What type of tools or media do you use?
Mechanical pencils, felt tip pens, light box, copy paper, scanner, Photoshop, Flash, Adobe Illustrator

Where is the place you would like to work or be an Intern if you had a choice?
Well, at this point in my career I'd rather continue working from home and stay freelance. You can't beat the hours and the commute is a breeze. I worked for almost ten years at Sesame Street so I'm not in any hurry to get back to the daily grind but if I had to pick a place it might be Pixar because they seem to be just having a ball out there.


Who do you think are the top character designers out there?
Peter DeSéve, Bill Mayer, Glen Keane, Bruce Timm

What are some of your favorite character designs which you have seen?
I've always been a fan of Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth's Rat Fink and Basil Wolverton's sick and twisted people and I loved the design of Long John Silver from Disney's Treasure Planet. The character design was just awesome the way they combined a hand drawn 2-D character with a 3-D arm, leg and eye piece to make him into a cyborg was incredible.


What is your most favorite subject to draw? And why?
I love to draw anything organic. People, plants, animals, you name it. What I hate to draw are straight edged objects like a chair, a building a car or anything mechanical. I just don't enjoy it.

What inspired you to become an Artist?
Just a love of cartoons and comics as a kid. I loved John Buscema's Conan the Barbarian, Jim Unger's Herman, all the stuff in the Sunday Funnies like Beetle Bailey, Peanuts, Hagar, The Born Loser, I loved John Severin's work in Cracked magazine and Jack Davis in Mad. Saturday morning cartoons were big as well. The Wacky Races, the Krofft Super Show, the Flintstones, Inch High Private Eye all of it. I was and still am a cartoon junkie.
