Q

How did you get interested in creating? What were your early influences?

My first influence would have to be my grandfather who was a general and a poet.. Then it would be when I first saw Sleeping Beauty, and how amazingly beautiful it was... it all went downhill from there..

Q

How do you see the digitalization of art? Apart from convenience, which important feature does technology add to your artwork? Which are your favorite technologies to use for work?

When digital became the norm, I realized digital art just isn't anything precious, though many people have tried. But it does highlight one's abilities and talents.. And it certainly makes things go faster.. that being said, I pretty much swear by Adobe and Procreate.

Q

Can you discuss the different styles and techniques that help you create a compelling project?

I find something that excites me and follow it... So if I like something interesting, I try to analyze how they did it and try to make something of my own. It just adds to the learning process, whether I utilize it in my work or no...

Q

What’s it like being a Creative in the US, in terms of the work, influences, treatment, etc?

Being an American is great because we get paid well.. being an American is challenging because we're expensive. Americans in general have worker protections and rights and access to a lot of information, so i'm lucky to be an American. I do wish I could work in other countries, though.

Q

How do you think quality, storytelling, and great teamwork come together on a project?
