32: Sebastien Millon
When we last put the spotlight on 100 creative forces in Phoenix, it was no secret there were more than 100 individuals who were making waves in the local arts community. So as we count down to our annual Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome (back) to 100 Creatives.
Sebastien Millon says he creates imagery that features "animals, creatures, and kids up to all sorts of shenanigans. The humor can range from cute to a bit darker but the goal is always to inspire laughter and be fun."
I came to Phoenix with ... a one eyed one legged baby tyrannosaurus rex by the name of Bernard.
I make art because ... I love getting to create imagery, it makes me happy and for me it functions as both work, play, and therapy all in one! And the bonus is when my imagery makes other people smile and happy smile.
I'm most productive when ... I haven't been bitch-slapped and cursed at all night long by bunny. That kind of thing takes a toll on my productivity.
My inspiration wall is full of ... children's books, art books, and contemporary artists that inspire me.
I've learned the most from ... my parents and sister.
Good work should always ... make you feel something. Whether those feelings are bad or good, so long as art can make you feel something, it is succeeding at some level.
The Phoenix creative scene could use ... more velociraptors on unicycles. But on a serious note, we really do need more velociraptors.
The Creatives, so far ... (And while you're here, check out 100 Tastemakers on Chow Bella.)
