How would you describe your work?
A friend recently said “It feels like something I know, but also not something I’ve seen”.
How would you describe your workshop?
It’s usually messy and a little cluttered but the windows are nice and big. I have two desks, one for getting messy and one for digital work. And there are lots of half baked drawings/ideas pinned everywhere.
What is a usual day in the workshop like for you?
It’s a constant juggling act of splitting my time between what needs to be done for my clients and what needs to be done for my own sanity.
Who has been your biggest influence?
I can’t really think of any one person. Tons of people along the way. If we’re talking about other artists it’s usually the people who manage to never have a real job and tip-toe the line between commercial and art.
What themes, inspirations or concepts drift into your work?
Music is always there, even if it’s just the rhythm of a pattern. I like adding characters because it’s a way to make something abstract relatable to anyone.
Do you have a motto?
“You’re doing fine.” - Tom Papa
Do you have any rules or rituals when working?
My biggest rule is to always make time for personal work.
How would you style your artist series Hiut jeans?
I’d let my wife dress me.
