What’s your favourite spot for drawing?
To draw, I like being alone in my own space. I especially like working at home –there is a tiny room that gets natural light all day, it is somewhere I can concentrate on drawing and work without any disturbances. Personally, I find working at home is the way to be efficient and flexible. It lets me manage my time effectively, both in terms of my professional work and my daily life. It allows me to start as early as I want, to have a break when I want, perhaps take a nap or workout and then get back to drawing again at night. However, I like to have quite a strict schedule and be fairly disciplined throughout the working day.
What’s the most recent photo you’ve taken with your phone?
It was a closeup shot of a fern in the evening sunshine near my home. The picture showed off all the veins and textures. It was just beautiful and I wanted to keep that moment.
Where do you go for inspiration?
I gain inspiration almost anywhere – travelling, meeting people, listening to their stories. More specifically, being in nature gives me time to think, to be immersed, and to see everything more clearly. I get a lot of my ideas while trekking in the forest, across hills and so on. In my process, music also really helps me to see the overall image when I start drawing. If I'm a bit stuck, surfing on Flickr is also a great way to view the world from different perspectives.
