How did your illustration career start?
Not sure it’s a career yet – fingers crossed though! ! I’ve just started this year focussing on my illustration after 9 years in branding as a designer. I would work on the weekday evenings and weekends… I finally decided it needed full attention.
Do you remember your first professional illustration?
I think it was working as a junior designer at Interbrand London. They were working with Barclays and needed some illustrative banners for a new Piccadilly circus branch.
Is there any illustration or project that you have a special affection for?
Any of the Shop magazine projects. It was always my dream to work with them as a student.
Your own style, was it hard for you to reach it?
Still getting there! ! My priority was always the idea, as I believe a good idea is timeless and unaffected by changes in style trends. I try to make it accessible and fun… and I have always personally loved working with obscene levels of gradients!

To The Next Artist I Ask Him: At What Point Did You Know That You Should Never Leave This Profession?
The first time I sat in a coffee shop to sketch up some ideas because I felt like a change of scenery… (I’m hoping to make that a coffee shop by the beach in Australia one day!)
Finally, what would you ask to the next artist to goes through our Moon’s Interview?
