Rocket - Peter Draws
I chose to post about one of my favorite creators, Peter Deligdisch, who is an artist of a multitude of different mediums as well as a Youtuber posting his artwork along with tips on how to create art. Peter was born on July 9th, 1990 and has been posting to his Youtube channel since 2009 where he has amassed a following of over 700k fellow artists and fans. Peter has never taken an art class in his life and really tries to push the point that anyone can do art in anyway they like, and he talks a lot about just beginning. Beginning is what I always struggle with but after listening to his therapeutic, Bob Ross-esque voice for hours on end, I now struggle a little less with beginning my artworks. This is very inspirational and helps me get started on a lot of my wire pendants as well as a lot of my illustrations. He is also extremely humble about his artwork, almost denoting them to "doodles that take longer" however most people disagree, including myself as his works are master pieces every time. He also states he the only way someone can experience artists block is "physically blocked from making art..." which is a hard truth but makes you realize how open ended art is potentially making it easier for you to get started on a project.

A reddit AMA (ask me anything) where users quite literally ask Peter any questions they have about him including lessons hes learned as an artist, and how his finances work coming mainly from Youtube and Twitch streaming.
