MEET THE ARTIST

  • Start off and tell us your name! Who are you?

I’m Jessica!  Online and when I table at live shows, I go by Winged Coyote Designs

  • What kind of art do you create and what medium do you work in?

Most of the art I create recently is based on many different fandoms, whether it’s for gallery shows, personal interests, or commissions.  When I do original work, it tends to be fantasy and mythology based.

  • When did you know you were an artist?

I’ve been drawing since a very young age.  Basically I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawing or doing art. 

  • Le Fae is about all things magical fairy! Tell us about why you applied to the show and what inspired the work you made for the curated collection?

Le Fae is about all things magical fairy! Tell us about why you applied to the show and what inspired the work you made for the curated collection?  I’ve participated in Bubble Pop Gallery’s before and really enjoy the experience, so I was happy to see a new theme and show.  I had a lot of ideas circling in my head based on fairies, but ended up going with two childhood animated favorites for inspiration, FernGully: The Last Rainforest and Thumbelina.

  • Where did you hear about Bubble Pop Gallery and what made you want to be in the show?

I’d been looking for doing more tribute galleries and I think it was @asiadraws on Instagram post about Bubble Pop, so I checked it out!  It was nice that they are in California, but still took mail in submissions as most of the places I looked into at the time were local drop offs only, which limited options.  The themes for Bubble Pop have always been interesting and it’s great to see what others come up with as well as providing inspiration for myself.

  • Have you ever done a gallery show before? If yes, how many?

So many I’ve lost count!  I started up with them over two years ago!

  • What is your favorite thing about being a creative?

Creating new things and designs that just make people happy.  One of the things I miss about conventions being on hold is just the atmosphere of when someone sees something they like.  Something that brings a memory of their childhood.  Seeing the moment that someone gets a joke in a piece.    It’s nice to be able to take something from my head that I want to be in the world and then be able to share that with everyone.

  • What inspires you?

All sorts of things.  Books, tv shows, movies, and comics that I enjoy.  I also get inspiration from various mythology and fairy tales.  Mixing and matching things.  I often do a lot of research before starting many of my pieces which ends up in massive pinterest boards.

  • How does art make the world a better place?

It brightens up the world, whether it’s the environment around you or your own mind. It can bring contentment and joy or provoke thought. It can help people work through and process emotions. Or even just give a bit of rest to a weary mind.

  • Where are you located?

Currently in San Diego, CA.

  • What projects are you working on that you can tell us about?

I have a few things in the work for my Isle of Magic feature day as well as pieces for The Artist Lodge’s Flora Fauna show that goes through March.

  • Where can people find you?

@wingedcoyotedesigns on instagram is the main place that I update.  I’m also at @wingedcoyoteart on twitter and wingedcoyotedesigns on tumblr.  My Etsy is https://www.etsy.com/shop/WingedCoyote .  My website is www.wingedcoyote.com .

  • Anything else you would like to share?

Not that I can think of!
