WHAT DOES DESIGN MEAN FOR YOU?

WHICH ARTIST HAS MOST INFLUENCED YOUR STYLE?
“So many artists influence me all the time, I love to see other peoples work, different styles and the way everyone does thing a bit differently to each other. If had to pick some favourites I guess I would say Audrey Kawasaki, Richard Kuoch (Podgy Panda), Frank Kozik and Nicolas Marlet.”

WHICH IS THE THING THAT YOU USUALLY FIND EASIER TO DO IN YOUR WORKS? AND WHAT ABOUT THE HARDER ONE?
“The hardest part is thinking of ideas when I am not so motivated. Sometimes it is a struggle to get started but once I do things usually happen quickly. The easiest part is painting outlines, for some reason I really love just using plain flat colours and taking the time to make them as smooth as possible.”

DO YOU USE TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE YOU ARE WORKING? IF IT IS SO, WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG?
“I actually hardly ever listen to music. Sometimes I will listen to drum and bass, dub or hip hop type tunes but most of the time I have a bad habit of watching cartoon series like Adventure Time or My Little Pony while I work. I think I am a pretty good multi-tasker but if I have a serious deadline then I will work to music.”
