It’s a ‘bad’ habit I have never been able to shake loose. Not that I ever wanted to. Since I was a kid, I have always had a book in my hand while having my meal. A novel, comic book, manga, magazine. I don’t really remember how and why I got to so attached to …

Those commissions have challenged me to accomplish something otherwise I wouldn't have.
They insisted I use the little free time I had doing illustrations, letterings or designs instead of
catching up with my favorite TV series. Thus they've sharpened me as an illustrator/designer.
And I'm grateful.
