What are your stylistic inspirations for your illustrations?
I get a lot of inspiration from music, skate graphics, tattoo culture, nature and weird excerpts from day to day life. I feel very fortunate to have lots of friends both local and online who are very talented artists and they're a great source of inspiration as well.
You recently did a collaboration with a fellow local brand, Hungry Ghost Press. How did that get started, and how was it working together?
Chris is awesome. I believe we started talking through Instagram a while back and sort of clicked. He's a super talented artist and a great person. I think we share a lot of aesthetics as far as art and how a small business should be done. I've been organizing market type events in the North Shore and he's had prior engagements and vice versa-- it'll be cool to finally be able to link up for one.
How has Beverly shaped your work?
Beverly has been huge for me as an artist. I went to school here and I've lived here for about 6-7 years now. I graduated from Montserrat College of Art back in '09 and a lot of friends and fellow artists also stuck around the area, so we've all kind of evolved and matured artistically together.
