-What inspires you? I’m inspired by my children, sometimes I’ll overhear conversations between them and think, “Wow, that would be cool to draw.”
-What’s the best thing about what you do?
I love being able to bring my characters to life by making them into plushies.
-Have you ever had any strange requests for your art?
I love custom requests. I had an actual Luchador (masked wrestler) ask for a custom plushie that looked like him.
