Firstly, we would love to get to know you a little better!

1. You have recurring characters in your artwork, can you tell us about them?

The character in this campaign… is my representation of people who have seen things. With the wide bright diamond eyes as opposed to another set of characters whose eyes are covered and are hedonists.

2. What is the weirdest or most unexpected source of inspiration you’ve ever had for a piece of art?

Hehe, not sure I’m allowed to write that. Would be a PR nightmare.

3. If you could only use one art medium for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

I would usually say a brush pen as I’m a draftsman, but I’m getting okay at this painting stuff so maybe oil painting…

4. You’ve worked with LØCI multiple times, how do our values and style align with your artwork?

I have I suppose, they’re pretty laid back in their approach which I appreciate, and they want a more equitable relationship between external makers and themselves, so it makes working with them a no-brainer.

5. What message would you give aspiring artists?

Just keep doing it and don’t hide.
