Which creators are inspirations to you?
I love the collaborations between Lee Bermejo and Brian Azzarello, Jeph Leob and Tim Sale, and pretty much anything by Alex Ross and Alan Moore.

What is your favorite part of drawing/coloring?
I like when everything starts coming together and it starts looking like an actual comic page. I like the collaborations between the artist and colorist to make a vision come alive.

Why comics?
It combines two things I love: storytelling and art.

Favorite comic of all time?
It would have to be Long Halloween, it was one of the first comics that made me want to devote my life to this art form.

Favorite comic movie of all time?
The Dark Knight

Worst of all time?
Those Fantastic Four movies.

Do you listen to music, watch a certain show or are you in silence when you draw?
I usually just put on Netflix, mainly for the white noise and occasion laugh. I listen to music, as well. I don’t really like silence as I work.
