An interview with illustrator Alan Gehri

Thanks Alan aka @alangehri for taking part in our illustrators’ interview series!

How long have you been drawing?

I started to seriously draw in March 2019, a few months later with china ink.

What’s your process?

First of all I never start to draw unless I have a clear idea of what I want to do, once I had an idea I simply developed it in pencil and immediately after the ink.

Digital vs traditional?

Traditional is more satisfying!

How long does it take to create it?

Generally it takes about 1/4 hours to complete a drawing, once I start I finish it, I never leave things in half.

Is it a hobby or your career?

For me it is a hobby in all respects, I don’t think I will make it a career in the future. we’ll see!

Why do you draw?

The only way to express feelings and be interpreted simply by looking.

What inspires you?

Whatever I see I feel or live in person!

What is the proudest moment that you have achieved?

Find out that there are people who really care what I do.

What is the biggest obstacle that you have faced?

I think it was finding a style that satisfied me, as well as managing my IG page.

You have one day to live, how do you spend it?

I think I will spend my time alone smoking on my balcony.
