    Q&A

    What made you begin illustrating?

    When I was an elementary student, I learned oil painting. From there, I eventually moved to digital art, doing flash animations for cell phones and then larger portrait illustrations.

    What are you particular about in your art?

    I use various techniques, but I always strive for a feeling of transparency and to express "another world" in my work.

    How long does it take you to complete a work?

    It depends on the piece, but it can take as long as six months or as short as two weeks.

    When do you come up with your artistic ideas?

    I am pretty sensitive to sound, so I often draw inspiration from people's voices and music.
    I can see colors in my mind, and from there the world I'm trying to express slowly comes together.
