How would you describe your style? Are there any artists / designers that you particularly look up to?
I seem to really like poppy, colorful paintings with a dark edge/meaning to them. But not always! I feel that I'm just beginning to find a direction for myself as an artist. I've always loved Esao Andrew's work and attention to detail.
What do you feel makes your work unique and truly your own?
I strive to create artwork that is usable and/or wearable. After painting custom Vans full time for about 8 years, I started custom painting guitars. Painting canvases just hasn't been a part of my agenda.. yet, at least.
When do you feel the most creative?
My routine of waking up in the morning, get a fresh pot of joe brewing, a nice big breakfast, then getting to work, makes me feel super motivated. Which I realize isn't very special.. but for me, it's as simple as an awesome breakfast with Dunkin Donuts coffee.
What sort of things inspire you? Where do you look for inspiration?
I have some really talented friends that are going to school for art. I love seeing their work and picking their brain for advice. Seeing what my friends can do and hearing what they have to say about my work is inspiring to me.
