There’s a lot of secrets you can learn through a little experience. One of the first lessons that I learned was how do you draw a tattoo of a certain kind with a particular design? With this, I’m still experimenting. I’m always searching for new ways of illustrating people in a different way. I think drawing pictures is really important, but you have to be able to see more than just the design.

I didn’t know what to do, and I wanted to be a superhero artist. In the beginning I just wanted to be a superhero. [Laughs.]
