“I really can’t think of one specific book [that impacted my life positively], but maybe the “Amulet” series by Kazu Kibuishi, because he was by far my favorite illustrator out there for graphic novels. He really inspired me to draw, like, backgrounds for comics and different things. [Kibuishi] got me really interested in art. I don’t make a ton of art now, I just remember being really interested in it. I sometimes sketch different characters and make characters for different universes. Or I really enjoy making backgrounds or drawing buildings and things, just like Kazu Kibuishi is good at.”
