What inspired you to become an illustrator?

I can easily say that I was led by the idea of telling stories on my own way, through images.

What design software do you use?

Most of the time it is Photoshop/Illustrator with few plugins, combined with Wacom tablet.

What is your ideal work environment?

I think it works best with spacious desk, surrounded with my books and some o my favourite music in the background. I enjoy sharing the studio with friends as sometimes you can get stuck when you are alone too long in front of the screen.

Where does your design inspiration come from? 

I really enjoy exploring the content coming in from the usual, illustration-related, online feed.

But I also like to take the detour and to dig deeper in order to do the research on the image makers from various epochs.

Who is the person you admire most?

I'm not really sure if I can name one person - but Alexander Girrard, John Alcorn and Tom Eckersley are always shortlisted.
