Three questions for Marco Pavone
Where does the inspiration come from?
My inspiration is everything. I don’t love to have just one way to make my work. I love to change my language to find always different images.
What are your work tools?
My animation is almost 2D style, anyway I often use 3D software to get 2D animation.
Currently, I use Blender. Naturally, I use 2D software to draw and paint, like Jimpy.
Do you think your work can inspire other artists?
I don’t think that when I create my animation. I can hope my work can be a source of inspiration for someone, but I don’t worry about it.
