My Interview with Author and Poet SYLVESTER L. ANDERSON

Sylvester L Anderson

Today I am very happy that I can finally share my New Interview!
I like to introduce you with my dear friend and long time follower of my Art and Blog my special guest is Author and Poet Sylvester L. Anderson also known in our Community Aka “Syl”  the name of his Syl65’s Blog I am really honored that he accepted to do this interview with me. Syl is a great soul and inspiring Author he writes beautiful poems, his flowing words are encouraging, motivating and filled with strength and positive energy. For some mysterious reasons it happens to read them just when you need them in your heart. Syl post daily on his Blog  his poetry, haiku, quotes and inspiring music he introduce his Blog with these words and verses….

Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire…..Isaiah 40: 31 But they who wait upon the Lord will get new strength. They will rise up with wings like eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not become weak…”

I wanted to illustrate our interview with a mystical, ethereal and powerful image as Syl creative writings are. I think that my Digital Artwork “Angels” that you see above is just right because I see Syl like the encouraging and supportive  Angel in our Blog’s community. Since the day he started to follow my art and blog years ago, he is always there leaving encouraging and beautiful heartfelt comments which I appreciate very much.

Right now here are my questions, let’s get to know Syl better let’s get started! Enjoy the interview….

1. For who doesn’t know you and your Blog, can you please introduce who Syl is?

First, thank you Carolina for having me on your blog. I have always appreciated your art and creativity. Now, who is Syl? I am a poet, blogger and author trying to inspire and help others see that they do matter in this life. Aside from writing, I enjoy music (a part of my blog), movies and I’m always open to learning.

2. When did you discover your talent and love for writing?

I would say at an early age. I use to sing out these little rhymes I had made up and my very first poem was a mother’s day poem (to my mom of course). I was very shy growing up so writing was my way to express what was going on inside of me, especially in my high school years. For as long as I can remember I have been writing, whether it was extra little notes in birthday cards, writing down my thoughts, or poetry.

3. You have a beautiful way to create your poetry expressing your words giving beautiful messages, there is a superior presence in your poetry and you often mention God? How much he inspire and influence your creative writings?

Thank you for your words. I will say that I am a born again Christian. I have no denomination, I follow Christ and He is the center of everything I do. I believe I was blessed with a gift to write and I want to use my gift to inspire others. I want to share what God does for me on a daily basis and that is love me unconditionally. I am so very happy that it comes through in my poetry. That right there is my central purpose and also to entertain. If you can smile after one of my poems, then it’s all good.

4. Can you describe your writing process? Do you plan your writings or do you write whenever words come to you?

My writing process is simple. I think the only time I plan my writings is when I am doing my Monday Thought post or when I am working on a book. I do a lot of spontaneous, whatever pops into my head writing. When the inspirational spark hits I get to writing. Sometimes the words come like a flood, line after line, or I am writing down one line and see what comes from it. Also, I find photos to go with my poetry and many times I choose the photo first and write about what I see in it. The most important part of my writing process is not forcing anything. If it’s not there I don’t write. I write because I enjoy it, not because I feel I have to.

5. You published several Poetry Collections can you tell us about it? And where we can find them?

I have published four print books and two eBooks, all self-published. I will list them in order and where you can find them.

Life through Celestial LensesAmazon (print and eBook)
The Darkness, The Light and The GloryAmazon (eBook available at smashwords)
Heartspeak, God and LoveAmazon (print and eBook)
Soul EmbersAmazon (print and eBook)
33 In The Name of Jesus – smashwords (eBook)
The Sevens – smashwords (eBook)


6. What suggestion or advice can you give to someone who wants publish their poetry for the first time?

Poetry is expression, so write what you love, be authentic and be original. Amazon Publishing Services offers free publishing tools and guides to help you get published. You will be doing the work yourself as far as formatting and editing but it is worth it if you are looking to publish your poetry. Winning Writers is a website where you can find legitimate poetry/literary contest (also a great way to get your poetry published). You can also look for poet/poetry forums or writing communities. No matter what your goal is, do your research and don’t give up.

7. What is your creative Dream Project?

Wow, that’s a great question! I would like to do some type of visual/spoken word videos and take my poetry to another level. Another dream project is to do some spoken word in whatever audio format and I definitely do not mean me reading some poetry in this robotic tone, but something with some oomph to it. I don’t think we should put limitations on our creativity. Also, I am open to doing collaborative projects with any of my fellow creatives out there.

8.  I love to ask this question to everyone I interview because is personal and introspective, If you describe or picture your inner soul how will you describe it? And what color would it be?

I picture my inner soul as an observer, standing in the background, taking notes about what is going in and around me. My favorite color is black but I believe my inner soul would be blue. Blue has a calming, tranquil affect and I hope that I bring that type of peace and calm with my everyday presence. Another thing about the color blue is that when you look up and see a clear blue sky it looks never-ending, limitless. I believe we shouldn’t put a cap on our dreams or goals, not limit ourselves.

9.  This is my last question you are one of my long time followers and I can call you my friend I know by now that you like my art and I like to ask you what do you like about my Art? What do you see in my paintings?

I believe when I first started following you, you were doing these digital portraits and I was blown away immediately. Your art is so original has such a distinctive, vintage look and quality about it which I can say is your signature style. What do I see in your paintings? I get a sense of hope,  especially within the eyes of your characters. There is this good vibe flowing beneath what you put on canvas. Lastly, I see you, maybe it your facial features that show up but I see you. You are your art.
Thank you so very much for this interview, Carolina, and for having me on your blog. It was fun and very much appreciated.

In conclusion of this Interview…. 
I am leaving you with one of Syl  latest Haiku – The Stars Are Speaking Again

A clear sky tonight
The stars are scattered just right
Speaking their language
Clasping your hand much tighter
Vivid in my mind

Forest Goddess – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today weekly photo challenge for  The Daily Post  theme  is ““I’d Rather Be…” and my answer is Creating!

I love to create my art and express my creativity in many different ways, I am a full-time artist and I love what I do. For me there is not much of “I’d rather be” because I try to create art every day! I am a watercolor painter, an illustrator and jewelry designer, I love photography and digital photo manipulations. I also like to write poems, haiku and short stories.  

Day #15: Witch _ Mysterious

 

My watercolor painting series are all available in Limited Edition Signed Fine Art Prints.

Day #2 Goblin Divided – Supplies

This is me on the beach in action with my camera trying to capture the moment…

This is one of my photos I love the ocean, sunsets and stormy skies

I love to create photo manipulations and I have created a Collection titled “When Nature Meets Humans” this Portrait title is “Proud” I like the Concept to mix Nature with Humans and create a unique One of a kind Digital Portraits. This is my evolving  idea and concept to combining the beauty of Nature with Humans telling a story in the form of Visual-Art, combining and blending a number of different photos in one unique portrait. Each photo has a meaning that tell the Portrait story. You can see more of this collection here and in this Gallery.

Nature is my biggest inspiration in everything I create…

I also love to create jewelry for  my “Among Nature” Jewelry Collection.
The nature is my greatest inspiration for my Jewelry Designs. I often use found in nature objects hand-picked by me in special places I visit.  All my creations are made using only beautiful natural gemstones, seashells, fossils, woods, bone and crystals which  I combine with precious and semi precious metals.

Sometimes I write when words are whispered to my soul…this is one of my poems

Hands

Artist precious hands,
intensity and love givers.

Hands guided by a heart pulse,
forging and hammering metals,
holding precious stones.

Inspiration from the soul,
happiness  and art givers,
emotions in a motion of senses.

stroking brushes fulfilled with passion,
dripping water on white paper,
splashes of colors take forms.

Ink tears into the unknown
a creation is born.

Music – My Interview with Ewian Christensen

Ewian Christensen Digital Portrait ©Carolina Russo
Ewian Christensen – Digital Portrait created by ©Carolina Russo

My interview with Musician, Composer, AudioVideo and independent Artist EWIAN CHRISTENSEN.

Today I am very happy to introduce you with my dear friend musician and composer EWIAN from Germany. Some of you that follow my Blog remember last year when I have Featured Ewian. I love his music and often I shared his  videos and the release of his latest Album “We Need Monsters”. I also used Ewian’s photos last year to create a first Digital Art Portrait part of my Art concept “When Nature Meet Humans ” Ewian was the portrait #6. A couple of months ago I asked Ewian if he would’ve have been open to do an interview with me. And he kindly accepted! I am thrilled about this and I am very happy to be able to let you know him better through  this interesting interview and if you don’t know him and his music, this is an opportunity for you to discover a very talented,  unique Artist that has a wonderful soul and a kind heart. His music is not so common and maybe not for everyone but if you like it… you love it! The sound he produce in his music is  a sort of unique amazing dreamy music combined with beautiful words in his lyrics that definitely show Ewian intrigued inner soul.
The color digital Portrait above is my latest creation dedicated to Ewian. I used some of the photos that he sent to me for this interview and I created this tri-dimensional metropolitan image that I guess in a way represent Ewian latest work.

Thank you so much Ewian for allow me to do this interview with you and give the opportunity to others to get to know your Art.

Let’s get started! Here there are my five questions:

1. For who doesn’t know can you please introduce who is EWIAN?

EWIAN was founded by me, Ewian Christensen in March 2013 by the release of my debut EP ‘We Will Never Grow Old’ The artist name is an acronym and means ‘Water of life’ in a metaphorical sense. Basically I am an independent artist, born in Latvia and grown up in Germany. Though I release my records (mostly) via Timezone records, my work is not under the influence of any record label, management, or other instances in order to guarantee the authenticity of my art to myself and all consumers. Beside my debut I published one single (‘Voices in your head’, 2013) and two albums (‘Good Old Underground’, 2014; ‘We Need Monsters’, 2015).

cover_weneedmonsters
Album: We Need Monsters’, 2015

I compose and produce all music and videos almost entirely by myself. From time to time, I collaborate with other musicians, so far with Fifi Rong (England, song: ‘When I Was Dead’), Alien Hand Syndrome (Austria, song: ‘Zampano’), Slack Armada (U.S.A., song: ‘Looper’), and at the moment: Plike (U.S.A.,’VAST’).

2.  Your music has a very unique sound and style and is categorized as “Alternative, Post-Rock”. Can you describe your creative process and what prompt and inspire you while creating?

Thanks. I already mentioned in other interviews that I just can’t help doing music. The transformation of inner cognitions, ideas, aspirations, wishes, fears and so on into art serves the maintenance of my mental healthiness. Simultaneously, I have the feeling that I can wrap these inner concepts into a shell which could be tangible for (at least a part of) my recipients. And at that point this non-egoistic part of intellectual creation comes into play, whereby I can give something back. The creative process itself rarely precedes the way I expect. Sometimes I work very methodical, sometimes I just have some kinds of scintillation, maybe one can draw a comparison to the work of a crazy scientist.

3. What are you working on right now? Any new project?

Absolutely. You and my newsletter recipients already know that the third EWIAN album is highly likely to be released in spring 2017. As I mentioned above, I am working also on a collaboration with Mad Madam Em (known as Plike) for the song VAST.
And I can say, that’s not all! You can expect more for 2017: a special project, maybe my most costly so far. I guess 2017 will be MY year? This is a screenshot of the video I produce at the moment for the song VAST:

VAST - Ewian
Song VAST – Screenshot from the new video produced by  EWIAN

 

4. What is your creative Dream Project?

To be honest… to shoot a movie.

Ewian Christensen

5. This question is personal and introspective, If you describe or picture your inner soul how will you describe it? And what color would it be?

I guess I ́m a lone wolf of sorts. Furthermore peaceful, queer, and pathetic. My perception is mostly abstract, I firstly see the common features of all things and their interactions, not the differentiating ones. This helps me doing my art, but at the same time it is complicating my daily routine. I am fascinated by reoccurring patterns in nature like fractalistic structures. This mode of perception explains my spiritual vain. I always had a drive for explaining the unexplained and doing things that (apparently) no human else did before. I love to grapple with dystopias and utopias and to become lost in excessive thought experiments. If I’d be a painter, my art would be surrealistic. But I lose the thread, so: The color that would describe my soul the most is definitely a dark blue.

Digital Art  Portraits MUSIC Collection

– THE TWILIGHT SAD –

Today I am sharing with you my project and artwork a new Digital Portrait!

This time I am starting a new Collection of Portraits dedicated to the world of  “MUSIC” and Artists. I loved to create this portrait very much,  because is inspired and dedicated to my favorite nowadays band from Scotland “The Twilight Sad” and to their great and unique music. This year The Twilight Sad had an amazing and successful North American Tour as the opening band chosen by the iconic “The Cure” for this full-fledged 2016 World Tour together. In October they will be back on stage with The Cure Touring around Europe for the final dates of the Tour.  I attended one of the fantastic concerts last May. I have seen them in Los Angeles at The Hollywood Bowl in one of the three sold out shows, it was an amazing and wonderful concert that I never wanted to miss. If you haven’t you can read my detailed Blog Post here.

Details about my Digital Portrait

For this portrait I loved to use the beautiful photos of International Live Music Photographer, “Mauro Melis”, his work is stunning! He had the opportunity to photograph many amazing bands during the years, creating beautiful memories throughout his photography. And I am honored that he let me use his photos for create my artwork this digital portrait. I used three images of The Twilight Sad performing during two dates of the North American Tour. These below are the original photos I used before my digital intervention and creation.

Singer James Graham - Medison Square Garden New York

Drummer - Mark Devine - Concert May 17, 2016 - El Paso Texas
Drummer – Mark Devine – Concert May 17, 2016 – El Paso, Texas

I love to create these ethereal digital Portraits. They  are  my evolving  idea and concept to combining images and telling a story in the form of Visual-Art. Each photo has a meaning behind it and tell the Portrait story. During my creative process I am very selective of which photo I use and I spend lots of time researching for the right ones, with the right tones of colors, right  lighting and more details to look at it. This portrait is create with three photos but in my experience during my artistic journey I have made images with 10 and more photos. The process of creating is complex and introspective there is a lots of work and lots of myself in each final image.   I am happy the way this portrait turned out and I plan to create more of them for the Music Collection. For now The Twilight Sad are my shining stars on this special portrait!

You can see and read more of my Digital Portraits visiting my other artistic Collection “When Nature Meets Humans”

I hope that you like my Digital Art and that you will share your impressions on this portrait!
A special thanks goes to The Twilight Sad with my best wishes for their European Tour dates and a great thank you to Mauro Melis for his stunning photography and his kindness to me.

With today post I am participating to Discover Weekly Photo Challenge – Portraits. I am very excited to share with you one of my digital creations. This is Portrait #5  part of my experimental Digital-Art Portraits Collection. I love working on this concept “When Nature Meet Humans” it is always challenging and fascinating for me to search for the amazing photos that inspire my creations. I gave this Portrait the title of “Light and Darkness“.
I like to experiment new ideas and concepts that are helping me to evolve and grow with my art and creativity.  I always loved to work in Digital and apply my Art to this “Techno-Medium” (I just made up this definition of Art). One of my passion is Photography I like to take photos and I like to work with photos, manipulating images blending and layering them, being able to give life to a new created photo as result of many. Here if you are a new follower or you missed my older posts you can see my Digital Art .  I also made a Gallery for the “Nature Meets Humans Portraits Collection” you can see the other portraits here.

This portrait it is the #5 of this Collection, the title is “Light and Darkness” and I like to give a positive message of hope saying that “There is always light after the dark”.

I love the deep contrast and the blue color fusing in the black  darkness and the lighting created by the full moon that brings out the reality of the eyes over the other nature elements in the background. This portrait was very intriguing and inspiring to create.

To be able to create this portrait and all the other ones I used beautiful photos found on Pinterest most of the images used are not my own Photography (I apologize but I haven’t found the Photographers names to give Credits if anyone recognize their photos please let me know).

I love this idea to mix Nature with Humans and create some unique and very different kinds of portraits…This Collection is created mostly for my own Artistic purpose and to share with you some of my Digital-Art abilities.
