Chrissie Abbott Interview

Chrissie Abbott will also be with us next week for December’s theatre spectacular.  As she works mostly with collage  I am intrigued to see what she will come up with, with just pen and paper…

What are you working on today?

The cover of a book about Einstein’s theories and opinions, a  keyboard stand for Little Boots.

What are your main sources of inspiration?

Music, friends, adventures

What did you draw as a child?


Do you work to music?

I cant work without music

Can you play an instrument?

I used to be able to play the flute and the recorder…bit lame.  I wish I’d learned the drums.

Who are your favourite artists this week?

(if you mean art artists) Martin Creed, Ashley Lande, Erika Somogyi

(musicians) Fleetwood Mac, Elliott Smith, Film School, Apse, Dinosaur Junior

How important is music to your work?


Is studying at the right place really important for illustrators/ designers?

I don’t think so…

What’s the best thing you learned at university?

That I could leave.
