Starting off my new interview series is Megan from Megan Illustrations. Before we start I’d like to tell you a little bit about the series- Coffee Break Chat is a series of short ‘get to know’ interviews designed for busy parents to read on their cuppa break. We have several wonderful talents lined up and I’m very excited about it! Now onto the wonderful Megan, whose work you’ve probably seen on many kids in the form of Cribstar’s Face, Bunny and Cracks collections.
What’s your business Mantra?
Mac or PC?
I’m a Mac girl all the way! I do all of my work using my MacBook which is slowly but surely going to die on me soon. I’ve had this one coming up to about 4 years (which according to Apple makes it a ‘vintage product’, meaning if it breaks they won’t fix it?!) Not good news!
Tea or Coffee?
I seem to have an issue with never finishing a cup of tea because they go cold so quickly! It’s either that or I forget I even made one. But I drink both, and I am a big fan of a Costa chai latte. And a glass of wine at the weekend.
Netflix or book?
I read a really good book recently that massively affected my productivity because all I wanted to do was finish the book. But that is extremely rare for me as I usually lose interest during the first chapter. So Netflix! I enjoy a good film but I’ve got a short attention span when it comes to TV programs.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Contradicting my previous answer here. I have a big guilty pleasure that comes in the form of reality TV! It seems to be the only thing that I actually enjoy watching. Programs like The Only Way is Essex and Made in Chelsea are the highlights of my week. And Love Island is the best of them all. It’s bad I know! And another vice of mine is crisps.
Monochrome or colour?
It’s so hard to choose! It completely depends on the work or the design, or my mood. So I’ll say both.
