I usually draw things in my mind and visualize, like day dreaming.
What kind of contests would you be really excited to see?
I love creating for certain topics with no boundaries, like that of the All Posters design contests. I love the ingenuity and the freedom I could imagine.
Tell us about your design style.
Honestly, that’s a very struggling question for an artist to answer. I’m still figuring out my style! I’m a jack of all trades but still a master of none.
I consider myself as a modern artisan and a greatly influenced by the millennial era so my works is 100% “digital”
Who are some of your favorite artists? Books?
Kinda boring but I mostly read self-help and entrepreneurial works. But I do love Chariot of the Gods by Erich Von Däniken.
What does it mean to be creative?
As a creative person, your mind wonders a lot and you are often not content in your thoughts because your mind continues to explore a wide array of inspiration. It’s confusing but creative people are very interesting!
Lastly, what advice do you have for other or creatives?
Search for something more and hope for something good.
