Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?


 I never work with the intention to create pretty pictures in al classic way, that would bore me. I am more inspired by the individuality of a persons face or an unique style. Mostby my pictures emanate a certain morbidity and melancholy, usually compled with a portion of humor.
It´s a great luck when pople find themselfs in my pictures or think a personal story with it. It´s just not about drawing pretty pictures, further more I try to make people think in a different way.



Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?


I love sitting in the park to watch the skateboarder driving. I myselfe haven´t tryed it yet, maybe the time have come.


Who is your favorite artist, living or dead? 


I admire Frida Kahlo and her works. Her pictures are full of emotionality, additional I admire her courage.


When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?


That´s a pretty difficult question. When the job is at the same time the hobby you are searching for inspiration all the time, so you never really stop working.
To come down I usually go jogging in the woods, where everything is peaceful and quiet.
Apart from that I travel a lot or met my friends at the regular haunt.
I also enjoy to watching criminal or historie documentations.


Who are your biggest influences?


As a rule I work by emotion and spontanious, in particular while working on free works.
Mostby I get my inspiration out of myself, things I deal with in the inner or during the day.
A great influence are my friends, when I struggle and nothing works I talk to them just to hear a diffenent oppinion and open my mind.


What mediums do you enjoy working in?


Mechanical pencils, click erasers, technical pens such as Micron and Copic Multiliners.
