Artist Spotlight - Snacky boy

Drawing inspiration from adorable Pokemon characters, Snacky Boy creates amazing illustrations and enamel pins.

When we first laid eyes on the wonderful world of Snacky Boy, we were instant fans. So much so that us ghosties in the studio are proud owners of a couple of their magical enamel pins! 
Snacky boy has great attention to detail when creating their art, and it doesn't just show in their pins, but also the beautiful prints that they create.
'Get in the bag'
'Sailor Tokyo'
We absolutely love the colours and textures used, as well as the use of characters from some beloved animes that we grew up watching <3
Snacky Boy's pins are easily some of the cutest we've ever seen;
'Beautiful Blissey'
'Surfing girl'
So what did they create for us?
Snacky Boy has designed us a beautiful ghostie pin! We are blown away by how cute it is <3 Now you can have your very own pack of Sad Ghost Chips on your jacket, bag or where ever you fancy!

Q&A time:
1. What's your favourite fictitious Ghost from popular media?

I'm a huge pokemon fan, So I would have to say Gengar. It always looks so mischievous!

2. What's the best item in your pencil case?

Probably my eraser, my sketches are always super messy and it would be difficult to ink anything without getting rid of them first!

3. Paint? Pencil? or Tablet?

I mainly do digital art, so tablet! Digital art is my main medium, so much that I've embarrassingly caught myself trying to press CTRL+Z in real life when drawing before ...

4. What's your go-to motivational album?

I listen to a lot of K-Pop, recently 'The Story of Light' album by SHINee because its really uplifting, but also great background music. (also a big LOONA fan!)

5. How would you describe your work? Are there any common themes?

I use a lot of flat block colours in my art. I generally rely on contrast between these colours to add emphasis to the art instead of using line art. In terms of my character design, I would say its very 'kawaii-esque' mixed with influences from styles from franchises like Pokemon and Animal Crossing.

6. What's your proudest piece that you've worked on?

I think it may be the piece I did called 'Sailor Tokyo'. Its a sailor moon fan art piece of Usagi sitting on top of a building in Tokyo. The drawing is actually simple and does not have much detail, but I think the shapes and colours were really effective in realising the sailor moon aesthetic in my own style.

7. Do you have any/many artist rituals?

If I'm honest, I don't really! Though I can be indecisive so I often end up making multiple versions of a drawing, making little changes between versions.

8. What motivates you?

when drawing I sometimes like to hide little references or characters in the piece. I love peoples reactions when they spot something hidden or a reference, that makes me excited to work on the next piece!

9. What do you do, that you think no one else does whilst working?

When I am working I generally get really sucked in and wont do anything else. Sometimes my music might stop and I wont even notice, and I'll end up working in silence for ages! I'm sure this must happen to others too though!

10. Who are you inspired by?

A couple of artists I really love the work of are Little Thunder and Heikala, both amazing traditional watercolour artists. I'd love to get more into watercolours but I'm a very messy painter. I also love OMOCAT's apparel designs, I'd love to work on some of my own sweater or t-shirt designs like theirs someday.

11. What's your favourite way to practice self care? (Especially after a busy week)

Usually my busiest times involve big conventions, and the day after I love to cook a huge breakfast for me and all my friends with tonnes of different food, we call it magic monday! Its a good way to re-energise after a tiring few days. More generally I think doing a nice sheet mask and catching up on TV shows I'm watching at the time is great too.
