Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Miami, Fl but my parents are from different parts of Haiti.
Where have you been to school?
Well I was at Atlanta College of Art the last year it existed and then I came to SCAD in 06.
What attracted you to Illustration?
I’ve always been an Illustrator at heart. I was always interested in drawing when I was younger because my older brothers drew around me a lot. Once I got into college I knew that I would get into Illustration because of my drawing style.
Who are your biggest influences?
If you weren’t studying illustration at SCAD, what would you likely be doing?
Illustrating is my life but um, I would probably be studying sound engineering somewhere. I love hearing unique sounds in music and trying to create them.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love working on music. When I’m not drawing or painting I’m normally messing around with garageband and making tracks. I actually just got a midi keyboard so I’ve been working on composing my own music and writing songs. I’ve been recording music since high school though.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I’m really shy.
What would your dream job/client be and why?
My dream job would be to work on a movie with an amazing team of artists and create the soundtrack for it.
What’s your typical process for creating your artwork?
First I sketch out the image I’m creating in pencil. Next, I spray fix it and then I paint. I like to use acrylics but sometimes if I’m being really experimental I’ll use tissue paper, house paint and spray paint.
Sum up your personal philosophy in 25 words or less.
Never stop creating. The more you create the better you get at it.
