“I wanted to be an illustrator since I was a kid. Drawings in books and comics were my favorite toys then. When I saw a poster by artist Drew Struzan in the 80s, I thought, “This is what I want to do.”
“When I studied art, I realized that illustrations are a very interesting communication tool, especially if you work in the media, you can get quite a large audience.”
