Why are you an Illustrator?
I primarily consider myself a story teller. The best way to tell stories is the audio-visual medium but since its a very costly and one of the most toilsome job, I prefer illustrating my ideas. Here I am an one man team with control in everything from lighting to body language and that is without any barrier. Thus, I illustrate.
Did you attend school for fine art or design?
Never. I am a self taught artist. I think art cannot be taught just like the 1st ever painters i. e. the cavemen. They did not learnt painting from anyone.
