Welcome to “Artist Spotlight”, our regular feature where you get to know the artists we work with.
1) Talk us through your process for creating Princess Mononoke.
I’m always looking for a concept that mixes two images, shapes, characters to create one and the same visual. I start by sketching (by hand on paper) and then attack my artwork on Illustrator, as I work purely in vector. I also like to keep a pretty small range of colors for my posters.
2) How old were you when you started illustrating and what did you create?
I think I’ve been drawing since I was a child. I loved reproducing the illustrations that were found in the Strange comic books I collected. Particularly Spider-Man.
3) What is the coolest thing a fan has done for you?
These fans were Teddy Sears and Grant Gustin, both from the CW “The Flash” TV Show. They wanted a copy of the poster I designed as fan art and they sent me back one signed which is framed now.
4) What are your top three movies?
The Back to the Future trilogy.
