From Brooklyn, New York, Connor Willumsen is an illustrator and cartoonist with an impressive collection of high quality work at a young age.
Connor answers some questions relating to how he got into his work and how he does it.
How did you get into the illustration you do and what was your training?
Can you describe your work process and the tools used in creating your work?
I don’t like to work with anything I can’t take with me on a plane. I like the idea of being able to get work done in hotel rooms. As far as coloring goes, Photoshop gets the job done quick, but at the same time I make time to paint in my sketchbook so my color theory doesn’t atrophy’.
How did you get good at drawing people?
Pencils were easy to trial with, then ink was a little more dangerous, but with a brush you can still get away with being loose. The logical conclusion of all this was for me to use technical pens when I sketch. It forces you to concentrate on the motion of your hand, the line has to be right every time or the drawing has failed. And if you do screw it up, you have to be resourceful to work around it and fix it. Throw out your erasers’.

Good luck Connor!
