Five Questions with Jeremy Fish
We asked SF artist Jeremy Fish a thing or twoBy Dann Gaymer on 31/5/13
We already heard about Mr.Fish once this week from the words of Scott Bourne, today we get the facts right from the horse's mouth.
AWEH: What does an average day in the life of J.Fish consist of?
Jeremy: I work at night, so I sleep until noon. Coffee and fresh air. Eat something nice. Run errands, make phone calls, get supplies. Around 6pm start to draw or paint. Hope it goes well. Go to sleep at 4-5am. Repeat.
AWEH: What mediums are you enjoying at the moment?
Jeremy: Pen and paper currently. I don’t have any shows coming up, so I am doing a lot of illustration projects at the moment.
AWEH: Can you give us some insight into the artwork you did for the cover of A Room With No Windows?
Jeremy: Like the board graphics I drew for him when he was a pro skateboarder, Scott always has a firm visual direction with his projects. He basically designed it, I just drew the damn thing. It’s what I enjoy most about working with Scott. He is a good art director because he knows what he wants!
AWEH: What's got you excited and inspired in San Francisco right now?
Jeremy: Not much. It’s a tough time right now. Scott’s book makes reference to the "dot com boom" in his novel. We are now experiencing the second major wave of this boom. We are currently being white washed by young rich tech nerds.
AWEH: What have you got in the pipeline?
Jeremy: Working on a big show for next year in Los Angeles...in between drawing some cool new projects. Spending time with my old lady, travelling up and down the coast in our mint 1976 Dodge van.
