My interview with Skin Artists (from earlier this year - forgot to post this!)
Q: How did you get into art? What made you to become an artist?
A: It was the result of turning a hobby into something more. I had done various jobs which I, frankly, hated, so I thought it was about time that I did something that I enjoyed. I have always had a real need to create things, and if that is semi-naked women then so be it!
Q: Do you remember your first creations? Give me a little overview.
A: I have always sketched, the first art that I can remember creating was a commission to draw my school building, must have been about 9 at the time. Sitting in a little plastic chair on my own in a big empty playground for days on end. Not a lot has changed really, I’m still sitting around on my own, just drawing, though not in a playground (that would be weird).
Q: Do you have any influences that helped you in developing your own style?
A: ’m not sure that I really have a set style, I think that it changes and evolves depending on the project. My design background has influenced me, I am not desperate to fill my images with clutter. I appreciate space. Someone like the late Nick Dewar was definitely someone who I looked up to. His work was simple yet strong, He didn’t really do backgrounds either, sometimes the overall design has more power and impact without unnecessary distractions. The subject stands out more.
Q: Do you find art as addiction? Looking at your masterpieces today I would rather say that drawing was easy for you. How much time was necessary to get into this great level?
