Student artist Mia Hernandez, a sophomore at EHS, started to draw when she was in third grade because she enjoys drawing. She sat down with Falcon News to discuss her art.
Question: What’s your favorite thing to draw?
Answer: “The designs of my characters I’ve made,” adding that she especially likes anime.
Q: Who inspires you to draw?
A: “Animators inspire me to draw. Watching amazing pieces of work fly by on a screen drives me to want to create my own.”
Q: What creative things do you do besides drawing?
A: “I like to paint even though I’m not the best at it. I still try my best.”
Q: Tips for a new artist?
