Apex Magazine Interviews by me
My interview of cover artist Lucas de Alcântara, for Apex Magazine #70. Excerpt:
This month’s Apex Magazine cover artist is Lucas de Alcântara. Working with mechanical and organic ideas, and different types of artistic media, he brings a wonderful vision to this month’s Apex Magazine cover.
"You took part in the Inktober project late last year, where artists post ink art pieces collaboratively throughout the month of October to social media. Does working on sketch projects like Inktober help to focus the styles you work with, or is it a chance to expand into other ideas and techniques?"

Of these latest weird sketches from #Moleskine journal, the one at the top is my favorite. There’s something menacing that came out of it, I might have to explore that a bit more.
