So how are things with you Chrysa? All good I hope?
ALL IS ON THE UP YES! I WAS AWAY FOR A FEW MONTHS TAKING MYSELF AS FAR AWAY FROM THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE AS POSSIBLE FOR THE WINTER, NOW BACK IN LONDON GETTING THE BALL ROLLING, ENJOYING THE (SLIGHT LACK OF) SUMMER AND GETTING THE FINE LINERS OUT AGAIN!

Tell me about this cover – how did this image appear in your head?
I WAS PARTAKING IN A LITTLE PROCRASTINATION WHILE STARING OUT THE WINDOW (AT A LONG LINE OF CHIMNEYS) AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE PERFECT. LONDON IS FULL OF THEM AND I’VE WANTED TO DRAW SOME FOR QUITE A WHILE SO KNEW IT WAS THE WAY FORWARD.

A lot of your other work features birds in it. Why birds so much?
I BECAME A LITTLE OBSESSED WITH THEM AFTER DRAWING THEM I THINK. I ENDED UP SPENDING QUITE A LOT OF TIME LOOKING THROUGH BIRD BOOKS, RESEARCHING BIRD STATISTICS, AND BUYING BIRD PARAPHERNALIA THAT I FELT I DIDN’T REALLY HAVE MUCH CHOICE!

What other things are you up to?
WORKING ON A COUPLE COMMISSIONS, BUILDING UP A BEAST PORTFOLIO, AND TRYING TO PAY THE RENT. IN THAT ORDER

Where can we see more of your work?
I’M CONTRIBUTING TO A FEW ILLUSTRATION MAGAZINES WHICH WILL BE OUT LATER IN THE YEAR SO KEEP AN EYE OUT. OR IF ITS PAYDAY HEAD DOWN TO LUNA AND CURIOUS OR THE PRINT-CLUB WHERE YOU CAN GET YOURSELF A FINE SCREEN-PRINTED POSTER OF MY BIRDS OR INSECTS. OR MY BLOG AND WEBSITE.
