HELLO, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF:
Hi I'm Debi, I'm an artist from Melbourne, Australia.
IF YOU COULD GIVE YOUR 10 YEARS YOUNGER SELF ONE KEY PIECE OF ADVICE OR AN INSIGHT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Be braver and strive harder, you've got nothing to lose and so much to gain!
WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK OR IN A DESIGN RUT, HOW DO YOU GET YOURSELF OUT OF IT AND BACK ON TRACK?
I search for inspiration in shops and online places like Pinterest. This always gets my creative juices flowing again.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN TOOLS?
Coloured pencils and inks. I love blending my coloured pencils and highlighting with inks.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DESIGN PROCESS? FAVOURITE APPS AND PROGRAMS
I research online or wherever it takes me and then sketch out ideas and when I'm finally happy I work directly on paper.
I use a few colour correcting apps on the final piece.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN PROJECTS TO DATE?
I have had lots of fun in an online class for Make Art That Sells. Here are three of my favourite pieces.
WHO ARE YOUR DREAM CLIENTS OR WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT?
I'd love to design for Land of Nod or Oopsy Daisy.
THERE HAS BEEN AN ART SUPPLY SANCTION IMPOSED AND DESIGNERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO POSSESS 3 ITEMS/TOOLS, WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE?
Coloured pencils and paper and I'm set :)
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?
I find inspiration everywhere, from window shopping to my children's toys.
WHO WOULD YOU SAY THE GREATEST DESIGNER IS?
I don't have a favourite as there are so many great designers.
I hope people remember me for my colourful drawings that made people smile.
