My name is Faye Moorhouse, I am an illustrator and I draw, paint and make weird looking things.
What inspired you to become an illustrator?
I’ve always liked to draw and make things, but I think I realised during my a-levels, we had really good art tutors at college and I remember making a little illustrated book/zine thing which was a bit shit but so fun and satisfying to make.
What design software do you use?
I draw and paint stuff with actual paints and pencils and then I scan in and play around with them in Photoshop. I’ve recently started making a few purely digital things done on my Wacom, but I’m still not sure how I feel about them.
What is your ideal work environment?
I’ve recently moved into a shared studio space, I used to work from home which was really lonely and I love now being able to feel like I’m going out to work and not having to look at my work things in the evening. But, I think my ideal setup would be my own studio in a shared building, I like seeing other people but sometimes I find it hard to draw and paint when other people are around.

Where does your design inspiration come from?
I’m really inspired by watching documentaries and seeing funny-looking people in the street.
