pieces from another book for my book illustration class- these are the only finished pages so that’s all i’ll be uploading from this one. it was an early learning concept book meant to teach kids about the differences between humans and dogs!
Art & Corgs Artist Feature: An interview with Jen Fuj
Tell us three unusual or interesting facts about yourself. - I don’t always match my socks. - I paint my nails when I’m procrastinating - It is because of me that there are three appearances of a corgi in three different Cartoon Network episodes.
How did you get started as an artist? I was labeled as the “artist” ever since elementary school. I enjoyed anything creative, especially drawing, sculpting, and painting. My parents and sister are also very talented in the arts, so it definitely runs in the family!
What kind of work do you create? Can you briefly describe your mediums and process? I enjoy random things. I’m the type of person who likes to stay busy, and constantly try new things. I’ll see something inspiring and will immediately want to give it a try myself. A lot of my work starts with an idea or concept, put to paper, and then realized in whatever medium I feel is best suited.
Why Corgis? Tell us about your relationship with them. I can’t remember the first time I saw a corgi, but I do know that it was love at first sight. Just something about their little legs, big ears, overly long body, and huge smiles that just warms my heart. After I discovered corgis, I knew that my first dog HAD to be one! When I graduated college, my dreams came true when I brought home my little buddy, Henry. Best dog ever! I’m biased, but he really is the best :)
What else inspires you? People are amazing. I love to people watch. Everyone has their own unique story to tell. Nature and just our daily surroundings are endless sources of inspiration.
What’s your next big project? Do you have any aspirations for the future? I’m always thinking of new designs or products to create. Everything is always better when there’s a corgi on it! ;)
Okay here’s the deal. To celebrate Corg Life’s return October 1st I’m trying something new. Allow me to break it down for you. Each CORGvenger card is $15. THERE ARE ONLY NINE. Each 3.25x2.25 card is hand drawn and colored by me. “But why are all the Corgis white?” you ask? well if you buy a card AND have a Corgi i will FINISH EACH CARD WITH YOUR CORGIS COLORATION. So it’ll be like your corgi is a CORGvenger. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. Claim your hero now at firstname.lastname@example.org.
