What would you most like your audience to take away from your doodles?
A sense of excitement that you can creatively think your way out of (or into) any sort of trouble you like.
What is your process when doodling, is there any planning?
I think about what I want to draw, how it might look or more likely, how it might feel. I draw. I keep drawing, starting a new page when I'm bored / done / happy / horrified with the last drawing I made. I end up with a bunch of drawings I can select the best bits from, depending on what it is I'm doing.
Is that your real name?
No really, it is! My parents thought it'd be a laugh to call me Jon, what jokers eh? You can only imagine the playground chants I endured.
Do you have any advice on doodling?
Doodling is a hard master if you want to take it seriously, it's a piece of pie if you just want to mess around though. Always sharpen your pencils and keep your desk tidy. Carrying a sketchbook with you at all times is useful, though you have to remember to draw in it once in a while.
Which artists do you like?
During your time studying at art college did you have the same style as you do now?
When you drawing on the wall what is the drawing material you use?
Do you plan out your composition before drawing on the wall?
What advice would you give to get your illustrations into the market?
How do you start your character and illustrations?
How would you characterise your work?
What type of markers, paints, pens, etc. you use when colouring your work?
Who, what, where and when do you get your inspirations from Mr Burgerman?
How did you get started?
Do you use a graphic tablet to create your digital work?
Do you use a graphic tablet to create your digital work?
Did you teach yourself to draw, is there a system of abstraction or is it a natural style?
Do you have a certain philosophy on design/life in general?
What do you do to get out of a creative block?
What material do you most like to work on?
Do the same characters appear in different pieces of work?
How do you want people to feel when they see your work?
What is your favourite food?
Are you inspired by your surroundings? If yes, how?
What would your advice be for students currently studying within creative courses like for example?
A lot of your work mixes both analogue and digital techniques. Why do you choose to work this way?
What are your tips for using POSCA pens?
Only shake them with the lids on.
Dab them and hold down on some scrap cardboard to get the ink coming through the nib.
Don't press them too hard into the wall or you might make them leak.
If your bullet tip gets worn down, get a tissue, pull out the nib and flip it over.
The pens are re-fillable (with your own ink) and you can buy new nibs for them, so hang on to the empties.
They last a long time so if you think it's run out repeat tips 1 and 2 a few times first to make sure.
Don't drink the ink.
Have you ever refused to do a job and why?
not interested in it
against the product in question
not enough time
not enough money
knew I wouldn't actually be good at that job so turned it down
Do companies let you be free with what you produce for them?
What's the weirdest thing you have ever doodled on?
A persons passport. I suggested they might prefer me to draw on something else but they were insistent.
