 Do you have special places to find your inspirations?

I draw everywhere but I like to draw more and more outside. I like to travel, to visit cities with my ipad and I sketch streets, myself, small imaginary characters, objects, … It allows you to practice drawing differently from the office and it is very stimulating for creativity.

Your special tip for the art crew what to do with the art supplies in this Upcrate:

I don’t know if I am in the best position to give advice and I admit that this is the first time that I have tested a mystery box. I would say that you have to take the time to try all the material, test it on a paper, lay out the colors and let the inspiration come. The colors of this box are very cool, very lively, very pop. There is a lot of possibility with all your little artistic brains!

Which style do you like best and why? Do you always doodle?

I like art in general. Afterwards, there are things I like more like Franco-Belgian comics and the work of some freelance illustrators that I follow on Instagram. When I resumed drawing, after more than 15 years of stopping, I started with doodle art, a style that I like because it allows a lot of interesting and surreal graphic possibility. Over time, I draw less doodle and more scene or characters because I think about drawing a graphic novel.

What do you associate with Art Crew?

For a very long time I practice drawing alone. since i launched my instagram account, i have discovered the interest of a community of artists. An artcrew is the best way to advise, help each other, challenge yourself to progress, get inspired, … anything is possible. Looking back, I would have loved to have a creative environment when I started to draw, I will have a better level now!
