Who is Luca Boni and what do you do?
I’m a 23 year old self taught Johannesburg based Illustrator , I paint things most of the time digitally using Photoshop and I hope people like it.
How would you define your style or art?
I don’t really know ,I have still so much to learn and maybe one day I will have developed a distinctive style on personal projects. I do although tend to study the old masters so maybe we can call my style “high hopes”.
What inspires your work?
I am inspired by wherever my thoughts are at at that moment in time and other artists/illustrators.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on some concept art for a first person shooter that will be released for mobile with some super talented game developers and it’s going to be AWESOME!
What advice would you give young creatives looking to do what you do?
Draw everyday ,remember that competition is for horses not for artists and don’t let low paying internships offered by companies exploit your skills and degrade your self worth, you are the maker of things and that’s priceless and ‘godlike’… and draw everyday.
What has been the highlight of your career thus far?
I would say having the opportunity to go and work in Cape Town for a year with some seriously talented illustrators as being a serious highlight thus far.
Where can our readers follow your work?
I have a facebook page called Art of Luca Boni that you can use. Feel free to ask questions via the page as well.
