Interview
Acknowledged as one of the most influential designers by WebDesign Magazine, Patrick Boyer began his career as a Designer/ Art Director in 1998 through "UrbanCowboy", an international acclaimed creative design identity. Patrick creates contemporary illustrations and montages/collages within Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator; blending & re-touched images (from a fashion retouching and photography background), vector designs and some hand drawn elements. With a solid background in Marketing & Communication, Patrick uses his distinct style(s) and knowledge of the industry to develop personalized designs & illustrations for a wide range of clients needs.
Question: What drew you to illustration/design? Patrick: A mix of odd jobs, photography & wanting to seem sexy and artistic. Question: Do you have any formal design training? Patrick: Not really, I studied Communication, but I did often take naps in the visual art’s department. They had a fantastic couch! Question: Where are you originally from? Patrick: Ottawa, Ontario. Question: Where do you live now & what drew you there? Patrick: After 4 years of wandering the world, I’ve now a semi-stable studio in Vancouver. Question: Where is your studio and can you describe it for me? Patrick: It’s a short walk from the Ocean, in a 2 story Heritage building (which for us Canadians usually means a 100 years old). Question: Who or What is your biggest inspiration? Patrick: The internet. Question: Do you keep a scrapbook? Patrick: I do - mostly random thoughts, daily lists and coffee stains. Question: What are your interests outside of illustration? Patrick: Painting, photography, reading, cooking, yoga and running, to name a few. Question: What would be your dream job/commission? Patrick: Perhaps working on a Tim Burton movie poster or CD cover for Wolfmother. Question: Who is/are your art hero/es? Patrick: Andy Warhol, Dali & Blu (Berlin Street Artist).
Question: If you were not an illustrator, what would you be? Patrick: A hobo (but with really fashionable clothes) and multiple round the world tickets. Question: Have you any hidden talents? Patrick: I make really strong coffee and apparently my guacamole taste like heaven. Question: If you could live anywhere, where would you go? Patrick: That’s the million dollar question. I’ve always wanted to go back to New York, love the Lower East Side and Chelsea area, yet living in Europe seems a good fit too. Question: If you won the lottery what would you do with the money? Patrick: I’d hide it all in my little shoes. Of course they’d be really really expensive shoes. Question: Would you continue to illustrate? Patrick: Naturally! Just with more expensive equipment, and my painting can be done outside in my own successful vineyard. Question: If you could travel back in time, who would be the one person you would want to meet? Patrick: Perhaps a pot luck dinner with Jim Morrison, Leonard Cohen, Jesus and Andy Warhol. Question: What do you have bookmarked? Patrick: Design is Kinky, Perez Hilton, Craigslist and face hunter just to name a few.
