Interview in VECTORTUTS+

My good friend and talented illustrator, Chris Leavens, was kind enough to interview me for an article about artistic style in vectortuts+ Magazine. The article features the work and viewpoints of some really talented illustrators, and is definitely worth a look. You can see it here.

Great interview/article! I can certainly see where some of your muses have sculpted your personal vision. Your illo's carry the same charm and whimsical quality of Eric Carle. So happy for you - congratulations again! ;)

It takes a lot to find your personal style. Sometimes you wonder if in fact you'll have someday one of your own, recognisable by your fans at first sight.
I would say I could recognize your work even outside of its usual context.
Congratulations
:-)

Congrats on the interview Eric! I know a Barclay when I see one! Oh, and this particular illustration is fab and reminds me so much of my own two cats - black one had been on walkabout and arrived home in torrential rain - ginger one oblivious to the fact!!

Great interview, Eric!
I read it a few days ago because it was passed on twitter by Jannie Ho and Jon Woodward! It would be nice to see you there too, there are quite a few illustrators and is a great way to share infos.
