What was your favorite book when you were a child?
Mitago Wood by Robert Holdstock
What’s your favorite line from a book?
“Sometimes it’s better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.” —Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms
Who are your top three favorite authors or illustrators?
Mike Mignola, who is a huge influence, Adam Hughes, and John Buscema, who teaches how to narrate with energy.
Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?
I want to live my life doing what I like most! That’s the main reason, of course. But also I take pride in being able to tell a story by drawings, and making others understand what is going on in the story I draw.
Do you have any advice for future authors or illustrators?
Keep an eye on reality, so you can learn how everything moves, weights, and behaves, and the other eye on your own ideas. No matter how fantastic they are, do not lose them. Also keep working on your skills. We all can be better at anything. And do not erase the lines that you made wrong, that way you know where to draw the right ones.
