Here’s a little Q & A with the grand prize winner of the very first Hot Mess Art Contest!
HOT MESS: How did you first find out about Hot Mess?NEISHA LOCKWOOD: I caught a link to it from Emily Chan’s blog on DeviantArt.HM: Nice! We LOVE StupidFox. So, after checking out the comic, what made you want to enter the contest?NL: I read the comic and realized that I seriously identify with Anna – even though I have never been the “new kid,” I have always been an outsider. I love the characters and their personalities, so I wanted to show that even if I didn’t win!HM: So, what’s your overall goal as an artist?NL: I have never thought about that actually. I really just love art and expressing myself through art.HM: Ok, so as an artist, what would be your dream project to work on?NL: I actually have had this crazy idea to modify a bunch of mannequins for a while now…HM: Ha, that sounds cool – I think I know what you’re next contest entry will be! So who is your favorite Hot Mess character?NL: Definitely Scooziecat!MH: Why is that?NL: He is sort of the voice of reason and reality in Anna’s world and I relate most to him. And he is super cute.HM: Do you think of yourself as a Hot Mess?NL: Oh, for sure. I will be the first to admit that I have quite a few screws loose – or missing entirely.
HM: Well, congratulations and thank you again for checking out the site – we’re working hard to get you, and everyone else who clicks over more content than ever before… as well as a soon to be announced second art contest!
