A: Graphically, my inspiration is the photography, old illustration, traditional tattoo, c-mic, music... Everything seem to be a great inspiration for sketching.

A: It is a necessity!

Q: You work on many different mediums such as digital art, print, graffiti, canvas... What is your favorite medium? In which one you find most creative freedom?
A: Yes, on graffiti, and my paintings or drawings on paper is my real style. I'm free for paint my style. No conditions. On tattoo or others works, I adapt to the client. I can rarely express the same.
