Hey Tim Meakins. How are you?
Hi! Im very well, feeling healthy and strong. Had an apple this morning as well.
Congratulations on 'Always Alive' and thanks for gracing Bivs' walls with your artwork.
Thank you and thanks for having me!
So we know you're a talented and in-demand young designer and a great artist. Where did your connection to the arts start?
The connection started very early for me, I realise that now but at the time I never perceived it as something I wanted to do. I was always heavily into comics and wanted to draw superheroes but never had the natural talent or patience. When I started to study design it became very clear that I finally had the 'want' to create. I think all I needed was a platform and in this case was a computer, eventually it became an obsession and here we are today. It was not until very recently I started to paint the illustrations and with the help of people like Martin E Wills was able to create for an audience. Feels good.
What or who inspires you?
I honestly think anything and anyone really. I am heavily inspired on how people perceive items or objects. The components and intricacies that make up the item to help us conceive what that 'thing is'. Hopefully that makes sense haha. But really people, places, objects, how people act, emotions, food, anything.
If you were to describe your work in three words, what would they be?
Haha you already know whats its gonna be, its always cute, sometimes I'm unsure if cute is a good thing but thats just my thing I guess. Colourful, Cute and Playful.
