Could you tell us about yourself?
I am a freelance illustrator and I am a happy person 🙂 I am very lucky because my hobby has become my job. In addition to stocks, I also paint commercial and book illustrations to order. My dog and cat help me to illustrate – I love animals very much and I think that it is quite noticeable in my works. I often paint at night – I’m a terrible owl. Audiobook absorber is my middle name and I live with the feeling that all the best is yet to come.
How long have you been in this industry?
I have been in this industry for about 3 – 4 years.
When did you know you wanted to pursue designing and start selling it?
Four years ago, I decided to combine my hobby with the ability to work remotely. It all started with the series “Desperate Housewives”. The character Susan Meyer, earned money by illustrating children’s books. I said: Wow! Yes, this is my dream job! ” And it all came tumbling out 🙂
P.S. But I never saw how Susan did it – her personal life was too stormy (hee-hee-hee)
What inspires you the most? Where do you get your inspiration?
I don’t need any special inspiration to start a new project – it comes in the process. I am sincerely glad that today I drew better than I did yesterday.
I love vintage, and what may seem like ordinary old stuff to many people, fascinates me. I love old houses. They are like huge repositories of data about those who lived in them before me. I have already mentioned that animals are part of my inspiration 😉
Some of the illustrators that I love with all my heart are – Beatrix Potter, Jill Barklem, Chris Dunn… Oh! There are actually a lot of them.
Are you a traditional or digital artist? What are your preferred mediums to create your designs and graphics?
I really like traditional ways of painting. I used to paint with watercolors and pencils. But all these jars, brushes, albums and others are very bound to the house, and I wanted to draw anytime and anywhere. Now I draw on a tablet but still try to stick to traditional digital techniques (paper texture, pencils, watercolor)
Could you describe your design style?
All the time I tried to improve my drawing style from simple to complex. In the end, I settled on creating digital watercolor illustrations with a touch of vintage.
What is your favorite part of the designing process?
I like to plan the beginning of the project, imagine and write down thoughts about future personages, their actions, character and more. When the linear sketch is ready, I like to do the first large brush strokes in the shape. And I also like to clarify the details at the last stages of work – how to add a cherry on the cake.
Have you ever experienced creative blocks before? How did you handle it?
Fortunately, I have not encountered this before.
Do you have any advice or tips for future graphic designers out there?
Don’t be chased by the idea of finding a style that will draw as much as possible and spend as little time as possible. You risk losing your personality and sometimes the most important thing is in the details. And details take time.
If there is something you wish The Hungry JPEG could do for you, tell us.
