Inspiration: Sunday Grins

Sunday Grins! with Mia Christopher

Sunday Grins! with Mia Christopher | Doodlers Anonymous

Yes, it's nice to find out how an illustrator got started or what tools they use. But if you'd really like to get to know a person, you should ask them this question...

When you press an unknown button, what do you hope it will do? Really, what do you hope will happen?

After you've had a think about that, take a peek at our new Q&A series - every Sunday, all hand drawn, and a little bit silly!

First up to be interviewed is the charming Mia Chirstopher. I like that her illustrations are simple and happy, like a child who's just discovered what a pencil can do. There's also something funny and curious going on behind the lines - something that I suspect could make a sterile gallery feel as comfortable as story time.

Q: If you didn't have toes, what would you like instead?

Q: What outfit would you more like to wear, but are afraid to?

Q: What is a new landmark that you wish was in your hometown?

Q: Is there a pet that you wish existed?

Q: What surprise would you most like to find under your bed?

If you fancy more of Mia's work, check her website and flickr. She also has one of my favourite sketchbook collections, definitely worth a peek.
