“I’ve had a few silly career goals as a kid, but for the longest time I wanted to be an astrophysicist. I spent most of my time at school doing math, physics and chemistry with this in mind, until I started to struggle. I had some mental health issues at the time, and I realized that the realities of working in science didn’t interest me. I liked the ideas and the theories, but the practice not so much.”

“My models are set in an alternate version of Warhammer; it is still the Old World but it has evolved to match my own vision. I do not consider myself an Oldhammerer, as my aim is not to perfect old miniatures and their aesthetics but rather innovate them so that they can be at the same time surprising and familiar to those who share my knowledge and passion for the old lore.”

“The style I use on my projects depends on many things; if I am painting a fantasy model, I prefer to go with a cleaner/cartoonish style. Meanwhile, when painting sci-fi, I tend to go for a darker and more realistic style. I find it very important when painting to find a balance between not having too clean or too gritty a style. I tend to go with a 50/50 of each. For example, I like to make my metallics look dirty and worn down, while parts like the skin and clothes need to be cleaner.”

“Keep doing it, no matter how depressing, frustrating or sometimes even useless it might
sometimes seem. Scream, bite the walls, throw yourself onto the floor, then get up and go again. Make a decision: Do I want to follow or lead? When you have made up your mind, work your proverbial arse off – learn your trade, master your tools. There are no ‘instant whip solutions’, despite what you might have been told.”
