Where did you train?
I studied Illustration at NMIT in Melbourne.
What's your favourite tool?
It sounds boring, but it's a H pencil.
What techniques do you use most?
I usually create a very detailed, fine pencil drawing, which I then scan into Photoshop and colour digitally. I love how soft and precise I can be with pencil, but I'm also very indecisive, so I like the flexibility Photoshop gives me when playing with colours. Although I can sometimes find it very difficult to commit to colour choices, which is where a deadline can come in handy.
