This is the second part of our interview with Stefan G. Bucher, owner of the website "The daily monster". Go back to part 1 of our interview if you missed it. 


Can you tell us a little bit about the tools you are using to draw? 

Stefan G. Bucher:

I use Faber-Castell PITT artist pens, Prismacolor Premier pens, Staedtler pigment liners, Tombow ABT pens, Sharpies (fine point and wedge tip), Prismacolor Premier markers, and Yasutomo Sumi ink on regular old uncoated bond paper.


Can you tell us a little bit about your creation process? Do you improvise as you are drawing or do you have an idea about the shape of the monster you wish to sketch?

Stefan G. Bucher:

It's always an improvisation. I've tried going into it with a plan, and it never works. The Monsters come through as they please. If I try to impose myself on the process it only leads to frustration and bad drawings.


What qualities and abilities do you think someone needs to succeed at drawing?

Stefan G. Bucher:

Reliable and long-lasting ass-to-seat adhesion. Nothing else.

Would you like to try other medium(s) eventually (like a comic strip for example?)

Stefan G. Bucher:

I grew up on comics, and it's influenced my graphic design work greatly. But as a medium to work in, it's not for me. I'm not disciplined enough to keep the continuity going. I'm working on more evolved animations, though.


Who are some of the artists that inspire you?

Stefan G. Bucher:

Ralph Steadman, Ronald Searle, Peter de Seve, J.J. Sempé, Kurt Halbritter, H-G Rauch, Lara Tomlin, Laura Laine, Christoph Niemann, Ingres, Egon  Schiele, the people at Pixar and the team behind Kung Fu Panda, special effects artists, record producers, TV writers like Aaron Sorkin. The list goes on.

I just want to thank Stefan for taking the time to answer all these questions! There is nothing more motivating for someone who is learning how to draw to read about someone who has a real passion like Stefan does! I hope you have enjoyed this interview and don't forget to "draw it forward"!
