“The organization serves a great cause”
What is your creative process?
Julian: I usually start with an interesting composition. Then I get everything laid out and fine tune the colors until I get something that is pleasing to the eye.

What is your favorite piece of artwork that is not your own?
Julian: Anything by loish.
What do you listen to while you work?
Julian: Usually indie or electronic music.
