form because of where the art is completed. What are your thoughts on that? 

Hi guys, no problem thanks for having me on.

This is pretty much the go-to question regarding graffiti isn’t it? I’m not sure there’s that much more that I can add to what’s already been said but here goes. There is undeniably artistic skill and flair involved in graffiti, but i’m not always out to create art when i’m painting it. Sometimes I just want to write my name. To me, even a basic handstyle can be beautiful but not all of them are and nor should they be. Cut and Tox don’t paint beautiful stuff but their kind of brazen, fuck-you, i’m-writing-my-name-and-i’m-writing-it big graff has it’s own inherent beauty. I think sometimes graffiti becomes art becauseof where it’s painted, not in spite of it.

With the huge hype around the likes of banksy what do you feel they have done to the scene? 

 Ahh Banksy, everyone loves to hate and it’s easy to. I don’t hate the guy, I hate that he’s become this household name for graff and his popularity casts a shadow over almost everything else. It’s fine for people to say they don’t like graff but they do like Banksy because let’s be honest, he’s not a graffiti writer. He’s a stencil artist and he hasn’t painted apiece in at least a decade to my knowledge. The real pity is that people only concentrate on his work at the expense of truly talented people like Dose, Aroe, Revok and Sofles. But hey at the end of the day maybe some people will discover other artists through his work and that can only be good. Also, props to channel 4 (I think it was them) that put out the documentary detailing the beef between Banksy and Team Robbo, I think that helped some people see there’s more to graff than just amusing stencils.

Your style is really diverse and instantly recognizable from what age did you get involved in the graffiti scene? But also why?

 I started painting in when I was 16 and i’m 28 now so i’ve been at it for a while. I suppose because I was heavily into skating at the time and Radlands Skatepark where we usually skated always had good stuff up from local folks and people from further out. I remember seeing stuff from Siren, Reza, Dazer and Focus down there. Out on the streets and tracks it was pretty much the same names but also Melt, Ivy and Chor. Shout out to Rainman, Hafs and Gums too. So seeing all these people doing their thing really inspired me. Also I remember reading an interview in Front magazine with a writer who was describing being chased out of yards by police dogs and because i’m a bit off mentally I thought ‘that sounds like good fucking fun’. So I started painting with my buddy S-Man and a while later discovered that some of my old friends from school had started painting too, so we started CFC and that’s that. In terms of my style I think i’m pretty traditional but i’m moving towards some more abstract stuff…

Admittedly graffiti is very much an underground scene but as a whole, how well is your local art scene supported?

 There’s definitely a lot of talent here in Northampton. From a graff point of view we aren’t supported at all but hey, what do you expect? We could certainly do with some more places to paint as the scene is pretty busy right now so walls don’t stay up for long. I try not to get precious about people painting over my stuff but nobody likes it. There are some people doing something to support the scene though. Big shout out goes to GFunk and Punish who recently opened the 26th Chamber graff store here in Northampton (check them out here -facebook.com/TWENTYSIXTHCHAMBER). The art scene in general in Northampton seems pretty solid but it’s not something I know enough about to comment on really, except to say I was sad to see the Fishmarket close, they had some good events supporting local artists there.

Within the next 5 years how do you feel the scene will evolve? 

 I’d like to see Northampton continue to grow and mature, we’ve had a lot of younger folks start painting and hopefully some of them will still be here in 5 years. You see a lot of people start, paint hard for 6 months, then disappear. As I said earlier there really is a lot of talent here in Northampton, but I don’t think we’re producing world-class stuff yet. I’d like to see someone step things up and put Northampton on the map. Things are good but they could always be better.

What are your plans for 2013?

 See above. Paint more, paint bigger, think bigger. I’d like to paint some pieces that could stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best. Just work harder basically, spend less money on beer and more money on paint.

Oh and while i’ve got a minute i’m gonna take this opportunity to shout out the family - YENS, GFUNK, PUNISH, STANE, SINA, MEKS, GLEE, PETROV, PADDY and anyone I forgot. Oh and the wife, better not forget her. Put the kettle on eh?

Kodie, thank you so much for featuring on The Free Art Movement UK really good to have you on board. Firstly can you tell us a little bit about yourself?-Yooo, my name is Kodie Smith (Kodeart) i’m a 21 year old tattoo apprentice/artist from Essex and work at Edshead in Chelmsford, i live and love to draw, which is lucky as its the only thing im decent at, well like to think I’m ok anyway ha.Your art style is extremely unique how has it developed from when you first started creating artwork?-Well i’ve always been into my art, drawing since i can remember and before, only in the last year has it really got to a level where im sometimes happy with it, i used to do a lot of cartoon drawings and computer illustrations which helped me develop a style and get to where i am now.What is your favorite media to use and why?-Water colours on paper is my favorite, its my strongest point, and skin also as tattooing is a great challenge!Really am so happy to see you get a tattooing apprenticeship very much deserved, have you always wanted to be a tattooist? And what drew you to that career path?Thanks a lot, i haven’t ever been one to plan ahead to much so the idea of me tattooing only started when i was 17 and got a tattoo, i just thought to myself as i liked drawing it would be a nice job but never put it to action properly and went for it till i was 19/20 and got my finger out and made a portfolio, managed to get an apprenticeship back in February 2012 and gone from there really, my art has changed a lot because of it, for the better! As well as the apprenticeship 2012 looked like an extremely busy time for you, what plans do you have for 2013?It was fairly busy, 2013 is gonna be busier i am aiming to just get around the Uk guest spotting when im ready and stuff like that, just meeting new people and learning new things, im not entirely sure as i don’t like to make definite decisions but i hope to still be breathing by the end of it, well unless another apocalypse comes of course? There is an abundance of poorly done tattoos around at the moment how do you feel it will affect the tattoo scene within the UK in years to come?This is true, it effects business but at the same time just gives us more work to do, alot more cover ups but polishing turds can be fun, i dont think the people who do the bad tattoos will effect people who have talent, people who actually care for good art can see the talent and make the effort to go get tattoos from them, it doesnt bother me as long as im busy! But if not we will have to join together and take out the scratchers! HA

In the very near future Kodie will be featured on a video, one of which I am very looking forward too.
Many thanks for reading.
