I’m doing research for my new story, and I’ve got a question for everyone.
Given the opportunity to meet any artist, be it painter, musician/composer or writer (past or present…or both) who would it be and why? Feel free to list as many as you want.
In terms of present artists, I’d like to meet…
Brian Froud – his paintings and drawing amaze me and I’d love to watch him work.
Charles deLint – I love his stories. I’d love to talk to him about his inspiration and his process.
Angela Knight – Mostly, I’d just want to bow down to her genius.
Joss Whedon – Again, bowing would be in order – the man has it all – dialogue, plotting, world building. I heart him.
Adam Duritz of Counting Crows – The man is a brilliant lyricist and composer – probably in need of copious amounts of anti-depressants, but I adore him anyway.
Kate Rusby – I love her music, and she seems like she’d be fun to hang out with.
Past artists would include…
Arthur Rackham – His work inspired some of my favorite present day artists.
John Waterhouse – Predictably, I love Pre–Rhaphalite art.
Jim Henson – I adore the Muppets, not to mention Labyrinth and Dark Crystal.
The Bronte sisters – I’m imagining they were the products of a relatively dysfunctional household – I’m sure we’d have a great time.
Lord Byron – I’d just like to see the man in action.
Mozart – Maybe I’ve seen Amadeus too many times, but I’m betting he’d be interesting.
So…who would you choose?
