Clinton Lofthouse Interview
Tell us a little about yourself:
I grew up in Queensbury, Bradford. I believe art entered my life through my Grandad, Stanley Cowton. At a young age he would teach me about artists like Picasso and Hockney, and would help and encourage me to draw.
When I’m not creating art I like to explore my surroundings, England has so much history and cool landscapes i try to see as much of it as i can…which leads to my interest in the history of England. I am also a big fan of the paranormal.
I began creating art when I was a young boy. I would draw my own comics in pen. Usually the content was quite grisly as I would draw monsters and ghouls. I was into horror at a very young age as my cousin would babysit me and let me watch anything I wanted, which was always a horror movie.
The kind of images I yearned to create, would only be possible by using Photoshop.
When did you first start using Photoshop and how did you learn?
I am self taught in Photoshop. I picked up a camera in 2011, I then pretty much started using Photoshop 4-6 months after that. The kind of images I yearned to create, would only be possible by using Photoshop.
My learning process was a mixture of reading books and watching YouTube videos. I always say half an hour a day is you need to be able to learn and master Photoshop.
