Becca Small is an artist.
Tell me about yourself?
Well, I’m a married, working mom of 2. I’ve been drawing and making art since before I can remember. Other than that, I’m pretty much your everyday person. I work and do what I have to for my family. I like reading, music, and tattoos and I hate politics and rude jerks. My goal is to one day get my tattooing license and become a tattoo artist.
Tell me about your work experience?
I started my business a few years ago and I’ve found a niche in doing commissioned work. I’ve made logos, characters, album/ep cover art, tattoo designs, clothing designs, product logos, and stickers.
At what age did you start doing work and develop a love for artwork?: I received my first commission when I was about 19 years old, but I’ve had a love for art my whole life.
How did you develop a fondness for artwork?
From when I was a kid, and even to now, I’ve always loved cartoons and video games. I think that’s where it all started. I’ve always appreciated the art and, now that I’m older and have a better concept of how it’s all made, I have a lot of respect for the development and work that goes into it all.
Did you study artwork? If yes then from where?
No, I am self-taught.
From where did you learn this?
It started as scribbles, then I started drawing objects and characters that stood out or inspired me. I used real-life things as references. After a while, I started finding reference photos online to help me, but I don’t use them much anymore. I’m still learning every day.
Why did you choose art as a profession?
Art is what I love to do most, so it’s always been the only job I’ve ever wanted. My goal is to become a professional tattoo artist. I’m not there yet, but getting closer every day.
Who are your biggest influences?
My biggest influences aren’t so many people, more so art styles. Specifically art styles in video games, cartoons, comics, etc. Some of my biggest ones are Borderlands, Rage, BioShock, Spider-Man into the Spiderverse, and a lot of the Batman animated movies, just to name a few.
How do you become a successful artist?
Well, it’s hard to say because everyone’s journey is different, but I think it takes time, patience, commitment and persistence. You have to be willing to cross your boundaries and go past your comfort zones. Experiment and learn as much as possible. The biggest thing, though, is to love what you do. If you do that, it will show in your work and people will notice, eventually. Even if they don’t, as long as you love what you’re doing, that’s all the success you need.
What makes you good and different from others?
I think what sets me apart from others is, firstly, my style. I’d also like to think I’m multifaceted in art. I do digital art, paint, prints, traditional art, tattoos, logos, clothing art, hats, jewellery and more. I think I’m good at what I do because I’ve been doing it for so long. I’ve had and am getting plenty of practice each day.
What does your art represent and does art mean to you?
My art represents me and where I am in my life. It’s all about self-expression. I create things that make me (and hopefully others) feel something, whether it’s good or bad. That’s the really beautiful thing about art, is everything you create is a little piece of you that you can share with anyone. It’s making yourself vulnerable to the world and showing what’s below the surface.
