DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 8, 2015, 1:14 AM
Hi Everyone, I hope you're all having a great day.
I just saw that it was DA's 15th Birthday, which is pretty cool.
I read the article and they were encouraging people to submit journals with their questionnaire, and I figured, hey, why not?
So, the questions they asked are below, and my answers follow each one.


  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? / I have been on DA for 8 years. Wow, that sounds like a long time. It's almost 1/3rd of my lifetime.

  2. What does your username mean? / a kinase is a type of protein that adds a phosphate group to specific targets, and in biology, they are vital signaling molecules. A universal kinase would be something that can phosphorylate any target.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. / "Human, Scientist, Artist" / that wasn't a very creative answer, but it was concise.

  4. Are you left or right handed? / I am right handed

  5. What was your first deviation? / lol, it was terrible, but it was called rage of troy. I had just read the Iliad at the time, and kind of sympathized with the people of the besieged city of troy. War allows us to do terrible things to each other, but that doesn't make it right.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? / My favorite type of art to make is literature. I make a lot more fractals than I write stories, but writing fiction allows you to interact with your imagination on a deeper level, and I really enjoy that.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? / Hrm.... tough, but probably painting. I love making abstract art, but sometimes I want to make a specific image of something very concrete, or a fantasy world, and just lack the skill to create it. I really admire the incredible artists here of every discipline, but I probably envy the painters (both conventional and digital) the most.

  8. What was your first favourite? / It was a piece by GunnerRomantic which is sadly now in storage. I think they aren't active on DA anymore, but it was 8 years ago, and there are a lot of new artists who have joined since then. No internet community is static, and DA holds a lot of beautiful art and incorporates a huge variety of talented people.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? / Probably fantasy landscapes, but I haven't done a comprehensive analysis on the ~20,000 pieces I've favorited.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? / Oh, that's not really fair. In fact, it's so unfair that I'm not going to answer it. I do have a lot of artists I really like, some mainstream, some less so, but I can't pick just 1.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? / dumahdie She's a good friend, and I've known her for a long time, but never seen her in person.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? / Yes, I've had some great conversations with a few artists here, and I feel my life is better for it.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? / My computer and/or a pencil

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? / Sitting on a rock in the middle of a mountain stream, it's where I came up with the idea to my favorite story, and it's just a great refreshing experience to be out in nature.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? / I am not sure, but I loved when Zueuk released the apophysis 3d hack, and I felt like I was on the ground floor of exploring it. Sometimes I wish I devoted myself more to becoming as good at fractal art as some of the other artists on here, but it's hard when you're being pulled in multiple directions. In the end, art comes from the heart, and if all of your heart isn't in something, it's not going to be your best, or as beautiful as it could be. You can't force yourself to make truly great art, rather, it has to emerge from within you. Not all art can be captured or mass disseminated. Some art exists ephemerally in the little things we do from day to day, if only we let ourselves feel, and then express ourselves.

Sorry for the tangent on that last answer, got lost in thought. Anyway, I hope that satisfies the questionnaire. 
Best wishes to you all, and I promise to release some new stuff soon.

I have some mixed feelings about this piece. I made it a while back but didn't want to submit it by itself, so.... I waited. Anyway, I do hope you like it, even though I'm not sure how well I ended up tying the elements that make up the fractal together.

This was a fun piece to make. I hope you like it.
To those of you who don't know what parkour is.... google it, because you're missing out.

Today, I felt alive. I came up with 3 entire systems of genome manipulation using CRISPR/Cas9 gene drives that may or may not work, and also might be entirely new ideas. I spent a solid hour pacing back and forth throwing wild ideas at a metaphorical dartboard and then trying to vet each of them for feasibility and utility.

When I encountered a dead end, and was on the verge of conceding that what I wanted might not be possible, I would just think "bullshit, just because something isn't obvious, doesn't make it impossible; try harder."

To those of you who don't know what a gene drive is... let's just say that it is an incredibly powerful and dangerous technique for altering the genetics of an entire population of organisms. I work on plants for research purposes, and I do not advocate the use of any technology like this for any applications that haven't been thoroughly checked and approved for safety concerns. In fact, I think using this technology in open ecosystems might not be the best idea. However, the potential it has in a controlled setting is astounding, and if it can be effectively deactivated before it leaves that setting, then perhaps we've found our most useful tool yet.

Anyway, art, right... 
I've been making more fractals lately, and haven't submitted them all yet.
I feel like my standards and understanding of how to make interesting fractals in apophysis continue to improve. Hopefully those of you who watch me aren't disappointed with my work.
There is a short story that I started years ago that I want to finish and submit soon.

For a year and a half, I felt like my upcoming prelims were strangling the life out of me. There were times where I couldn't even remember what it felt like to be happy. Now that I've passed them, I feel like a noose has been taken off of my neck, like a burlap sack has been cast off my head, and I can finally see and breathe again.

I want things again. No, not material things, but I have actual goals again. I remember now why I got into this business, and I swear that I will do what I can to have a positive impact on the world.
Peace be upon all of you, and may stars light the paths you walk.

Just a tweak of an old flame I made. It's nothing really special, but I thought it was interesting enough to submit.
Anyway, I hope you like it.

As a 23-year old Ph.D. student, there are many things in this world that I have yet to learn. I tend to take tasks very seriously, and the creation of art is important to me.

I began making fractal art back in 2006, shortly after I joined DA. Since that time, I have competed in a number of fractal contests and won several. My techniques vary significantly from some that you see among other fractal artists. I have remained on the outskirts of the community, which has in some ways stunted my growth as an artist, but simultaneously challenged me to develop my own techniques and gain a better understanding of the underlying mathematical principals that govern fractals. However, I have learned that it doesn't matter how much time you spend on techniques if you don't put your soul into the art you're making. It doesn't matter what median it is, without passion all you get is a hollow image, devoid of feeling.

While most of my art consists of fractals, I love to write, and I value my prose and poetry just as highly as my best fractals.

I am always eager to help people out, so if you have any questions about how I make my art, or if you would like me to make something for you, feel free to ask. B-)

Art

Art is the ultimate expression of the mind and soul. Within all of us lies the omnipresent potential to find peace, agony, joy and ire in all walks of life. How we choose to percieve situations is what defines us as individuals, and how we react is the ultimate test of our character.

The community on DeviantArt is truly incredible because of the amazing people who devote vast amounts of time and energy to make it so. Always remember to be respectful towards others and their art, for a stray callous word against something of extreme individual importance can cause far more torment than intended.
