“For as long as I can remember I have been drawing or making something. Mostly, I drew comic book characters with hand-styled lettering. About six months ago, my mom mailed me a package that included a collection of drawings from when I was 11 or 12. I remember one of these creations vividly. It was a pencil drawing of Batman standing on a ledge. I was 11 years-old and home sick from school. The moment I sat my pencil down that day I remember feeling better because I knew I had created a great picture. I’m motivated by the work or others. Not just other artists, but writers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and musicians. It could be a slice of cinema, a painting from a book, or a tightly designed graphic from a surf mag that’ll inspire me. I think that’s what i find so brilliant about living today – inspiration is everywhere.”
