The korean magazine Digital Brush held recently an interview of mine along with some of my illustrations. The artcle was named Work or Art and it was in the issue n. 8.
[...Q: Are you more of a heavy producer(meaning you make a lot of work) or a careful producer(meaning you spend quite some time in one work)?
I spend a sufficient time on any work every time, so there’s a satisfying result no doubt. It’s more important to have a perfect finished project than many mediocre works. But as always, I have to stick to certain deadlines, which sometimes don’t allow for as much experimentation as I would like because time is not always enough. In a kind of way, I’ m trying to “develop skills” to produce works fast, but without compromising the overall quality and detail.
Q: How much time do you spend for your own work compared to client work?
Normally, a designer/illustrator spends more time on his/her own work but that doesn’t mean is an absolute rule. I like spending enough time, so the resulting image impress me in the way I want. I enjoy the process of building up my illustrations without having an obvious pressure for the commercial use of it. Unfortunately, if I’m extremely busy with client works, there’s no time for my personal projects...]
I will try to publish the whole interview in future posts.
