Interview: Pintachan.

What is your greatest achievement?
Getting to love off my work while forming a family with my two amazing kids.

How would you describe your work/style to someone who hadn't seen it?
Retro, naïve, childish....... These are the words that come to mind when describing my work. It's an aesthetic language that I identify myself with. Although it is mainly a direct and kind medium to wrap ideas or concepts that don't necessarily belong to a kids world.

What piece of advice would you give your 15 year old self?
Buy as much acid strawberry chewing gum as you can, they're going to be discontinued. 


When are you happiest?
Spending time with my children, playing Lego.

What is the worst job you have ever had?
Having to manually manufacture 3000 badges at full throttle in just one day.

Who would play you in the movie of your life?
I'd love to have Michael Caine, though I see Peter Sellers more in it?


What is your karaoke song?
"Sunshine, Lollipops & Rainbows" by Lesley Gore.

What do you dislike most about popular culture?
The fact that Robbie the Robot did not get to be UN president.

What is the greatest invention of all time?
Liquorice and the Internet, at the same level.

If you didn't do what you do. What would you do?
I'd travel back in time to join Jim Henson's company.
