Today we are interviewing an amazing artist, known as BossLogic, he has an amazing style full of vibrant colours and emotions. So let yourself immerge into this world where the only rule is to feel, as BossLogic said in the interview: “remember, art is not what you see, is what you feel”. Don’t forget to visit BossLogic’s portfolio: DaBossLogic and DeviantArt Page
My basic bio is: I’m a graphic designer from Melbourne Australia. I first started drawing when I was 6 and I still haven’t taken the pen out of my hand. Now I’ve transferred my skills to a digital platform, which I have been involved in for the past 5 years. I’m still picking up new skills along the way learning many different styles and trying to create my own, and my thirst for knowledge is one that never goes away no matter how much I take in. That is why i love doing collaborations with other talented people – to learn their take on design, learn from that foundation to create a major outcome, and to be remembered for what i have done. I come in this designers battle field armed with my sketch book in one hand and my camera I’m the other fighting to survive this colorful war. My inspirations comes from the works of fatoe and tksh and all the major designers of the KDU. They’re all talented people, and I have a lot of respect for all of them.
Well it started off as a hobby, then people wanted me to do say a flyer for them, then word of mouth spread like wild fire and I started doing all sort of print work. I liked the feeling of being in control, being my own boss so I came up with the name “bosslogic”, a name which i trade under in the design world this present day.
These days I can only do design if it means something to me or the person viewing it. I started with the eye candy glow style, which i have come to see as a little soulless, so what I have done now is blend multiple styles together to achieve a higher outcome. Style is what divides us from other artists but I can’t do a piece anymore without incorporating it with story. My advice is that eye candy design is
great to look at but with a story behind it you’ll feel something which puts the work on a whole other level.
The whole world that stands before use is our inspiration, you see the homeless, you see the leafs in the wind, you hear a song, you watch a movie, you gain a family member, you lose a loved one this is all fuel to create art.
As I always say Pen and paper for the win . I always start with my best friends the sketchbook and the pen. I basically draw out what I call blueprints, kind of like how movie makers do story boards. I then get the resources I can find online and bring out my Canon 5D MKII for the ones I can’t find.
Silent Symphony is a piece that is loud but ever so silent, something you can look at and just imagine something else. I made it male and female so all viewers can appreciate it. I planned this piece in my head and moved straight in to photoshop I already had the right stocks and the right idea.
As I said before style, I happen to love these colours, it’s the mood they let out.
Ok let’s see, I got a Pen, a Sketch Book, Photoshop cs3 at least till cs5 comes out , canon 5d mk II and Props.
To make people happy as an artist, you want the viewer to feel what you feel, if I portrait a photo of a mother that has passed I want the viewer to feel how I felt, if I can achieve this I have that case of enlightenment.
People that let down others when they tried so hard to achieve something, that’s the worst part.
What you need to do is build a powerful portfolio and go out in full force, you will make it, and trial and error is not a bad thing and remember, art is not what you see, it’s what you feel.
