I thought it’d be too crass to promote our Kickstarter for MOULD MAP 3 on here, so I have posted this new Gelshot comic instead. It’s one of the comics I made in the process of doing my new 10 page comic for MOULD MAP 3 which has only 5 days left if you want to order it.
I’ve been wanting to do vehicle comics for a long time and finally I’m doing it!! I’m very pleased with myself!!!
I’m putting loads of scraps and research bits on my tumblr this week if anyone’s interested )

Now in stock on this website : Two books edited by Leon Sadler for the recent drawings exhibition at Tokyo’s WISH-LESS gallery ~
I CAN DO ANYTHING I WANT YOU TO has strips with the Replica Man support character from the out-of-print Bonehouse back catalogue.
JOHN’S WAR has collected Believer Mag spot illustrations and a comic produced for a French vending machine.
The show at WISH-LESS in Tokyo was drawings from the last couple of years. That will be the last time I show that work. The work left over is up at their website HERE, some of it is DNA Failure pages.

I’ve been working on this game for years, but haven’t been able to bring it completion so I made a kickstarter, I hope that visitors to the picturebox site will be able to have a quick look and see if they’re interested!
Following the logic and scientific ideas such as the food chain and evolution, let’s step into this drawing, have a walk around and see what there is to eat. Why are computer games so challenging?

1. Could you tell me a little about how you got into art / became an artist?
I was interested in art in my whole life, so it was never a question for me what I would choose as my profession. What is more I was attending a high school which was specialized in art, so it was pretty much evident.
2. Do you consider yourself first an artist or an illustrator?
I definitely identify myself as an artist, however the way I look at my work depends on the task required. If I get an order, I look at it as an illustrator, but if I work for myself I see it as a work of art.
Yes, I always have managed it like I said in my first answer.
4. How did you come to work in poster art?
Thanks to my works at university and my teachers’ recommendations I received most of my requests. Certainly I was interested in this type of art, so I was making poster arts with pleasure.
If you’re referring to influence, then I have to say that no one has influenced me; I never looked at anyone as my role model. Of course I look up to plenty of artists and their work, but knowingly my work has never been affected.
6. Had you seen any of the films you were illustrating for?
7. How much freedom were you given to interpret the films with your own visions?
Whole freedom, but of course the theme of the films was a great affect. However if the procurer wasn’t fully satisfied with the outcome, the artwork was rejected, but they never tried to tie me up through the working process.
8. Did your poster work stand out amongst your contemporaries?
I think yes. I was one of those artists whose work was all over the city through that period of time (in the 70s and 80s).
I’m always proudest at the latest one.
10. Anything you would like to add?
I made my posters with the same pretension as my paintings. It is important to add that my posters were created as paintings and the reproductions were made by those. This means, that I consider myself as a painter, like you asked in your second question.
