Angela Weddle

Where do you live? San Antonio, Texas

Who do you live with? Alone with my cat Jooniper

How old are you? 35.

How do you like to make art? I like making art traditionally, especially working in sketchbooks. I use most 2d mediums, pen and ink, ballpoint pen, watercolor, acrylic, oil pastels, oil paintings, and do linocuts and monoprinting. I also especially like to make art digitally on my iPad Pro using the Apple Pencil.

What inspires you to do it? I have been drawing everyday since I was 3 years old. I’m inspired by nature, especially trees and mountains, city life, the urban landscape, and capturing people unposed going about their day, animals, color, light, and patterns. I love communicating through art because I feel that people understand what I am saying, there are no misunderstandings like there can be with spoken and written communication. I love the way my art makes people feel.

How is the film work going? It is going well. I am trying to be less detailed so that I may make the animation longer.

Can you tell us about anything new you are learning for this project? I am learning to animate, to be more abstract, how to tell a story sequentially, and seeing art in new ways and new possibilities for my art.
