ARTIST INTERVIEW: Solomon Rajan
Tell us a bit about your work
I love working on different things, experimenting with styles and colours. I am totally influenced by all the great artists that I follow closely. I usually do Character Designs and Illustrations.
How did you get into art?
I started drawing back when I was in school.. funny story, but I am not going to go into details. I started drawing out of revenge and now I can’t get enough of it!
What are you working on next?
I have a ton of work in progress. Things are actually going a bit slow, but I have this line of artwork I have been trying to finish up. It’s a series of fan art from the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. It’s taking quite a while though.
Any advice for younger artists?
I learned this the hard way, don’t let anything or anyone control your art. Just keep moving it on your pace and never stop no matter what.
Also don’t compare yourself to another artist. No matter how good you get, never forget to always be humble.
What are your inspirations?
My favourite artists, anime, movies & games, even people. Basically, anything that moves me.

In short, I notice things for a living and try to point them out to people. I write about movies, television especially superhero films, pop culture and Hollywood. When not listening to start-up pitches, I play with puppies and pretend to like craft beer.
