What were you like at school?

Smaller.  But I was always drawing and playing music at every opportunity.  That hasn’t changed.

What advice would you give a student entering into the field of Iluustration?

The Four Ps…

PASSION: you have to love what you do.

PERSPIRATION: you must be prepared to work hard to turn your ideas into reality.

PERSISTENCE: never give up—you will strike disappointments—keep going regardless.

PROVENANCE:  sometimes you just need to be in the right place at the right time---be aware of these times and capitalize on them—luck is part of the equation!
