He She It They I (Stephanie Anderson & Dave Ladd)
Place of Birth:
Currently Living in:
Train, bus, bike, or other:
Walking and driving, with a touch of train travel.
What's the most important object in your studio?
Books, artworks, noggins, each other. The good chair!
Paper or Plastic?
A bit of both.
If you could resurrect one no longer living person to have lunch with, knowing you will have to return them to the grave right after coffee, who would it be?
Steph: My dad, Phil Otto. I'd love to see him, and I'd love him to meet Dave.
Preferred method of dealing with an encounter with an acquaintance whose name you can't remember.
Dave says, "Heeeeeere's Trouble!" which signals Steph to introduce herself.
Why don't you flip the tortoise over, Leon?
You mean if he's on his back? Of course we'd flip him over if he's on his back, poor wee fella. If he's upright, we'll leave him be. On a side note, our Scottish mate Avi pronounces Tortoise like it rhymes with 'War Toys'. Sounds great.
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Oh wow, just found out a woodchuck is a groundhog. How delightful!
Favourite client so far?
Sometimes the client or product is great, sometimes the brief rules. Other times we produce something unexpected or special to us, and sometimes the people we get to work with are what makes a job great. Every job has something. We're pretty lucky I think.
Favourite imaginary client?
How does your mother describe your profession?
Coffee or tea?
In general: Coffee in the morning. Tea throughout the day.
What's your earliest drawing memory?
Steph: Family driving holiday around Eastern Australia where I filled a book with pics of animals I was seeing for the first time, like bandicoots and those little crabs that make the sand balls, and my mum transcribed my descriptions for me. Dave: Guns; Eagles; the KISS logo – none of which I've drawn since.
How do you prefer to spend your mornings?
Walking around the bay near our house discussing ideas, spotting critters, and finishing up with a coffee and juice.
