What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

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

 

Rodney Mullen for sure. I have been a huge fan of the skateboarding culture since i was a teenager. Tried skateboarding myself but lack the skills so i focus on the graphics. I have a huge amount of respect for anyone that can skate.

I don't really have a favorite artist as there are so many that are amazing and inspire me everyday. I do love the work of Sean Cliver, Jim Phillips and Jeremy Klein.

Working with the best team at Fox Body Art, Melbourne and hanging out with family and friends.

 All the tattooists i work with or had the pleasure of working with.  In my recent work Art Deco Architecture has been a huge influence.
