KD: Hi Daisy! Thanks so much for taking the time to talk about your awesome artwork with our readers. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you became interested in art?
DE: Hi there! Sure! I’m Daisy Ein, and I’m an illustrator and musician from the United States. I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t like to draw, and I’ve been a Nintendo fan since… as early as I can remember? I particularly loved Super Mario when I was really small, and I loved to draw fan art of the characters. Super Mario 2 was particularly special to me, and I loved to draw comics where Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach went on adventures together, haha.
DE: Even though I’ve always loved art and video games, there for a while I wanted to be a musician. I studied music for quite a while, growing up. My favorite instrument is the keytar, and I love covering video game tracks. I’m also writing the soundtrack for the indie games me and my bud @ZapLayden are working on. Here’s a sample, if you’d like a listen!
