You have a very appealing style.What advice can you give to artists struggling to find their groove?
Your subject matter is almost always people – A huge range of types of people. – What inspires you to create a character?
There’s a fast and loose confidence to your work that I love. How long does a typical finished piece take you?
Your work is so solid, I find myself questioning my role as an artist. Will you remember us when you’re rich and famous?
There is a lot of animated content out there these days. What films or shows are on your short list for inspiration right now?
