CI: What got you interested in digital art and what do you like most about it?
SC: I have always loved drawing since I was able to pick up a pencil. I stumbled across digital art when I was around 15 and started using the internet. I love howÂ versatile and efficient digital art can be, you can literally create anything you want with a computer. Ctrl-Z is also my best friend haha!
CI: What medium or style do you most prefer and why?Â
SC: Digital painting and 3D would be my two main mediums I work with.
CI: Can you go into detail about where you find inspiration for most of your work?
SC: My main inspiration and the reason I chose art as my career is because of Miyazaki’s Ghibli Films. I grew up with these animations, along with animations by Disney and Pixar so they really inspire me to tell my own stories.
CI:Â What themes do you like to explore in your art?
SC:Â Most of my pieces derives from children’s imaginations and even stories and characters I created when I was a child. There’s something really wonderful about the endless creativity that comes from within an innocent child.
So far, what has been your most memorable piece to work on and why?
SC: My most memorable piece so far is the Little Fairy and Snail animation I created while I was studying at Enmore Design. I pushed myself really hard to achieved goals I never though I would. From then, I was exposed to many greatÂ opportunitiesÂ to the industry and I am now working my dream job as a 3D artist.
Another memorable one was a comic anthology I collaborated with 11 other amazing Australian artists. Fly The Colour FantasticaÂ was the name of the project and we funded the book through Kickstarter which resulted in an overwhelming response from the public. It was an amazing experience and it was really great to tell my story along with other artists.
