Describe your creative lab in a few words?
Messy

In two sentences, how would you describe your work technique? 
I put blobs of color on paper and convince people they look like something

What is the project of which you are most proud of?
I wouldn’t want to make the other projects jealous by picking a favorite.

What are your favourite colors to create?
I would very much like to create new colors but it is very hard to imagine what they would look like. Having only 8 colors to work with can be very frustrating.

Why did you become an artist?
I decided when i was pretty little. Drawing was always what i was good at. It was either this or a lucrative career in poking things with sticks.

In four words, how would you describe your style of illustration?
Line, color, line, repeat

What is the project of your dreams?
The New Yorker cover. Well, the front cover. I did the back cover once but it doesn’t count.

What does a typical day in the life of Aaron looks like?
I lay in bed and draw. It is a very difficult way to make a living.

What inspires you?
Process. It’s not where you start it’s where you go.

What is your favourite blog or website?
