Describe a typical day in your life.
I don’t like to wake up early, because I am a night person! So I wake up, have a coffee or a tea, and sit at my laptop to start the work. Checking work chats, email. During the day I make some line drawing for new patterns and a lot of graphics for RP. In the evening I have some drawing and reading. Drawing is a constant component of my day!
