5 & 3/4 Questions
1. Describe yourself and your work.
I am a cosmic creative shape-shifting hobo from the northeast of Scotland obsessed with character design and tribal sci-fi art.
2. How did you get started?
I started making marks as soon as I could hold a pencil and never really stopped! My current Cosmic Nuggets version started in 2008, when I began to get sick of computers and wanted to make a series of alien characters drawn on paper—still going with this although coming up to my ten-year anniversary and getting itchy feet.
3. What piece of work best represents you and why?
Tough! If I had to choose one piece of work to best represent what I’ve been doing, it would have to be one of my “warriors” [three are shown below]—they give me the most enjoyment and satisfaction.
4. What are you into currently?
Right now I’m into cats and mice and formulating my debut coloring book/zine.
5. What are three things you’ve learned that young creatives should know?
Ooft. Find your own style, develop said style, and never give up on your dreams!! And bonus—draw/share as much as you can, and don’t be scared to make mistakes.
