MAX ROBERTS ILLUSTRATIONS
– Hand drawn designs by HK based Illustrator –
Getting to know you, and your work:
How long have you been based in Hong Kong?
All my life (24 years) except for 1 year living in the Bahamas and 3 years in the UK for University
What is your favorite medium to work with?
Pen & ink on paper
What projects are you working on now?
More experimentation with color, which is something that I’ve rarely done and is outside my comfort zone.
Is there an element of art you enjoy working with the most? Why?
Taking ordinary items or concepts and drawing them in unusual ways.
How did you start making art?
Sounds cliché, but I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. Everybody draws when they’re a kid – I just never stopped.
What inspires you?
As long as I’m in the mood to draw, I feel like I can get inspiration everywhere. For me, the best way to get new ideas is to walk around the city, being more conscious of what I’m seeing instead of zoning out.
