It starts with a single feeling or emotion that I want to convey and put out there. I typically envision what a character’s or an object’s surrounding them would look like by building a world around the subject. Similar to a movie-still, I like to add little details (type of accessories worn, their furniture taste, etc.) which helps to add additional texture and context to the subject and that world. I want people to imagine themselves as part of the fantasy and experiencing a vastly different environment.
I also look at different types of references. Whether it’s retro interior designs, street fashion, nostalgic products from the past, even music - it all inspires me to create art which viewers can relate and treasure!
