“It is easy for young illustrators to get lost in the predominant trends of the moment as we all wish for people to like our work. Emulating these trends might seem like a shortcut, but it’s not. Focus on who you are and what you want to tell, then sketch it out.”
“Perfection bores me. That is the reason I sometimes take the pen with my right hand. Mistakes are essential: I don’t erase anything, because even mistakes have an essence of their own. I like to maintain a different outlook on things.”
“Edgy, provocative, raw.”
