I'm an often confused illustrator who loves spending my time being all curled up in my well watching cartoons, reading children books & comics whenever I'm not creating characters and pictures.
Have you always been creative and artistic?
Yeppers, for as long as I can remember, I've always enjoyed drawing! My mum used to do lots of artsy crafty things when I was a kid so that fuelled my passion to do artsy things too.
How would you describe the style of your work?
Hmm, I would describe my work as whimsy and cartoony with a sprinkle of adolescence.
What’s in your pencil case and what’s your favorite tool?
Red col-erase pencils, pentel brush pens, Kakuno fountain pen, Pigma Micron (0.1) and midliner highlighters. Favourite tool would be the red col-erase pencil!
Who is your favorite superhero?
Gosh, I actually don't have one as I don't watch or read much superhero related work but I'll go with Buttercup as I grew up with The Powerpuff Girls and I like her the most.
If you could have one super power what would it be?
This is tough but teleportation would be great! I will finally be able to avoid crowds.
Where do you look for inspiration?
Mostly from other artists' work, things I like in general such as Mid Century Modern stuff, various things from the 20s to the 60s, toys, fashion and from my surroundings, especially people.
Who are your favorite artists or comic book authors?
Oh gosh, this is gonna be reallly hard to narrow down from my giant list of artists that I look up to. Major inspirations are Mary Blair, The Provensens, Ellen Surrey, Scott Wills, Mike Dutton, Marc Boutavant, Robin Joseph and Joey Chou for their great use of shapes and colour. Chris Sasaki, Willie Wills, Amélie Fléchais, Andrew Shek and Cory Loftis for character designs. Lastly, Luke Pearson and Craig Thompson are my favourites for comics.
