When was the first moment you decided you wanted to be an artist?
Actually i don't remember exactly when.  I think it was during elementary school.. I had been drawing since i became conscious about myself.

Where do you find your inspiration?
​Inspiration might spark upon anything.. A song, a feeling or a status. Basically,  i get inspired by the life itself​. I see the same things as anybody else, I just express them differently.

If you could work with another artist, who would it be? / who is your favorite artist?
Mcbess and James Jean are my favorites.

What has been the best moment in your career?
​I would say my first solo exhibition was one of these moments. On the other hand, one of my illustrations was promoted on Twitter by Adobe, this caught me up on emotions too. Because most of my drawings had come into existence by the help of their products.  As i saw that tweet, i felt like the feedback cycle was complete.
What is your ideal day?
​During the day, i am designing T-shirt graphics for Turkey's one of the biggest textile companies called LC Waikiki. At nights, I am busy with my own stuff.  
As i work for myself, i constantly listen to music​ and always have a sketchbook ready nearby. All the things i draw on the sketchbook builds the foundations of my illustrations.

Who is your role model?
I don't have a definitive role model​.

If you could do anything, what would it be?
Might be seen little bit utopian, However i would like to restart life again. This way we might be able to do things better this time.

Why do you create art?
Illustration is one of the most important expression style for me along with the music. Drawing rather than talking puts me at ease.​ It is a more of a detox process for me, a necessity of  some sort. When i share the outcomes of these with people, they sometimes feel that they are not alone.. And this is the ultimate reward for me

What art do you most identify with?
​Graphic Arts​ & illustration

How has your art changed throughout your life?
​Especially in last 3​ years, i had a chance to share my works with masses and i have been meeting new people. As my sharing network expands, my motivation for creation grows accordingly.

What is your dream project?
​I love custom vinyl toys.  I try to work on vinyl toys if i could create some spare time.  I guess having couple of my own signature vinyl characters​ sold on shops and seeing them on people's desks would make me very happy.

What is the best piece of advice you have received?
A master's quote:  Always leave a space on what you draw, for the people to fill their own imaginations.​
