Where are you ?
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?
Stephen Hawking. I’d probably ask him a stupid question and spend my life mortified that I had embarrased myself.
What’s your favorite color?
What is your favorite piece in the whole store?
Thank you for the Flowers
Who is your inspiration/muse?
Cartoons like Sponge Bob, Oggy and the cockroaches, Video Games.
Name your favorite cartoon?
At the moment I’m watching Adventure Time, that is pretty cool. I like everything by Miyasaki.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
What was your favorite subject in school…?
Maths. Funnily enough I didn’t like art at school, I found it restrictive and boring drawing pieces of wood and fruit.
If you were reincarnated…who would you have been in a former life?
What is your most popular item in the store/shop?
I don’t know how long the bunny will be popular now that spring is over, but I think a lot of people who visit my store will like coffee whatever the weather.
Who was your first celebrity crush…and have you drawn 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 Although I’m a bit out of date these days.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
This is me multitasking, I wear lots of hats 🙂
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?
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 🙂
What should be written on your gravestone when you die?
