When did you realize you want to become an illustrator?

I was 14 years old. I  realized how much I enjoy drawing and coloring stuff.


If you weren’t an illustrator, what would you be?

Psychologist or carpenter


In terms of your craft, which taught you more, school or life? 

I wasn't a particularly brilliant student, I don’t know if the education system wasn’t tailored for someone like me or if I just didn’t get it back then. So the clear answer is life since I self-taught myself everything I do.

Usually, it’s all starts with the style or technique I want to explore. So most of my projects are just exercises on those new skills I am to acquire.

My son Noah is my biggest inspiration. He keeps me very close to the ground and very humble.
