Interview: Thomas Slater

What is your greatest achievement?
Not getting kicked out of school. I'm kidding. I think it's something that I haven't achieved yet and am looking forward to. Although being able to make drawings for a living is something I'm working on. I'm not quite there yet but that will be pretty amazing. 

How would you describe your work/style to someone who hadn't seen it?
Fun, colourful, contemporary, traditionals, sarcastic, charming. Whatever suits the project but, generally I'm trying to make people smile whilst learning something new about my own working methods. 

What piece of advice would you give yourself? 
Skate more, draw more.

When are you happiest?
Staying up late and finishing a drawing. Listening to Westwood on a Saturday night with beers and my homies. Visiting a European city with my girlfriend, or holidays with my amazing family. 

What is the worst job you have ever had?
The only bad job I haven't had is cleaning toilets! You have to find positives in every job or you'll go mad. 

Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Tom Cruise.

What is your karaoke song?
'Upside Down' by Diana Ross or something by the stones. 

What do you dislike most about popular culture?
I'm a lover not a hater.

What is the greatest invention of all time?
The bicycle.

If you didn't do what you do, what would you do?
