Artist Spotlight - Kingsley Nebechi

 

The February 2013 issue of Button Club features Guest Artist Kingsley Nebechi. Kingsley is a UK based artist, who originally hails from Italy. He was incredibly generous with his time, sketching out several possible ideas for the button, and working with me on colors and design. Here, a closer look into his creative genius.

Source of inspiration:     My main sources are Italian Vintage Posters, Comic Books and random things i see out and about.
Three adjectives that describe your art:    Colourful, detailed and bold.
Favorite creative tool:    A mechanical pencil my father gave me 4 years ago. It's my favourite pencil! I sketch 80% of my paper sketches with it!
Favorite snack:    Chocolate is my forbidden pleasure! I can't get enough of it!
Favorite creative resource:    ILOVEOFFSET The talks are brilliant!
Dog or Cat?    Dog.
What music are you listening to right now?   Got two albums on the playlist for today! Friendly Fires and Jay Electronica.
If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be and why?
    I'd probably say Batman in the Dark Knight Rises. He gets pretty messed up by Bane, but he picks himself up and exercises to be better and stronger. I feel like I have the same type of attitude towards my work! I love practicing new techniques so I can get better and better.
What's the strangest thing you've ever seen?    This cartoon called "Adventure Time." It's extremely strange but it stimulates my creativity. It's unbelievably weird.
Favorite mythical creature:    Medusa! Anyone who looks directly into her eyes turns into stone? Awesome! haha
