My name is Jolisa Long. This is about my creative passions and desire to make the world something more through creativity.

Artists who made me better.

  • M. C. Escher: Taught me that logic can be beautiful.
  • Yoshitaka Amano: Taught me to love my imagination unashamedly.
  • Syd Barrett: Warned me not to go too far.
  • Brian Froud: Showed me that a coffee stain can become art.
  • Roger Waters and the rest of Pink Floyd: Gave my desperate adolescence a soundtrack.
  • Yuichi Kumakura: Showed me that a story doesn't need to make sense to touch your heart.
  • Satoshi Kon: Reminded me that stories are about people, first and foremost.
  • H. P. Lovecraft: From whom I first saw the apocalyptic dread which consumed my young life reflected in writing, and exorcised those demons by giving them name.
  • Neil Gaiman: Who told me that to write, I first need to live. And then sit down and write.
  • Thom Yorke: Showed me that being neurotic isn't a death sentence.
  • Brenda Ueland: Without whom I would never have created anything.
  • I am thankful to each and every one of these people. I would be a worse person without them.

Every single work of art ever made, every work of art that you make, is a theory. And it’s a theory about the way art should or should not look…Art is a bridge to a vision and art is the vision. It lets you see something, and then it is what you see. It’s a medium through which people see the world. I don’t know what else is quite like that. Art is not optional. Art is necessary. Art is never as simple as you think it is.

Today I sat on the couch and held my dog’s paw while watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and picking my nose.
