An interview between Mighty Jaxx and Daniel Yad covered some of the topics all of us should read and be inspired by to continue to create. Here are some highlights:
“All my life I liked to sculpt and create something, but I met with Digital Sculpting relatively recently. This tool allowed me to quickly implement my ideas and pay more attention to projects, rather than the technical component. Now I continue to search for new ideas and build skills.”
“I am primarily interested in self-expression in art. This is a very good tool to get your point across. It is in the AUTHORS project that I praise human genius. Everyone knows the big brands, but people are standing behind every brand..”
“The balance between nature and hard surface. In the work, I show natural, living lines more technical, achieve an interesting silhouette of the entire character and individual details, simplify objects as much as possible, but leave them recognizable.”
“The project AUTHORS and Designer Shoes in particular. This is currently the main project for me. It was in this project, I found my own recognizable style of stylized. I’m glad that, thanks to our collaboration, this project is being implemented. Let’s see what will happen next..”
