Q: What a journey you have been on thus far! Let’s reflect back for a second though. When did your love for art start?
A: My love for art started when I was about 12yrs old. I would always sit and redraw my favorite cartoons.
Q: Growing up as an alternative unicorn was most likely not the easiest thing, although it sounds awesome nonetheless. What advice would you give to youth that may be at a crossroads of being themselves?
A: Be you authentically and unapologetically. People will laugh and talk regardless. Do what makes you happy now so you won’t miss out on happiness later.
Q: You’ve dabbled in many art forms; so, your arsenal of art media has got to be vast! What has been your favorite art medium to work with?
A: My favorite medium to is liquid latex. You can mold it and create whatever you need with it. Also, with liquid latex, applying prosthetics are so simple.
Q: Now, I know before branching out, you had years of experience creating spine-chilling monsters for the well-known RISE Haunted House. How long were you a special fx artist for RISE?
A: I worked for RISE for 4yrs before I started my own business.
Q: Do you still take special effects appts.? If so, how often and where can people book?
A: Due to Covid, I haven’t been taking FX or regular makeup appointments. Hopefully, the pandemic eases up soon though because I really miss working my magic on other canvases besides my own.
Q: Yes, being an artist during a global pandemic has been quite the journey! How do you keep going?
A: Honestly, it’s super hard to find motivation, but my social media platform and supporters keep me going. They hype me like no other and I look forward to sharing new projects with them.
Q: You’re amazing at channeling your artistic abilities into your other businesses, especially the ever-growing Haus Salon & Spa. Since you’ve been featured at showcases like RAW, do you see yourself participating in hair shows for your work with Haus as well?
A: I would love to do a hair show one day! I’d love to showcase fun styles on models while they’re also wearing a makeup look as well! That would be iconic!
Q: Let’s discuss another budding part of your artistry and connection to the beautiful humans of this world: becoming a social media influencer. How has it helped grow your art forms?
A: Becoming an influencer has helped grow my art by helping me get discovered so I can share more in the first place! Tagging brands and posting merchandise, along with a beautiful look, has caught the attention of come amazing companies, including Voogueme in China and Makeup A Murder!
Q: What moments have been your favorite in your art career thus far?
A: My favorite moments have actually come from being an influencer! I’ve gotten so many opportunities and met so many people worldwide that I don’t think I would have had the confidence to talk to in person. My platform allows me to speak volumes without me having to verbally speak, and I love it!
Q: What should those interested in following your journey and art look forward to?
A: Well, YouTube may be soon, which will include vlogging as well. A huge collaboration with a big social media personality is in the works too.
Q: Sounds good! Where should people keep up with all things Ty Jack?
A: People can follow me on Instagram at www.Instagram.com/_tyjack and www.TyJack.com.
