Jessie Penfold is one of those girls who has an infectious and mesmerising personality. Personally, I am holding on to everything she says as she emulates that ultimate girl power ego that you simply cannot resist. With her shockingly blood red hair, sharp fringe, and a style that could possibly be inspired by Velma of Scooby-Doo fame fused with a slice of vintage punk rock, you definitely cant miss her. By day, Jessie works at Boston Studio and by night she is working her magic as an illustrator. With clients including Vice, Gash and FUN Magazine, this lady has a certain exciting buzz about her.
Here is a little inside info on Jessie...
What are you doing right now?
Right this second; skiving off work.
In life; trying to be an illustrator, working a dull day job to pay the bills.
I love to draw because...
It takes me somewhere else. I know who I am and what I am about when I draw.
I can push it if I want or I can pull it back. With patience it's totally under my control.
What is your proudest moment in life so far?
Professionally the first time I saw my work in a magazine.
Personally, when my niece Alice was born.
What are your vices?
Smoking, laziness, messiness, frustration.
Best music track to listen to to get the creative juices flowing...
Oh god, I usually watch CSI / True Blood / One Tree Hill or something online while I draw. And when it comes to music I couldn't possibly choose just one song...
I'll make you a mix...
