let's dance in Delilah's awkward arms

i'm a fan of art, inspired by art, and basically grow with art. that is maybe one of the reasons i can't take off my eyes at Delilah Duong - dancing in my awkward arms 's blog. her outstanding artworks just can't stop leave my mind. 
well, here's a little bit of review of her artworks:








and here's our little conversations :)
DO READ! ha ha ha 
oh anyway, whatever you found italic that is slipped between the answers, that must be me replying (or commenting - or bothering, or... um, k)


Hi! Will you tell me a little bit about yourself? 

I come from Vietnam, and I’m currently studying ‘Graphic Design’ major in Ho Chi Minh city University of Architecture. I skipped a year after I graduated from Highschool and stay home because I didn’t know what I wanted to do.


  When did you start drawing? Any extraordinary drama that happened along? :p

I’ve been drawing since I’m a kid. I love to read manga (I still do now though) and I could easily copy pictures of any manga I like. But because I’ve spent my Junior- and Highschool just studying lame subjects so one day I could work my ass off to be some office lady. When I was in grade 12 I thought ‘What the fuck am I really gonna stuck here with this boring life and die even before I get buried?’. That time I haven’t thought of back to drawing yet, I just log into my tumblr everyday and drowned with models and fashion and artwork, then somehow I found my motivation back from the war, wounded but still good though.


What inspired you to draw? Do you find drawing like a routine or just a hobby that pass once in a while?

There was a time I waited for inspirations to come. Then I read a quote: “I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.” — Pearl S. Buck. NICE QUOTE! So now I draw everyday, it’s like a thing I must do like eating or watching tv. Besides, I don’t like going out much or even doing chores, basically all I know how to do is drawing.


Any hobby besides drawing?

Shopping. Watching movies. I have tons of movies I planned to watch. I also want to learn new languages. -learn Indonesian! lol :p


Your best best best (or most favourite) artwork you’ve ever made is…

I haven’t had one. I love all my work equally. I might be love one so much when I first finished it, but one or two weeks later I don’t really like it anymore and I seek for what greater.


Where do you picture yourself in 5 years? (ha-ha it sounds like a job interview)

Either fashion illustrator/designer for a model agency or fashion magazine or casting director because it would be awesome, also I want to be Alexander Wang’s housemaid and prepare his clothes everytime he wants to go out, is that too much to ask? It’ll be great if I could became a stylist too. I love a job if it allows me to see good looking people all day haha.


Best-looking man in suit (I know we have the same obsession lol) who’d you like to rape?

Because of my passion for male models, it’s really hard to just generate a name. But in my mind there will always be one perfect man in suit and that would be Keanu Reeves in his movie Constantine (2005). He is so sad and cool I just want to tie him up, put him in my wardrobe and never let him out hahaha. i would definitely do the same :p


 Any alter ego?

I might have one. I feel like I want to do great things and achieve so much but 49% of me is dead inside and doesn’t even want to wake up or talk to people. I have to fight constantly.


 Top 3 bucket lists!

-          Buy my mom and dad a house in the centre so they could make money from people’s renting and live wealthy without having to do anything.
-          Visit Hongkong, stay at Mandarin hotel.
-          Maybe track down and kill all the people do harm to animals. I need to learn witchcraft for this.


 If you were not a human, what would you like to be?

Unicorn is good.


thanks Delilah for the interview! had so much fun reading it hahaha :D good luck with everything, hun!
