When asked about what inspired him to become a professional the artist replied that he never intended to become a professional artist, he just made art and everything else fell into place. The artist looks to the masters and also to his grandmothers drawing for ideas.
Worl thinks that you should learn all the rules from a master of design, before you learn how to break them! What a great concept!
