    “The main problem I find with a maximalist approach is how long it takes to create a piece. Being a commercial illustrator, I always have to work to really tight deadlines, so I’ve developed my style with these in mind. Traditional 3D modelling and sculpting can take ages, but as I don’t want my work to look ‘real’, I can process it much faster. I like to create my own stylized versions of real-world objects that are a lot quicker to model, and have more personality, too. Adjusting/balancing all the elements, textures, colours and lighting can still take a considerable while though, so I re-use a lot of settings and materials to save time.”

    "I’m not sure whether what I am doing is maximalist. It’s for other people to label it. The way my work is is because of where I am. The network, the society. But the subject – and message – should come from the artist’s very own spirituality."
