What’s your background?

I am self taught in the realm of art


What do you look for in a reference photo on sktchy?

Photos with high contrast


What’s your medium of choice when you’re creating art?

Pen, pencil or iPad


What’s one quirk in your creative process?

I like using cheap materials – the cheaper, the better. Fancy things don’t make for better drawings. The exception to this is the use of my iPad and  Pencil.


Any words of advice for fellow artists?

Don’t sweat the resemblance. That’s the beauty of Sktchy – use it as a tool to get better and focus on rendering light and volume.
