In 2010 I first started experimenting with dot-to-dot drawings. 5 years later I have published 4 books that have been translated into 13 languagesand have sold over 400,000 copies around the world.
I’m often asked where the idea came from and there is no short answer to that question. It’s a culmination of years of experimentation, inspiration, hard work and luck.
In my day job as a graphic designer, I often don’t have the opportunity to be as creative as I would like to be. There are many things that get in the way, such as clients, budgets, time constraints, style guides — and opinions.
I have always been a huge advocate of side projects where most of those things don’t get in the way.
