Dave recently interviewed Master Penman Jake Weidmann to get some insight into what makes this amazing artist tick. And if you have never seen any of Jake’s work stop reading, go to his site, and then come back to read the interview. Enjoy!
What is a “Master Penman”?
When did you become aware of the uniqueness of your gifting as an artist?
When did you think, “I think I can sell my art and actually make a living?”
What gave you the guts to follow your art?
How often do you throw away and start over?
“The tools, materials and context of my work demand the utmost of my skill and attention. With hours of practice in between final pieces, I hardly find myself starting over. Mistakes are made, but part of my practice is knowing how to fix anything that might go wrong.”
Are you a perfectionist in every way ? Is there an area of your life that it doesn’t apply?
What about you drives your wife crazy?
