What tools do you use most for your work?
Fiskars scissors, my Epsom GT 20000 A3 scanner and sticky fixers. I haven’t touched glue since the discovery of the sticky fixer about nine years ago. If Sellotape are reading this, then please endorse me and this message, thank you.
What inspires your work?
Nature, surrealism, exploration, darkness, joy, metamorphosis, empathy. I like a juxtaposition of joy and positivity and humour combined with quite weird and fucked up things. I like weird things that make me laugh, silly characters, things being a bit nonsensical and irreverent. Creating characters or scenes that are a bit off, alien, or transcendental to the people involved.
And how important do you think it is to land on a particular style as an illustrator?
I think it’s important to experiment and try new things, I say this as someone who has belly flopped into one extremely specific thing. Having a distinct voice can be important in claiming your space in an oversaturated market. Just keep your options open and adapt and evolve where you can.
