Interview of Christian Early for MHAF

The Madison House Autism Foundation featured Christian Early as one of their artist. This is an excerpt of the article:

What inspires Christian’s art?

Christian just loves to create things from his head. He creates these animals and characters that are unique, unusual, and whimsical. While he is creating them, he makes noises and makes up stories in his head of what they are doing or where they are going. His characters come from his imagination. His cats have personalities. His dinosaurs are happy. His lions are not dangerous. His people are always smiling. His world is perfect and full of harmony and definitely contagious.

Does Christian’s autism help with his artistry?

As a mother, I can say that the way he is and the way he sees the world definitely helps him create a world of innocence few of us are able to imitate. His world is full of joy and happiness, so his characters breed those feelings. Christian thinks everyone is good. Though if he doesn’t like you, you better watch out. He is great at ignoring those few he doesn’t like.

Christian, what is something that not many people know about you?

I turn on a Darth Vader lamp every night before I go to bed and I have a pair of make-belief Dracula teeth hidden in my Darth Vader trunk, which I use when I am bored. I put them on, look at myself in my bathroom mirror, and smile.
