Hi there! My name is Keith.

I'm an Interactive Design Manager for the Walt Disney Company, but all opinions/posts on this site are my own, not the Walt Disney Company's.

Oh, and that Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon in the above photo? I designed that. :D

Do you draw with music? If so, what kinds of music?

I can work either way! If I’m airbrushing, it has to be in silence since I can’t work in my room. If I’m doing digital art and am in the mood, I listen to my typical pop/disney music.

Answer them all... I DARE YOU.

..I don’t think that’s how it works. :P lol. How about I answer every 3rd question?

Do you prefer traditional drawing, or digital?
I’d have to say digital since it doesn’t leave a mess in my room.

Do you have a DeviantArt, personal website, or art blog?
I have a DeviantArt that I don’t update anymore, but my main hub for everything is www.keithlapinig.com

How often do you use references?
Every time.

Are you confident about your art?
NOPE. Just like with everything else in my life. :)

Do you prefer to keep your art personal, or do you like drawing things for other people?
I hate drawing things for other people. :P

Do you draw more today than you did in the past, or do you draw less?
I draw less.

What is the most difficult thing for you to draw?
Pretty much just drawing from my head. And once again, hands.

Are you confident that you’re improving steadily?
At the moment? Not really. No time!

Do you like to draw in silence, or with music?
It doesn’t really matter to me.

For traditional artists: what medium do you like most? (Pencil, charcoals, etc)
Airbrush!

What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist?
My drive to be an Imagineer some day. I work more on learning new mediums as opposed to strengthening my drawing skills since I’m not really going for any illustrator positions within the Company.

It’s time for another adventure in Japan! I went to a kaiten-zushi restaurant, and I had a lot of fun pushing random buttons to get food delivered directly in front of me. Sounds like heaven, right?

Ever wondered what it was like to meet and greet with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit?

If you didn’t know, there is a new Marvel Avengers STATION exhibit in New York City. Thanks to stitchkingdom, I was able to get inside and vlog it all for you guys!

Finally got to sit down and play seriously. :P haha. Next goal: 2 million!! #TsumTsum

I am completely terrified while laughing.

I just might have nightmares.
