When a filmmaker makes a movie, that first ten years before he makes his [or her] first movie is probably the most important ten years of his life or her life, because they don’t really know if they’ll ever be able to do what it is they want to do. It could be just a pipe dream, yet at the same time they have to devote everything to it if it’s ever going to come true.

True if your a Filmmaker, illustrator, writer, musician, artist etc…love QT :)

Anonymous asked: Hi there I was wondering what material you use for pieces like your romeo and juliet piece and how you manage to get the texture into the solid blocks of colour? They look so charmingly hand done but also a bit digital so I can't tell! Thanks :-)

So one way of doing it which (i think) I did on parts of the Romeo and Juliet piece is you paint the solid block of colour with Photoshop, place a texture layer over the colour and then turn it in to a clipping mask. Try that :) 

naturepluslife asked: Hi David! Your works are really awesome! May I ask did you use hand watercolor or paint it in on photoshop ?

Hello. Thanks for your question. Most of my illustrations are mixed media and a combination of water colour pencil crayons, pen ink and Photoshop. x

You are not accidental. The world needs you. Without you, something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it.

Yo Tumblr….I’ve not been posting much new work recently. The reason for this is twofold :)
 Reason 1: I’m working on some very excellent and very exciting projects that i can’t post about yet as they are a secret, but rest assured they are so flipping exciting and insane and I can’t wait to show people what I’ve been up to!
Reason 2: it’s now Autumn which is our favourite season in the Litchfield household. Therefore we have been going out on lots of walks and having conker fights and getting away from my computer for a while.
Till soon
