On Tuesday, Ryan Kingslien and Jon Foster sat down for a conversation, artist to artist:
So tell me about your education, because you're spanning the 2D and 3D. And you've been at this game for a bit, so talk to me about your education, like where did you go to school, where did you get started?
I went to ... Well I didn't go to art school right away. I wasn't a very good high school student and I didn't know what I wanted to do, and so I did go to a local college after graduating high school. But after a year and a half without any real direction I left. I was still living at home with my father and he's a military man, he says, "That's fine but you gotta get a full time job and pay a little rent." Which wasn't anything terrible. So worked full time for a year and thought about what I wanted to do, and reapplied to schools.
So I reapplied and decided that I wanted to go to art school. I'd always liked art but I wasn't the art kid in high school, and...
So glad you're here. Let's stay in touch!
