In our second installment of “Cannabis Art,” Illinois News Joint is pleased to introduce the incorrigible artist Sabrina.
Sabrina makes no bones about how much she loves to smoke weed and create art, so combining the two was a no-brainer. And now, she is making money at it.
“I’ve been an artist ever since I popped out of my mama’s womb, been practicing since I was a kid,” she said. “It was the only thing I was good at, really, so I just stuck with it. As I got older, I got more involved in art. I was drawing all the time and also smoking all the time so I thought I might as well blend them and make weed art.”
Though Sabrina enjoys drawing and painting, she mostly sticks with digital art because it is the most cost and time efficient.
“My process involves going out into my backyard and sparking up a blunt,” she said. “I smoke and think about how much I love weed and how I wish it was an actual person who could be here with me. I then have to express my love for weed in the form of art. My whole account is basically my love letter to weed.”
Consuming cannabis is part of every waking moment for her, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“It keeps me loving life, and when you love life, you love to work hard,” she said. “More specifically to art, weed is my passion, and art is born out of passion, so it helps to keep me inspired and raw.”
A lot of Sabrina’s inspiration comes from anime, and she admits she is “kind of a weeb.”
“I love everything about anime,” she said. “The style, the colors, the dramatics. It’s one of the most pristine art forms, and watching anime gets me even more hyped to make some dope art.”
Recently, she has been enjoying an artist on Instagram @therealsnipster.
“I’m completely obsessed with Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure so her comics do a great job at feeding my addiction,” Sabrina said. “Plus her art style is really great. Her work is always so soft and emotional. It makes me feel a lot of things while looking at it. I feel like emotion is a really important element in art.”
