Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a great guy called Nathan who goes by the show name of Nathan Glamorous. This is an interview with him.
Hey Nathan, can you give us a short introduction about yourself?
Well I know it sounds, rather odd, but I’d describe myself earthy, but with a flair.
Great description! Given by your deviantART gallery, you’re a writer, what inspired you to first start writing?
Well, it was a english project, I was going through an “emo” phase, so I thought poetry! I still write, but now on a variety of topics, not just emo.
Have you any inspirations or favourite artists/writers?
Well, I am really inspired by Jeffree Star, and Blood on the dance floor. I love their work, and I see it sometimes come through in my work.
Can you tell us a little about your artistic background?
Well, my mom was always artistic, she loves doing all sorts, like scraps books, birdhouses and that type of stuff. So I grew up with an artist. I remember one year for christmas, I painted a nutcracker for my dad!
That’s so sweet! So tell me, What motivates you to continue creating?
I find when I have a bad day, or am overwhlemed, sitting down with a cup of chai tea, and writting a poem, or drawing, really helps me relax!
I just feel so warm and fuzzy after creating something! Like I have a new perspective!
They are amazing pieces of poetry!
Now I’m interested to hear your answer on this one, what books could you just not put down?
Aww thanks! I’d say The Mortal Instruments series.
Just so spellbinding!
One fact about yourelf that only a few people know about?
I’m a hopeless romantic! I just find romance, so beautiful.
That’s wonderful! Now what tips can you offer to better oneself in their artwork?
I consider myself no grand teacher, but I think, that you need to feel and understand your subject matter. So always study!
Any parting words/words of encouragement?
To always be yourself, you are who you are. Don’t let anyone change that.
