Jasmin Moore is an illustrator based in Belfast who has just finished studying at Ulster University Belfast. Jasmin spoke to The Jumble Magazine about finding humour in art, inspiration, and the lock down.
How would you describe your art?
I would describe my work as quirky and fun. I usually tend to make my illustrations humorous and just have a laugh with them.
What inspires you to create?
Definitely people. My granda was the first person to try to teach me to draw from a very early age. Ever since then I’ve wanted to be an artist. I’ve always loved drawing people. Everyone is so different you never get bored. Being from Northern Ireland you meet a lot of characters too, every- one has an interesting story to tell.
What makes your art personal?
I invest a lot of my own humour into my work. I like to illustrate things that make me laugh, so you get a sense of me in my work. I mostly work digitally, and use photoshop to paint and I use the same digital paint brush for all my images which I think gives them a slight sketchy, messy kind of feel that I love.
How has the lock down impacted your ability to create?
I’m from a tiny place called Islandmagee which is surrounded by beautiful scenery and beaches so I am never without inspiration. I am also very lucky to be a digital artist. As long as I have my tablet with me I am able to create no matter where I’m situated.
