Give us a brief introduction about yourself
My name is Sedki Alimam, I am a hardworking art director by day and an artist that draws all night.
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.
How do you start working on a project?
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.
Who is the most inspiring person to you?
My son Noah is my biggest inspiration. He keeps me very close to the ground and very humble.
What’s your favorite pastime?
I enjoy watching all types of comedy and I like each one of them.
Hello Psychaleppo (we love him too!) and Boshoco
Losing someone I’m not expecting to lose
Every new project I start.
