Tell us a little bit about your work.
I feel that paper and pen allow me to translate and filter out things powerfully. Music is also a journal for me, but I can really show a part of me with drawing that can defend or embrace. I can't live without the process of making. Knowing who I am through art makes me strong.
How do you go about creating a piece?
I make sure I always have a pen and paper with me. Also having deadlines and exciting publications to make for always gets me cleaning off my desk and scrawling madly.
I clock up the megabytes on my laptop looking up all different kinds of images on flickr and google images. Benjamin Sea is my absolute muse. New music, films, books and also girls like Laura Park and Milano Chow.
Currently I serve people in a great store near where I live. And I scribble on blank receipts in my spare moments.
Tools of the trade?
Fine black biro, 70gsm paper in a spiral notebook, thin paint brush, adobe photoshop, watercolours.
A new comic book is in the works to soon be released. Also I'm trying to get my Etsy together with some 8x8 paintings. An exhibition at The Hive gallery in Los Angeles is in the works as well.
