Featured Artist – Gary Sawyer
Artwork by Gary Sawyer
What type of environment do you prefer to work in? At home or in a studio? Listening to music?
I had a great studio in New Zealand sharing with other illustrators. It was nice to have someone to annoy in the afternoon when I needed a break. Since I’ve been back in the UK I’ve been using our spare room. It’s disorganized, has poor natural light and the worst floral carpet I’ve ever seen.
What type of artwork do you have hanging in your home?
A Sarah Maxey poster I liberated from a billboard outside my studio in Wellington, a Sarah Maxey screen print, a couple of etchings from an old flatmate and lots of framed postcards.
What is your favorite way to get out of a creative block?
I live a couple of minutes away from a National Trust park so a 30 minute cycle through the woods there usually does the trick.
If you had to describe your body of work in one word, what would that word be?
What magazines do you personally read?
Varoom, Printmaking Today and the Guardian Weekend.
What question do you wish an interviewer would ask you?
Did you make any New Year’s resolutions?
