Tell us about your illustration. Why did you choose the phrase ‘Not All Who Wander Are Lost?’ I always remember the J.R.R. Tolkien poem, especially the part in Lord of the Rings when Gandalf describes Strider and Aragorn to Frodo in a letter. I’ve always loved that piece; it’s very timeless and magical. It conjures up so many images of adventure and journeying in my mind’s eye.
Can you give a piece of advice to an aspiring illustrator? One of my teachers at Art Center, Steve Turk, told my class “when in doubt, go to nature”. That’s always stayed with me. Even now, I go outside and take in the world around me when I need inspiration or just don’t feel like working. So much of my pattern and color palette comes from learning about some of the weird flora and fauna that exist out there. Nature is definitely a strong theme in my art.
Who are three of your favorite illustrators right now? There are too many to name, argh!! I’ll just pick a random three people then: Micah Lidberg, Sophia Foster-Dimino, and Dadu Shin.
