What does it mean to you to be part of Skribbl and support human-made art?

It’s such an honor to be part of a platform where human-made art are greatly appreciated and promoted.

Describe your illustration style in three words…

Life base, Detailed, Imaginative

How did you get started in illustration… What’s your story?

I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. From cartoon characters, to what I can pick up from my imaginations and eventually applied what I learn and experienced in life into my artworks.

How do you approach a new illustration?

What I usually do is I imagine/ draw it in my head before starting. In that way everything becomes easy. Sometimes emotion and new experiences can trigger an idea for a new artwork too.

What inspires you to create?

For me I think the feeling I get in the process and the excitement of how the artwork will turn out. It’s something that I look forward every time that inspires me to create more.

Give us a tip for generating creative ideas?

You have to go out, be with nature.

Tell us about your favourite illustration, or Skribbl topic to illustrate and why?

I don’t really have like a favorite but The beach inspired illustrations, because I’m a skimboarder and every time I’m at the beach it’s always a good time.

What’s the best piece of advice you can give to a budding illustrator, or someone just getting started?

Don’t be afraid to fail. Enjoy the process, make sure to get satisfaction in every illustration you do.

What does your workspace or studio say about you?

Definitely a mess. There’s a lot of unfinished drawings.

Who is your favourite artist or an artist who inspires you?

Sir Eldiardo Dela Peña, my High school teacher. He inspires and influences me in many ways. He was also the one who referred me here on Skribbl.

Draw yourself… Can be a doodle, abstract, whatever you want!
