‘I take inspiration from everything around me, art books, literature, photography and sometimes from the unlikeliest things, some are so unlikely it seems ridiculous to even say them out loud! I also often go to the Central St Martins library and just browse through books of all kinds.
In my editorial work I have to engage with a lot of complicated issues some very positive and uplifting and some not so much. I try to come up with a conceptually strong yet balanced solution to each brief. It’s fun, like a new puzzle to solve each time and it is quite fast paced so it’s a great training ground for your mind.’
‘In my personal work I like drawing things which are slightly more wacky and surreal, but there is definitely a constant interchange of ideas and techniques between that and my commissioned work. One thing that has changed in the past year is that I have become a lot more patient. Often I would let a piece sit for a few months before I print or publish it just to see how I feel about it. It’s a completely different pace of working. There is more time to explore tangents and be really self indulgent.’
