1. When did you first start reading comics?
I have been around comics for as long as I can remember. My older brothers had huge comic book collections well before I could read so I always had plenty to look at.
2. What are your favorite comic books?
I have always been a big X-men and Spiderman fan. Black Sad is probably my favorite comic of all time though.
3. What tools of the trade do you use?
I work traditionally as much as I can. Ball point pen, red pencil, graphite and india ink with nibs are my bread and butter. I use water colour and acrylic for sketching in colour, but finish anything for print in Photoshop.
4. Any beginning artist tips?
Just draw. A lot.
5. What was the biggest professional influence on your work?
I can’t nail it down to one influencial source, but basicly: Disney, Pierre Alary, Juanjo Guarnido, Chris Sanders, Rodolphe Guenoden, Katsuhiro Otomo and Mark Schultz.
6. Any advice for a young artist that you wish someone had told you?
Don’t be too hard on your self, just keep drawing and enjoy yourself.
7. Why did you become a comic book artist?
I was working on my A levels taking Biology, Physics and Business Studies and hated it. I switched Physics to Art when I was 17 and havn’t looked back.
8. What inspires you most?
Sitting around a coffee shop watching people watching. I travel quite a lot and thats the first thing I do when I get to a new place.
9. Who is your favorite comic character to draw?
I pretty much never draw recurring characters, I just enjoy drawing people in general.
10. What have you done to get your work noticed?
As far as comic work goes I go to comic cons and speak to editors.

All day pretty much everyday.
