Duration: I've been illustrating professionally since 2009.
Staff: Just me.
Education: BFA from OCADU in Toronto, Canada.
Cultural Influences: Comics, nature documentaries, wool hats, movies (How To Get Ahead in Advertising), sustainable design, Bernese Mountain Dogs, biomimicry and hand-rendered typography. I’m mostly inspired by the seriously talented illustrators, artists and designers I discover on a daily basis.
Environment: My home studio is where I get most of my work done. I try to surround myself with as much visual stimuli as possible: mountains of books, magazines, art prints, toys and plants.
Philosophy: Learn and grow.
