Exclusive Interview with Casey Bell – Artistic Creator
NY Glam: How do you stay up to date with Creating?
I am a mixture of creating relevant art and creating unique art. If I see something on the news or in social media that catches my attention, I will create art in showing my perspective. When it comes to my unique art, I do not have to keep up to date, I do whatever I want. When you create unique art, it does not have to be up to date. Someone somewhere will enjoy it.
NY Glam: What are your goals as an Artistic Creator?
To cause the viewer to rethink. We as humans have a habit of being one-minded and not opening up to other views. Hopefully the art I create will open the eyes of those who are blind to other perspectives. I do not want to force them to understand other perspectives, I just want them to recognize that other perspectives exist.
NY Glam: What does Designing mean to you?
Creating something that is unique to the client/customer.
NY Glam: How would you describe your style?
All over the place. Mostly unique and different. No specific style other then me.
NY Glam: Describe your biggest accomplishment to date?
A selection of my art can be purchased at a local store, Harriet’s Hidden Treasures in West Creek, NJ.
NY Glam: What skills are important for a successful career in Designing?
The first is P.A.M. Publicity, advertising, and marketing. No matter how well your designing talent is, if no one knows you exist, you will not get work. Learning how to get the word out that you are a designer is the first skills you need to gain. Once you get clients doing your best work both in talent and in work ethics (Responding/replying to clients in a timely manner, being kind, delivering work in a timely manner, etc.). Lastly, the skill of not being offended. There is a
designer for everyone, but every designer is not for everyone. Do not feel badly or disappointed when rejected. It does not mean your work is bad, it simply means your design does not fit the client.
NY Glam: What are your favorite stores for inspiration?
My inspiration comes from current events and my unique (weird) mind. Stores are not a part of my inspiration.
NY Glam: What are you currently working on?
I am currently working on the marketing side of my business.
NY Glam: Do you express yourself creatively in any other ways?
I am all over the art world. I am a fashion designer, graphic artist/designer, podcaster, filmmaker, playwright, author, songwriter, poet, and YouTuber.
NY Glam: How has your work evolved since you began creating Artistic work?
I am creating more fantasy, unrealistic, type artwork today than in the past.
NY Glam: What is your advice for aspiring young Artistic Creators?
Research the business side of art, save lots of money, and then Just Do It! The only way you can fail is by giving up. Mistakes are lessons, rejection means you knocked on the wrong door, keep going. Be kind to everyone you meet, you never know which one will be the one to give you a great opportunity. Be open to learn. Never change who you are or your art for anyone’s approval.
NY Glam: What does “being creative” mean to you?
To create something in a unique manner that catches the attention of another soul.
NY Glam: What has been your personal key to success?
Not giving up.
NY Glam: What’s next?
I am in the process of marketing a children’s book series I published, “American History.”
