Where are you ?

France

 

When did you first start drawing/designing seriously?

I worked as a “serious” artist from 2010 – 2013, I’d never do that again. I prefer art to be fun 😉

 

What  job did you have BEFORE you started drawing/designing for a living?

I was a software developer before I moved to France, and the last time I worked for a salary was on technical support for World of Warcraft, a video game.

 

If you could hang out with ANYONE in the world ….  who would it be?….and what is the one question you would want to ask them?

Danny Kaye. I never drew him, but I think his goofiness has inspired some of my characters.

 

If you weren’t doing what you are doing now…. what job would you have?

Software Developer. Although I’m a bit out of date these days. I do video game design on the side to keep my hand in.

 

What’s your favorite craftroom/business supply or tool that you couldn’t live without?

My mechanical pencil, if I don’t have at least 3 in the house at one time, I start to get nervous. I seem to have bought about 20 in the past year. I think my cats eat them.

 

If your parents had named you something else… what would you have picked?

Pollyanna. My mum wanted to name me that after the novel.

 

What’s the one song guaranteed to have you shaking your booty anytime, anyplace ..anywhere?

Bob Sinclar – Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now) – oh my. It has the “everybody dance now” sample from the 90s, which makes me forget I’m over 40. I’m going to kill myself one of these days or break something.

 

Who scared you most as a kid when you were being naughty.. your parents or the boogey man?

I was nearly never naughty, but when I was it was the “disappointed” face of my mother that scared me the most.

 

Show me the drawing you think most closely resembles you physically or personality-wise

Carmen

 

 

What do you love most about all the people you meet through your work?

Everyone that I have met so far have been so nice. I think the crafting community really look out for artists and are very supportive. I really like that, rather than creating a “finished” product that people consume, digis are more like collaborating with hundreds of very individual artists all over the world, and I love to see how everyone interprets one image in their own way.

 

If you were a classic car…. what would you be?

I don’t know if I’d be it, but I always wanted to own a Chevy Camaro 69 SS.

 

When you are working, what is the view from your window like?

I’m lucky to have a big garden with trees and birds that play in them. Our garden is a bit unkempt so it’s a bit like living in a forest sometimes.

 

Which decade do you think had the best music?

70s Disco.

 

What’s your favorite hobby when you want to relax?

Independant video games, board games, gardening, sci-fi films, audible books about space.

 

Which drawing/product are you the most proud of in your collection?

This one was quite difficult to get the balance right, and I was quite proud of myself for even attempting the pose 🙂
