    Q&A

    What made you get into illustrating?

    Ever since I was a kid, I liked drawing and I was always looking at paper. I began contributing to illustration sites and illustration magazines after having the thought that I wanted to connect people through illustrations.

    What do you fixate on in your work?

    I bear in mind creating drawings through which the world and atmosphere can be felt. Moving forward, I want to focus on my use of color.

    How long does your work take to create?

    For small illustrations, 1 day. For those larger than A4 that I paint, 1 week to as long as about 1 month.

    When do you come up with ideas for your work?

    I am struck with unexpected ideas momentarily when doing nothing, as well as when I start with a single word and expand the image of it.
