I love DC and Marvel Superheroes. Would be hard to choose only one. Batman, I guess.

Mainly singers and spiritual people. See question “who do I admire in my profession” and “favorite writers”.
Which movie would i recommend to see once in a lifetime? 
I’m mainly a SF/superheroes/fantasy fan, when it copes to movies. Books are good for thinking and learning, but cinema, for me, is only entertainement. From Star Wars to the Crow, there’s so many movies I enjoy watching all over again, when I have time.
What role plays art in my life and work?

My parents, I guess.

Nothing really, because passion comes and goes every once in a while. Otherwise nothing would discriminate passion from an ordinary day.

Anyone who seems passionate enough about his work and has something to share with us.
