We welcome a new contributor to Creatabot – Jennifer Denty is a freelance illustrator and designer from Hertfordshire and we are really glad to have her input on Creatabot. Jennifer will be posting articles about events and creatives in her area as well as the creative subjects that interest and inspire her. We asked Jennifer some questions to find out more about her…
So Jennifer, who inspires you?
That’s a big question! I’m inspired a lot by what’s around me, people I encounter on a day-to-day basis, bits of conversations, vintage and retro design style. Illustrators and artists wise, Quentin Blake, Mary Blair and Amano Yoshitaka. Mainly line artists that use bright and bold colours, I remember being awed by Naoko Takeuchi’s illustrative style when I was a lot younger.
Do you have any pets?
I personally have a Hedgehog, not the garden variety, an African pygmy breed. But I also currently live with 3 cats and a dog (a time-consuming Malamute).
Any claims to fame?
I definitely invented the DVD player. I distinctly remember drawing a CD player that plugged into the telly..then the drawing mysteriously went missing, right before the DVD player came out!
Maybe you can predict the future…do you have any other predictions for future technology?
Haha! I do! I see a future filled with floating holographic signs stuffed full to the brim with advertisements, there will be no escape!
Whats planned in the not too distant future for you?
I’m in the process of creating a ‘Sew-Your-Own’ range, using some of the surface pattern designs I’ve created recently. So I’m really wrapped up in getting that packaged up and finding stockists at the moment.
