Hey cmxt, Tell us a bit about yourself.

cmxt

Well, I’m from the UK, I love to skateboard and am rather fond of most stuff weird – Music, movies, art, etc etc

Cosmosys

When and how did you first become interested in Art?

cmxt

When I was about 12 years old, one of my older cousins introduced me to the Advent Children forums (Which have been down for over a year now, perhaps two) which was a discussion place for the Final Fantasy franchise. He used to make forum signatures for people and I was intrested and eventually he showed me photoshop and from then on I’ve been interested in art and design.

Cosmosys

What are your influences in general?

cmxt

Culture, music, people… Very general things which evoke my feelings – Stuff so simple which people often overlook to see the bigger picture. Oh, and the weird…

Cosmosys

Is anyone in your family an artist?

cmxt

Like I’ve already said, one of my cousins has went on to be a graphic design student, and so has his younger brother. I also have a distant relative who randomly gave my family a painting which was actually really good, but I’ve never met him in person or spoken online.

Cosmosys

What is your favorite piece so far in your career?

cmxt

Ermm, either ‘My World, Losing Itself’ due to it being one of my first conceptual pieces or ‘Animal Ancients’ because it was a milestone in a style I wanted to persue.

Cosmosys

What do you see yourself doing in the near future?

cmxt

Hopefully going to college for graphic design if I can get a place in the almost filled course and continue doing what I already do: piss about and have fun

Cosmosys

Is there anything else you would like to add?

cmxt

Turn off the lights, I’m watching back to the future. to ‘Patheys awesome’
