Alex is a freelance illustrator and comic book artist from London. Whilst working almost exclusively digitally, She keeps a traditional feel to her images through brushes and textures. Alex's illustrations tend to be jam-packed with loud characters and bold colours. She particularly enjoys drawing weird monsters getting their groove on, music-makers and things from questionable points of view. Alex is another newbie to the HoS fold, having just exhibited with us this year with Arty Farty. Anyway, enough yapping from us, here's Alex...
HoS / What has been your strangest job/commission?
AM / Back when I was fresh and green and had yet to lean that there are some things you can (and should) say no to someone asked me to do some storyboards for an independent film about the antics of a pair of male prostitutes. It was a pretty graphic little picture. I don't think I'll ever forget watching the director lying down on a table during a location scout stimulate getting a blow job.
HoS / Got any habits?
AM / I'll let my lack of fingernails attest to that.
HoS / What do you do with yourself all day?
AM / Draw and obsessively try and outrun stress and anxiety on a static bike. as well as that i'm also a teaching assistant on Middlesex's Illustration BA and help wrangle The Drawn Chorus Collective.
HoS / If your work was a song, TV show, film or a person, what/who would it be?
AM / 'Go Directly to Space' by Terror Pigeon. even if it isn't you should all go listen to that song because the second half of it is the the most amazingly feel good thing ever.
HoS / Tell us 2 facts and 1 lie about you.
AM / I once nearly choked to death in an eating competition
AM / I can play the musical saw
AM / I was born cross eyed
