My specialest skill is starting dance parties. What is your favourite card you’ve designed for Sunshine Llama, and why?

Sorry You’re Leafing, because I love the pun and drawing sad flowers.

Can you tell us a little bit more about your design process? What do you enjoy most about the design process?

I start with quick, intuitive pencil sketches and draw the same concept over and over loosely. Then I pull my best sketch into Procreate and draw my shapes from that to try and keep the initial energy of the drawing. I love the flexibility of working digitally and I play a lot with colour.

How did you get into illustration/design?

I always loved to draw and studied illustration at uni, though it took me years to develop the confidence to pursue illustration as a full time career. It was actually during a 10 day silent meditation retreat I did in Poland in 2018 that I really sat with the idea of letting visual art go, and once I envisioned my life without art I realized illustration is what I truly love. From there I went for it and never looked back.

Where do you find inspiration?

Everywhere, but lately I’ve been drawing a lot of figures in bendy poses and I think of how my own body feels when I do yoga and silly dance. 

Who is your favourite designer/artist/creative person?

I love and follow so many creative people. A few of them are artists Jeffrey Cheung, Robin Francesca Williams, Steph Ramplin, Egle Zvirblyte, and Nathaniel Russell. 

Do you have any top tips for aspiring designers?

Your weaknesses can become an intentional part of your style. I realized a few years ago that drawing in perspective kills my creativity (being  more worried about figure/ground relationship than feeling) so I did away with it and now draw exclusively in whacky, unrealistic perspective.

What is your favourite film?

My favourite series right now is The Midnight Gospel by Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell. The way the series waxes directly on heavy topics like death and love touches my soul. 

What is your star sign?

Aquarius sun, Leo moon, Libra Rising.
