What is more important to you, the sense of feel or the sense of sight?
Sight is really important to me: without it I’d be in a real mess. But you can also see through the sense of feel and all the senses for feeling are just as important.

I’m a graphic artist and the visual aspect is how I earn my livelihood.

What is your vision as a creative person for your own work?
To inspire and touch people.

What is your tactic for making the world a better place?
Don’t throw stones if you live in a glasshouse. Think about your own actions before you criticise those of others.

When did you last give back and what was it?
Today – a smile.

What is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?
There are quite a few, so it’s not that easy to answer, but the beauty of nature never fails to impress me.

Sunrise or sunset?
Sunrise and the dawning of a new day. Without the sun we wouldn’t be able to see anything and we wouldn’t even exist.
