This year I can’t wait to…
Not this year unfortunately, but NEXT year I have a book and an exhibition coming out, both of which I can't wait to share with people.
As a kid, I loved to draw…
Secret underground headquarters.
My superpower is…
Not drawing but a desire to draw almost all the time. I don't think I have much natural ability but I have an almost indefatigable urge to scribble.
My project I’m proudest of to-date is…
Probably my graphic novel 'An Interior Life", I feel like I tried something really ambitious and it's still something that connects with a lot of people.
I find a project rewarding when…
I feel like I've overcome some kind of challenge and made something that surprised me and satisfied the client's brief.
My process is a mixture of…
Impatience and then lots of patience. I always want to get the initial sketch done super fast then once it's approved I'm happy to just tune out and chip away at all the details till it's where I want it to be.
