Interview Time!

Last week I was contacted by Renderforest, a video production company who like to feature artists who inspire them on their blog, so I was pretty flattered to be part of it. They asked me some great and some quite unusual questions too (one was about the smell of my artwork..!)

Q: Do you consider yourself a creative person? Please explain your answer :) 
A: Of course! I come up with all the ideas for my illustrations (and create them too out as paper-cuts!) I think you need to be a creative person to be any kind of artist who creates work from scratch.

Q: Do you strive to be unique in your creative endeavors? What is your favorite part of making illustrations? 
A: I do, which is why I started making my illustrations into paper-cuts, rather than exclusively using Photoshop or Illustrator. I like the wonky edges, mistakes and textures you get with collage, which are more difficult to achieve on the computer. I love when I've got an idea and have started to cut the design out of bits of paper. It's quite relaxing really (until I drop a piece!)
Q: What is your favorite color? Does this color describe your as a person? Please explain.
A: Purple. I'm not sure but I guess purple is a little eccentric.
