Aug 23 Aug 23 Lardenoije Omule Illustrations, Interviews Instagram Omule : Hi, can you tell me how everything started? Lardenoije : After graduating the academy of fine arts i started working as a freelance graphic designer. After a few years i started missing the freedom of doing my own stuff instead of creating for others. So i made an instagram account and started creating what resulted in the work i make today. Omule : What is like to be an illustrator? Where do you get your inspiration from? Lardenoije : I actually don’t really know since professionally i’m a graphic designer and the illustrations are something I do for myself and rarely for others. Inspiration comes from everything, just living my life and dealing with my emotions. Omule : PC or Mac? Pencil and paper or tablet? Photoshop or Illustrator? Lardenoije : Definitely Mac. I primarily use a Wacom tablet and Illustrator, but i would love to learn myself to paint what i’m now doing digital. Omule : Can you choose the perfect soundtrack for the best day ever? Lardenoije : Get This - Slipknot. Omule : What superpower would you like to have and why? Lardenoije : Make myself invisible just so i don’t need to deal with the people around me. Getting away with stuff is a nice bonus of course. Omule : Goods and bads in your industry. Lardenoije : I post my work primarily on instagram and this is a great way to get it out there but it also comes with a lot of stress and frustration.
