When did you first start drawing illustrations?




There are a lot of fashion elements in your illustrations ,  how does fashion relate to your art  ?

There is beauty in the designs of women’s clothing in all the eras such as  the style, color, indentation and dynamic. Women is simply, the beauty of life.



What are the inspirations behind your illustrations?

 My cat , fashion, photography & the things that I see .



Do you create other forms of art besides illustrations?

 Yes, I do collage mix typography , poster design , carte design , logo design etc.



What is a typical illustration process like for you?
What time of mediums do you use? (i.e watercolour, pen, colour pencils etc)

 Digital artwork , with sketch app . (manual with pen and then digital )



Do you  like to create illustration with computer software

 Yes , I do.



How long does it take for you to complete an illustration?

 Quoting Jay Montgomery :

“The length of time it takes to complete a commissioned illustration depends on several factors: the number of illustrations, the complexity of each, and the responsiveness of the clients approval. Even the most tightest of deadlines can be met in most cases. A typical job of one half-page magazine illustration will take 5-8 business days from the first call to the final delivery of illustration”.



Do other visual artists or even people influence your work?

 Yes of course.



Do you have any advice for young and ins­­­piring artists/illustrators?

 Achieve a spectacular work and become a legend.
