1. Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Luc Latulippe and I suppose I’m an illustrator. I say “suppose” because like most professional creatives I wear lots of hats during my career, like graphic design, surface design, and web projects, and years ago I used to be in animation. Also, because things have changed so dramatically over the past 6-7 years, trying to pay the bills just with illustration has gotten terribly difficult. But to keep it short, I’ll just say “illustrator.” :)
2. What’s your hardware setup?
A 21.5” iMac recently replaced my defective old MacBook Pro, and I much prefer this new setup. I like a laptop for some things, but not for working comfortably at a desk for long hours. I used to use a plain vanilla Wacom tablet to draw vectors in Illustrator, but somehow I’ve slowly gone to just using my mouse instead. My phone is an Android Galaxy S III, and while I do have Sketchbook Pro on it, I prefer sketching on paper.
3. What’s your workspace look like?
We live in a small one-bedroom and both our home offices are compact affairs, squeezed into a corner of our living room. I sit by a big south-facing balcony from where my dog can heroically bark at squirrels. I’ve tried shared office places, but ultimately I prefer working from home (which I’ve been doing for around 18 years now!). And I’m surrounded by artwork from good friends.
4. What tools do you use to make your cartoons?
Pretty basic: a sketchbook, Illustrator, and Photoshop. My sketchbook of choice is Field Notes, and my favourite drawing tool is a Pentel brush-pen, or a Sharpie. Lately I’ve taken to doing morning warm-up sketches (featuring Batgirl for some reason) on small Post-Its and posting them on Instagram. I scan sketches into Illustrator and finish them there, occasionally adding small flourishes in Photoshop.
