Frequently Asked Questions

#What inspires you?

〉I feel inspired by everything related to dark/gothic topics, scary/horror stories, alternative outfits, nature, history, halloween, cities, coffee shops, art supplies, synthwave, metal music, etc.

#How did you find your own drawing style?

〉By practicing everyday, by finding inspiration in other artists/music/aesthetics/etc. You can get inspired by “X” artist, my suggestion is try not to copy them,but try to recreate what you like from that artist as your own, because if you just copy them, you will end up drawing the same,and it will be just a copy of that artist. It’s a long trip, you have to be very patient, if you really love what you do, sooner or later, you will get your own art style.

#What are your favorite things/topics to draw?

〉What I love the most is creating dark/mysterious/strong characters dressed in different and interesting outfits created by me. I’m always very inspired by gothic/punk/alternative styles. I love to give spooky/dark vibes to all my illustrations,and luckily makes you wonder what’s going on there,whats the story behind this work. I also enjoy a lot drawing fanarts of series/movies/cartoons.
