Nick/Artist name : Da Donkey
When did you start and what makes you started?
I started in July 2016 because there was an overwhelming amount of people doing calligraphy on Instagram. I've always loved doing art and I practiced calligraphy on my own. Then I thought, "Why don't I give it a go?" So here I am now.
Where does your Inspiration comes from?
Usually they come from different places, from scenic pictures to other people's works, it varies, really.
What is your best achievement?
Hahaha I don't really know. I guess i would consider meeting so many talented calligraphers and artists would be my best achievement. I would have never imagined being able to talk to such wonderful people before.
Which is your personal favourite?
Hmmm... I can't really answer this one properly either.
I personally prefer my galaxies best but I don't know about others.
Who inspires you?
So many people!! My family, poets, musicians and most importantly, letterers!!
Advice for aspiring artist?
I'm not a professional but here's a little (stupid kind) of advice. Don't be afraid to try because posting your works on social media usually promotes positive criticism and a boost in self-esteem. Not just that, it also helps provide motivation and helps you improve so you should never be afraid to try new stuff and of course, make new friends!!
