Welcome fellow readers to A Morbid Minute, an exploration into the unknown where you get a brief glimpse of people who will definitely satisfy your morbid curiosity!
This week, Morbid Planet sits down with Eddie Milburn, an amazing airbrush artist for Crazything Art. Without further ado, Mr. Eddie Milburn…
Erin Chapman: Tell us a little about yourself and what you do? How you got into this line of work?
Eddie Milburn: I am Crazything. An airbrush artist from Kentucky. I have always been artistic, but for most of my life I had no way of really expressing my creativity.
EC: How long have you been doing this?
EM: Until Christmas day, 6.5 years ago, when my uncle gifted me an airbrush kit! I fell in love instantly! It came with everything I needed to get started. I recall, adding green paint and airbrushing a skull on the foam package that it came in! I have been airbrushing everything and anything, ever since. There is quite a process to completing a project though.
EC: Can you tell us a little about your process? What inspires you and how long does each piece take?
EM: Most think I just spray and I’m done. Most pieces, must be prepped, sanded, and cleaned before I can begin. After I airbrush the customers design, I must now protect it with some kind of sealer of clear-coat, depending on the substrate I painted.
EC: Since you started this journey, what has been your most memorable moment?
EM: My airbrush has began to take me to several places, and to meet ALOT of amazing people. Some with heart breaking stories of lost ones, so I can do a memorial piece. And others that just inspire those around them, to be the best you can be! It’s my dream to support my family with only my airbrush, and lead my 2 sons by example. I show them that with God and hard work, anything is possible. I am living proof to that. I now live my dreams every day! I don’t know how long that will last. That is up to the customers i suppose…
EC: Where can our readers find you online and with social media?
EM: If you would like to see my work, or order some for yourself, you can find me several different ways. Crazythingart.com is my website. I’m on Facebook. I have a YouTube channel if you search for Crazythingart airbrush. Instagram also. I take many orders on my Etsy page as well.
EC: What’s next for you? Do you sell your creations? If so, what would be the best way for our readers to reach out?
EM: Next i hope to expand my business, and begin larger projects, like more cars, trucks, and wall murals. I would like to travel some with my airbrush also, so I can create smiles all over with my art. I truly love what i do. But I cannot follow my dreams without the help of amazing people like you!
