Based on the military themes in many of your illustrations, are you a history enthusiast?
I love history for sure, but I didn't expect this part of my career at all. It all came from a historical painting I made on demand for a friend years back (see The Battle of Zama above). A famous business man and lover of Napoleonic lore got in touch and connected me with certain people. I ended up making illustrations about historical – often military – subjects. The crazy thing is that I never really sought out this career, but as the clients did enjoy my work, they always asked for more. Nowadays I'm less on illustration though. I'm primarily back on painting and music.
