How long have you been drawing for? 20 years
Did you have any formal training (art classes, university, etc…) or are you a self taught artist? I want to Grant MacEwan's design program and took a few life drawing classes but I mostly taught myself.
Where do you draw inspiration from for your art? Comic book artists like Sam Kieth and Sam Watterson got me started in examining form and exaggeration.
How would you describe your art style? Simplified, exaggerated under detailed.
Do you have a favorite drawing? How about a favorite thing to draw? I don't have a favorite drawing but like love drawing teeth for some reason.
What is your take on digital drawing/painting/etc compared to pen & paper/paintbrush & canvas? I think about that a lot and I don't think you have to choose between digital or traditional drawing, but finding the right combination of the two.
Do you have plans to set up at any cons/festivals this year? Not at the moment.
Any new upcoming projects you’re working on? I'm producing a TV show where we take the audio of people telling stories then dramatize them using puppets.
How do you find is the best way for an aspiring artist to gain recognition and exposure? Creating a solid website is good, but reaching out though social media always helps.
Make sure to head over to facebook and check out more of Simon's artwork and felt up there.
