Creator Profile - [Em]etic

The brains behind the amazing paintings and drawings at [Em]etic got in touch with me a little while ago and answered some questions.  I'm sorry it took me so long to tell you all about this amazing talent!

Tell us about yourself?

My name is Emma. Or Em. I paint and draw under the name [Em]etic. An emetic is a drug that induces vomiting... :P I have a fascination with the bizarre. I dream a lot. I like to tell things how they are. Or how I think they are :P Everyone shits and everyone has picked their nose at least once. So nobody is too classy for anyone else. I like to paint the world how I see and imagine it. I think a lot of people can relate to snot and vomit. Everyone’s been there, whether they’ll admit it or not. I take the piss a lot. People seem to like that. 

What do you create? 

I paint skateboards, paintings on canvas and wood, design t-shirts and other bits and pieces. I would love to be a tattoo artist. So one day I may be inking some bodies as well. :)

How long have you been making things?  What was the first thing you made?
I have been creating since I was old enough to hold a pencil. As cliché as that sounds, I’ve been interested in art from a young age. The first thing I remember making is a cotton ball stuffed monster in Kindergarten. I remember the teacher putting a blob of paint onto each of our desks and we finger painted patterns into it before pressing our monster pictures down on top to be printed with our designs. I love that about art. Making a mess with paint is so fun. :)

Where do you get your inspiration?
Life. This question is so difficult to answer in any less than a million words. Everything inspires me. Mostly quotes and phrases, books and films and my life experiences. People I have met and people I see on the TV. Things I want to say or things I have dreamt or think about. It’s endless.

How can people contact you?
My facebook page is where most of the action is.
Or drop me an email – emetic_@live.com.au
I have a website in progress, hopefully that will be up and running very soon!

Chocolate Icecream

This icecream is simple and easy to make, but be warned, it is VERY chocolate-y!  Definitely feel free to tweak the recipe!

*1 pack (300 grams) of silken tofu  $3.20
*1/2 cup of raw sugar                       $0.11
*3 tbsp of cocoa                                $0.42
*1 tsp of vanilla

1.  Mix all the ingredients together and blend, blend, blend!
2. Put it in a container, stick it in the freezer and nom when ever you want (just wait a few hours for it to set - I left it overnight).

Total: $3.73.

It was a bit too powerful for me straight up, so I think next time I will use it to make a milkshake!  Using soymilk of course ;).
