What does a typical day in the life of Andi looks like?
-Option 1: standing up at 7, taking a shower, riding on my bike to my office, creating the whole day amazing new clay-illustrations, going to the gym, meeting friends and go to bed.
-Option 2: snoozing about 2-3 hours, standing up at whenever, riding with my bike to my office, watching the whole day you-tube-videos, riding home, go to sleep.

What inspires you?
There are many things in everyday life, which are really inspiring. But I especially like watching tourists making selfies – a perfect inspiration for character-design. But of course the internet is also pretty helpful.
