Which creators are inspirations to you?
Lois van Baarle is one of my favorites, because of her style and colors. Neil Gaiman because he is an amazing storytelling.

What is your favorite part of drawing/coloring?
When you’re figuring out all the little problems along the way and seeing your work slowly come together. I also love to choose the color scheme, mixing the colors until I find the best combination.

Why comics?
I love this method of story telling, there are so many ways you can tell a story and with just a few key images you can have such a strong impact for a scene. It’s the perfect combination of visual art and storytelling.

Favorite comic of all time?
Sandman, but Bone is a close second.

Favorite comic movie of all time?
X-Men and 300

Worst comic movie?
Spiderman 3

Do you listen to music, watch a certain show or are you in silence when you draw/color?
I’ll either listen to music or rewatch my favorite shows on netflix.
