Q & A
What do you regard as the highest point of creative fulfillment?
When the illustration and other parts of a project compliment one another and shed new light rather than simply repeat one another.
What is your favorite music to listen to while working?
I enjoy a wide range of music while working, but mostly Pat Metheny Group, Allan Holdsworth, Andy Summers and Miles Davis. I prefer instrumental music rather than songs.
Other than Illustration, what was your other favorite job?
During my high school and college years I worked for a company that designed, built and installed pipe organs. It was very gratifying to hear those magnificent instruments blasting their unique sound down the nave of a church after months of hard work and planning. Or better yet, to be ?standing inside the organ chamber while someone is ripping through?Bach’s “Passacaglia.”
What natural gift would you like to possess?
Alas, I can’t play a lick ... that is a natural gift I would like to possess.
