Featured Artist :: Digicute
This week's featured artist is Digicute!
Digicute - The Wonderful World of Everything Cute and Digital
Senioritis: What’s your name, and where are you located?
Digicute: Teresa, from Buford, GA
Senioritis: Wow, you’re the second featured artist in a row we’ve had from Georgia. There must be some major creativity running in the water down there.
Senioritis: Can you give us a brief bio, please?
Digicute: I'm an IT major who likes to craft to relieve her stress (and it has been quite helpful ;D!!). I figured that graphic designing would be a very valuable skill. I'm mostly using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to draw my illustrations. I learned how to use both from watching videos online (I love youtube :D!!!) and books borrowed from the public libraries.
Senioritis: That’s great! We love learning how to do-it-yourself by watching online videos, too. And public libraries are definitely underrated resources.
Senioritis: Please describe your style in just a few words, Teresa.
Digicute: cute, girly, colorful, cheerful
Senioritis: That sounds pretty accurate based on your work. =)
Senioritis: What’s your favorite color?
Senioritis: We love the enthusiasm!
Senioritis: Are you a righty or a lefty?
Digicute: Righty :)!
Senioritis: Do you have a favorite quote?
Digicute: "Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire" by Confucius :)! I grew up with it!
Senioritis: That’s a terrific quote, Teresa. And we agree - great words to live by. Confucius was full of wisdom.
Senioritis: If you could have lunch with any famous person, past or present, who would it be?
Digicute: It would definitely be with Bill Gates! He has been my hero for so many years, and he is definitely one of the top role models for people in the IT field!
Senioritis: He’s a great businessman, too. We’re sure he would have lots of very interesting things to say, and great experiences to share with any lunch companion.
Senioritis: Do you have a favorite cartoon?
Digicute: Tom and Jerry. They are so fun and goofy :)! They always make me laugh!
Senioritis: Tom and Jerry are great. We remember when they were featured on the Smuckers jelly jars while we were growing up. We might even still have some of those jars around here . . . .
Senioritis: Teresa, where do you see yourself and your shop in ten years?
Digicute: Wow, ten years . . . that's a long time. I think, or I hope lol, I will still have my Etsy shop open. Maybe I will start selling outside of Etsy. But no doubt that I will still love crafting :D! Senioritis: We definitely see you crafting for a very, very long time. We are excited to see where the future takes you and your work.
Senioritis: Where can we find you on the web?
Digicute: My Shop and My Fan Page.
Senioritis: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Digicute: Thank you, Garrick, for the opportunity!! And I love everyone on the Shop of the Day thread!! Thank you all so much :D!!
Senioritis: Our pleasure, we appreciate all the work you put into running the Shop of the Day thread. And keep on making your great work!
We’d like to give a huge thank you to Teresa for showing us around the wonderful world of Digicute. Please check out her fantastic artwork at her Etsy shop. Please take a look at Teresa's latest venture as well, Paper Sweetness.
