Once you get me started, I won’t shut up about…
How drawing will change the way you see the world. And also about whatever new skill I'm obsessed with, whether it be DIY renovations, learning the flute, learning to surf, or a new image making technique that I can't stop playing with.
My superpower is…
Communicating things visually that I can't put into words.
A movie I never tire of is…
Tron, the old one and the new one. It blew my mind when I was little and I love the behind the scenes of the original of them rotoscoping like crazy to get the light effects.
My dream project would be…
Visual range for a department store or fashion brand that took a suite of drawings and applied them across all sorts of mediums like plates, clothing repeat patterns, etc.
The project I’ve been most inspired by recently is…
I'm always inspired by big scale projects, like jeremyville's sculptures in china. I follow alot of public art visual artists and love the fabrication process and end products with projects like this.
My process is a mixture of…
For the bulk of my client work I am drawing with pencil and paper and drawing digitally. For other work for myself or my personal explorations it might include anything from collage to cutting steel to photography, to woodwork.
