Where in your home/apartment is your studio located?
I have an entire room dedicated to my studio. It's at the back/street side of the apartment. It's too noisy to be anything else really.

What equipment/tools do you use?
Mac, Wacom tablet (digital pen & drawing pad), Epson printer, paint brushes, exacto knife, canvas & paper

Do you have an inspiration board, and can you tell us what is inspiring you now?
I have a binder full of cut outs from magazines that range from HOW and Graphic Design USA to Domino and Ready Made. I even cut pages from the in-flight magazines when I travel. My whole apartment is a giant inspiration board, but I must say that Traveling is my single greatest source of inspiration.
Pics of my apt & studio here.


How do you create best (e.g. do you listen to music while you create and if so what?)
I create best at the wee hours of the night (1 AM on) with a cup of tea at my side. This definitely involves music. Music is crucial for me! I can't get enough ambient music. ie. Sigur Rós, Múm, Chris Schlarb, The Album Leaf, etc.

List (3) of your favorite artists
Sorry, I have to list six.

Jen Garrido

Brian Barneclo

Tim Biskup
dark, yet colorful, whimsy


If yours isn't, what would be your perfect studio?
My perfect studio would be detached from my living space. It would be around 800 square feet in size and have plenty of windows, work benches, drying racks, a refrigerator and sofa for late nights. I love industrial architecture, so an old warehouse would be ideal.


Thank you DripStick!
