Stevie says fellow illustrator, Anton Petrov, has been a constant source of inspiration over the years as he develops and evolves his own personal style. While finding his definitive look, his illustrative versatility has already proved useful.
Stevie’s efforts to illustrate a “Last Minute Guide to Birth”, was one such project that he describes as “quite informative” – he was a bachelor at the time. Enjoying his solitude sits high on Stevie’s agenda as does lazy book reading on grassy patches. He bought children’s classic “The Wind on the Willows” as a vintage hard cover for the pictures only to be surprisingly taken in by the Kenneth Grahame’s storytelling. The films- ‘Kiseki’ (I Wish), My Neighbour, Totoro and Ernest & Celestine offer sublime consistency to Stevie’s family focused and nurturing character.
