How did you get started in illustrations? Looking back, would you do anything differently?
I was really motivated by fear – the fear of not making it work and having to find another way to make a living when all I really knew how to do was draw. Because I was freaked out, I was determined to make an illustration career happen.
Can you describe your creative process? Where do you start? What do you usually have on or around you?
What do you do to get out of a creative slump?
Sometimes interesting things happen if you just keep at it, even when you feel like you don’t have any good ideas.
You have worked with really big brands and publications. What is the one project you’re most proud of?
You seem to be on the pulse. How do you keep constantly innovating? Where do you look for inspiration these days?
I want to always be part of where the culture is going, rather than where it’s been.
What’s one dream project that you would love to do or be involved with?
What is one tool at your desk or workspace that you couldn’t live without?
What advice would you give to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps?
Make postcards of your best work and mail them out to art directors.
What does the future of design look like to you? What changes do you foresee in the near future that will affect your work?
What’s next for you?
