What does your office space look like?
I work in my bedroom! and it can get quite messy.

What kind of music do you listen when you are working?
Musicals mainly, sometimes I listen to indie and folk. Recent favourite has been ‘Eagles’. I have had that on repeat for 2 weeks! 80% of my Spotify playlists’ literally the current and past west-end and rest are ‘Eagles’ and ‘inside llewyn davis’ sound track!

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work?
Not really. I am sort of a ‘go with the flow’ person so if the inspiration is not there I don’t force it UNLESS I HAVE A DEADLINE. But when I am focused on something I don’t stop until my parents shout at me for not eating any meals.

What tips would you give to improve productivity? Turn off your wifi.
What is your best tip for saving time ?

There’s much tip to give other than ‘turn off your wifi and your phone too’
You're better than your colleagues to : (don’t really understand this question...)

What is the best advice anyone has given you ?
From all my art/illustration tutors in the U.K, they always used to tell me that when you draw, draw what you want to draw not what you think what people might like. Also I remember back in the days where I only used pencil to sketch, my tutor said to me ‘never be afraid of using material/medium you are not comfortable with, because happy
accident might just happen’. :-)

What is your routine start and end of the day ?
I don’t have a set routine but I can say that I am a night owl.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
I can’t decide whether its tablet or scanner! They are equally as important!
