The sketchbook is very important in my day-to-day illustration practice, and tends to contain
myobservational drawings from wherever I happen to be based in at the time. It is thus an
ever-changing reflection of my surroundings, approached with a touch of mischievousness and love
for humanity.

I usually take drawing notes on location; when that is not possible, I take photos for future references or make mental notes on the mood that I want to capture.



Keeping active in documenting my thoughts and observations is crucial, because it is a chance to let go of expectations and to not feel too precious or attached to the images produced.

Whether keeping a sketchbook, or simply allowing myself time to explore and make mistakes in my drawing and image-making on loose paper, I strongly believe that these explorations have the power to convey my personality as an illustrator.
