Please introduce yourself in a few words. Who are you, where are you from and why have you become an illustrator?
Hi guys, I’m sardinecosmique, and in real life my name is Anaïs de Sousa. I love painting, and that’s the only thing I can do really well – so I studied illustration! Now I’m doing an MA in graphic design, and I’m loving it.
Can you tell us how the design ‘Air music‘ came about, and how the idea for it came up? Did you have a special source of inspiration?
I was drawing a dinosaur playing air guitar, which I thought looked fun. So I created a few more dinosaurs, and laFraise gave me a few friendly suggestions that helped come up with the final design. So here is a big THANK YOU to the person who helped me there!
Does this mean that you like Guitar Hero? And do you play air guitar yourself?
Yep, I love Guitar Hero! And even if I have to confess that I don’t play air guitar myself, I do have a lot of respect for people who do. A promising start to musical careers!
How long have you known laFraise, and how did you become aware of this tasty little fruit?
By pure chance I discovered laFraise 3 or 4 years ago, and I thought the concept was really great. So I tried to submit a few designs. And since there are quite a number of really talented people at laFraise, they give you a push into the right direction.
If you wanted to recommend laFraise to somebody, what would you tell them?
That laFraise is a great website with great t-shirts!
Are you up to anything else other than drawing?
Dinosaurs, food (i.e. bacon and pizza) and video games. And of course watching people play air guitar!
What’s on the agenda for this year and next?
To come up with more good ideas for designs on laFraise, and to graduate from university.
Can you draw a version of strawberries and cream for us? Thank you for taking the time, and for the drawing!
