Interview with illustrator Snow

Thanks Snow @snowbayles for taking part in our illustrators’ interview series!

How long have you been drawing?

I have been drawing since I can hold a pencil in my hand.

What’s your process?

I don’t have a process.  I draw when I want to.  I stop when I no longer want to.  It’s by doing this that no project has really displeased me.  Because I do it when I know I like it.

Digital vs traditional?

Traditional.  Simply because nothing will ever replace the senses associated with traditional art.  Even if I love digital for a lot of things.  I always have paper and a pencil with me.  Even to take notes.

How long does it take to create it?

All the illustrations that you can see on my insta are generally done between 30min and 1h.  Less for very simple designs and several hundred or even thousands of hours for the biggest projects I have had.

Is it a hobby or your career?

Both but drawing is not my only one career.

Why do you draw ?

Because I love it.  What other reasons would it be ?

What inspires you?

Absolutely everything on our planet.

What is the proudest moment that you have achieved?

This isn’t really just a moment but what I’m most proud of is that I’ve never given up on anything that is really close to my heart.  But in the end it’s not really about pride I think because it’s still not finished for me.  When I could tell everyone “I told you so”, at that time I would be proud of what I have achieved so far.

What is the biggest obstacle that you have faced?

The answer is simple although the obstacle is difficult.  No roof to sleep in, no friends to call for help, no family because I’m too stubborn, not a single cent on my account, no phone, no internet, nothing.  And continue to be happy every day with that.  It was the biggest obstacle of my life but overcoming it brought me 10 years of wisdom about life in general.

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

If I had a day to live I would spend it like other days.

How can people get in contact with you?
