General
Greeting Edwardian! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your Full Of Character vol. 1 art book?
What was the inspiration for Full Of Character Vol.1?
Was this your first book?
What advice would you give to other artists thinking of pursuing an Art Book?
What are the “Animal Alphabet” and “Animal Alphabet Fairy Tale Edition” projects?
Those shape of the week drawings are a lot of fun. Is that an ongoing thing our listeners can participate in?
Work
Is your process mostly digital these days?
How do you mix it up to keep things fresh?
Your designs have a disctinctive sharp/angular look. Is that inspired by anything?
Have you ever considered doing any video tutorials?
How long did it take you to form your distinctive style? Was it a concious choice, or is that simply how you tend to draw?
Books
In Full of Character Volume 1 you have “pieces inspired by some of Edwardian’s favorite tv shows, movies, and fictional stories.” how did you handle the copyright connundrum many artists face when publishing fan art along with their own original pieces.
Do you plan to keep putting out books? Can we expect a volume 3?
