You’ll feel either slightly or very inspired.

What kind of subjects interest you the most?

Travel, culture, pop culture, environment, islam, and creativity.

How does where you live affect your project?

The stories are originally based on my experience when I lived in London, that’s pretty much the whole point of this project. As I love exploring, comparing, and pondering things, some things become quite interesting to tell.

When are you at your most creative?

I don’t really have a specific time of day. But usually, I become triggered after enjoying something, for example, great movies, travelling, unique experience, meeting some interesting people.

Where do you most feel at home?

Living room, with a vast area, natural lights, and where all conversations are happening. And I can sleep there too.  

What makes your work unique and truly your own?

Probably because it is based on personal experience. Many people have lived abroad, but not all people have chances to tell their stories. And each experience is perceived differently by each person.

Tell us a little about your creative process!

Find inspiration from daily life situations and popular issues. Then, I make rough sketches, manual and digital. Sometimes only digital. And then, finish the artworks.

What do you wish you knew about being an artist before you got started?

I just jumped into this things without many expectations, so I don’t really wish anything about it. Just do it. oops, nike.

What’s your plan in next 7 years? 

Produce several books, visiting another 7 countries, hopefully. May be to try living in a new place. 7 years sounds really far away. 
What other budding artists do you love?
I love comics by @yesimhotinthis, @tikatoons, and @si_bedil

What do you enjoy doing when not creating art?

Watch movies, reading books, swimming, travelling.
