What is your favourite coffee shop?
L: Ugh, that’s a tough question. I would say Café May in Hamburg, they have several locations troughout the city and the white coffee served in a large bowl is legendary.
A: My current favorite coffee shop is Equal Grounds in the South Wedge neighborhood of Rochester, NY. That place has a great, welcoming vibe and really good coffee. I have to give Joe Bean (also in Rochester) an honorable mention, however.
Any exciting projects coming up?
L: I just finished screenprinting some of my illustrations. Although I did it a few times before it’s always new and exciting seeing your illustrations come to life step by step, colour by colour. Now that I’m warmed up I would like to print a really big one with four or five colours. So maybe there will be an illustrated calendar poster for Christmas, we’ll see.
A: Yes – Some very exciting projects! One in particular is for a prominent company involved in the gaming world… so I’m pretty pumped about that. It’s the first time I’m teaming up with another illustrator (and close friend) to tackle a major project. We’re pretty excited.
