The main question I get asked is: What inspires your work? I tell them that the work you see on my site is either commissioned illustration work that is done to a brief, or my work can be self-promotional, done to attract new clients. The subject matters are what people are most interested in and it’s usually the work I do for self-promotion that allows me the freedom to create whatever is on my mind. Usually the subject matter is something political or based on society, only because there are rich pickings in these fields and they lend themselves well to satire. I don’t want to typecast my style and just do this kind of work, so I try do vary my work and not just pigeon hole myself to political concepts. Sometimes I like doing heartwarming work that makes you smile. Fundamentally, I just want to make you think.
