I don't know! I'm a pretty good ping pong player?
Probably because of my grampa! He used to draw on anything he could, he inspired me to start doodling and trying to make art myself.
I'm very inspired by trying new things that I know I'm not that great at. I like the challenge, and I feel like I learn a lot with every attempt. Other than that, there are too many artists that I'm inspired by. Check out my Instagram follows for some of my favourites!
A typical day is 8 hours of art directing at Giant Ant, helping create cool videos for really cool clients; then cooking with my wife; then drawing a bit more or going for a walk or watching a movie. But, since my wife is also an illustrator, we find ourselves starting new personal projects every other week.
I try to do something new, that I know I'm not that good at. Something like sculpture, photography... It's usually enough of a break to get me excited to paint again.
MTV, Costa del Mar Sunglasses, and CNN.
Usually just Photoshop and Illustrator. Sometimes I'll use Maya if I need a 3D reference.
These days, probably Instagram. It just seems to be where my favourite illustrators are most active.
Do a lot of personal projects. It's great to get you inspired and it creates a portfolio in exactly the kind of projects you want to be doing.
A huge collaboration with all of my favourite artists and animators. Probably a short film!
