Describe your own style.
Other than a piece of art, what else do you get out of working with illustrations?
New knowledge. I also meet a lot of lovely, inspiring people thanks to art and illustration.
What other illustrators do you like, and why?
Piet Parra! I really love his bold style and limited palette, which also includes all of my favourite colours. I’m also a big fan of Kristian Hammerstad, his illustrations are always on spot. I just started reading ‘Trigrammaton’, it's great!
What is your tools of choice?
Posca pens and Adobe Illustrator.
My gaze rests upon portraits in which the subjects appear to have been sunk into bath tubs filled with colourful water. With this style, only the strongest characteristics of a person remain, in vivid zones of colours.
