LCS INTERVIEW :: Will Murai

Interview with Will Murai

Why do you do what you do?

I’ve drawn since I was a kid, I’ve always loved the arts…I don’t think I was inspired by someone to start, all the thing happened naturally. Art was the only subject I used to be good at school, but I never thought I could ever make money doing it. It was more like fun to me. Then, when I was 15-17 (I don’t remember well) I started doing some folders and comics for the company my dad works at, got some experience since then, and here I am now!

LCS INTERVIEW :: Von Glitschka

Have you always been and wanted to be an illustrator?

When I went to school the main thing was being a ‘Graphic Designer’ and at that time they had everyone take ‘Illustration’ class. I’ve always drawn so that was always a creative bentIeasily gravitated towards. When I graduated I didn’t think of myself as an ‘Illustrator’. As I continued to work I’d come across projects needing an illustrative approach and I’d just do it myself. So over the years my approach to design is such that I not call myself an ‘Illustrative Designer’. When I illustrate I am making design decisions and when I design I am using an illustrative approach. The two are so fused together for me it’s hard to separate them in terms of my creative process.

LCS INTERVIEW :: onesidezero

What is Inkthis and how tough was it to get it off the ground?

Inkthis is a design exhibition I started with artist/designer Gurps Kaur in mid 2006 as we were getting frustrated at the lack of design & illustration produced in our city. The first exhibition was limited to 4 weeks before the gallery closed with 1 week setup time so everyone involved spent long booze filled hours into the night creating their works. The end result was amazing and big thanks go out to all involved!
