For as long as I can remember, I have always loved to draw and create. As a child I was always scribbling away creating scenes of monsters, warriors, wizards and whatever gross slimy things I could summon from my imagination. So not much has changed really.
When I wasn't drawing, I was constructing some elaborate contraption out of a huge pile of Lego. Never content with the design that came with the instructions, I would immediately dismantle it, add the bricks to the rest of my collection and then build something brand new using all of the pieces available.
This love of creating things in 3D and my obsession with video games would later lead me into the video games industry, which I worked in for over 8 years. It was an obvious path for me, combining two of my favourite things, video games and art. There is something quite magical about watching something you created come to life on screen, running about, jumping over pits of lava and doing all manner of spectacular things as you madly push the buttons.
I have never really been too concerned about capturing realism or creating highbrow thought provoking art. Instead I try and tap into the ethereal, my subconcience and use my imagination to guide my hand. That being said, music, pop culture, skateboarding and of course videogames have always been a big influence on me. I find music to be an amazing source of inspiration and motivation. It's not very often that I will be holding a pencil or stylus in my hand, without some tunes blaring away in my eardrums, leading me down an unexpected path.
Juxtaposition is something I use a lot in my work, be it retina burning colour combinations or a tangled mixture of beauty and beastly. I find it a lot of fun to have a range of different elements contrasting each other and vying for your eye's attention.
In the end, that's what art is all about for me. Fun.
