~~~~ UK GARAGE ~~~~
"Much like Jungle, Drum and Bass music before it, Garage (typically UK Garage or UKG) shares its origins on the streets of London and is a crucial part of British pirate radio culture. with its snuffly hi hats, punchy kicks, cheesy vocals and futuristic sound effects, garage is a sound to instantly make one move. (or at least bop their heads) Despite briefly breaking into the UK mainstream at the turn of the millennium Garage is a largely underground genre and despite not being well known in name, the sound was hugely influential in electronic music. spawning the likes of the aggressive UK Grime movement, UK Funky, the northern Bassline sound, and everyone's favorite... Dubstep. trickles of UKG can even be found in big video games like Sonic"
"The mix is pretty much all vinyl records(with he exception of three tunes) This is in no way a professional standard mix... beatmatching is a bit wobbly here n' there and the needles on my crappy turntables arn't as crisp sounding as they used to be! none the less! I think both Garage fans and new listeners to the genre will highly enjoy the level of late nineties / early naughties 2stepping borderline grime pirate radio attitude I tried to emulate in this mix! as well as featuring some new bangers!"

Do you like sea lions?
How long have you been drawing?
I would generically answer "All my life" because in some ways that is true. However I only took up drawing "seriously" around late 2010. (coincidentally when I Joined DeviantART and got into "furries" / Anthro)
Have you studied art in education?
Throughout highschool all I would do during class was sit at the back and draw comic strips when I was supposed to be doing math. Art in school wasn't my idea of fun so I didn't enjoy doing it really. However I pulled through in the end and got decent grades for it... Now I am currently studying illustration (in my second year) at university in London.
How did you get ""good"" at drawing?
Alot of people like to say practice makes perfect. and in some context that's true. However I believe what truly acts as a vehicle for improvement is "Effort" and "ambition". Put your all into everything you do. Think to yourself. "I wan't to make this piece of art better than the last. Don't be lazy and half arse anything!
Where do your ideas come from / what inspires you?
Sitting at the back of a grimey London bus listening to Banging tunes and going raving (usually by myself)
Do anything els besides art?
Besides arting I am quite heavily involved in music. As a side hobby I collect records and DJ under the alias "JAI Q". I have also been dabbling in music production using FL studio. For more of an insight on my music (mixes and prods) check out my soundcloud --> soundcloud.com/jai-q
Iv'e noticed a sexualised tinge to a good handful of your work. Care to explain? >u> ...
There's No denying I feel a little bit awkward talking about this but it can't go unspoken about. It's mainly a marketing "thing" ... It's a little technique iv'e used for knocking up views quickly in the hopes that perhaps someone will discover my more serious work. ... Oh fuck it who am I kidding! I love sassy Women!
Are you a furry!?
I draw anthro characters so I guess??? I don't really care?
Art, Tools and Apparatuses
I can't tell if your art is traditional or digital. HALP???
See next question.
What do you use to make your art and how?
Cheap 2B Pencils, Scrap paper, a Scanner and Photoshop elements 7. Sometimes I use an ink pen and a water brush www.scribblers.co.uk/acatalog/… if im feeling fancy! I also use Microsoft Paint for pixel art here and there. As for the process it should be fairly self explanatory now lol! Scan in the drawing and Photoshop the hell out of that motherfucker!
