Florence does a lot of everything – but usually illustrations of thinly veiled personal attacks on people, full on nudity, and mystical star sign crystal based stuff.
year of birth: I’m 26 alright…
birthplace: Guildford – SURREY
current residence: London
started in 2015
Where did it all begin?
I fancied a boy who wanted to go to Brighton University to do illustration. He didn’t get in, then he broke my heart, so to get back at him I applied to Brighton Uni and got in. In your face John Moore.
What is the worst advice you’ve heard?
‘You should go and work in advertising as an art director’- Jasper Goodall (my tutor at university)
Most beautiful moment during the creative process?
When people tell me it’s ‘quite funny’ or ‘buy something from my shop’.
What doesn’t inspire you?
My job. (I currently work as an advertising creative for a really nice company, and I’m very grateful, it’s just that making adverts takes about 300x longer than it should, and at the end of every day I want to curl up into a ball and nurse my soul back to health, rather than draw).
What are you proud of?
I can identify loads of plants.
Who would you like to meet or who would you like to work with?
What would you have done, if not this?
An ignorant woman who stayed in the town she grew up in and married someone she didn’t like much, bought a house got a dog and had a baby. I’m pissed off that I didn’t do this on nearly an hour by hour basis coz I would be as annoyed as I am now, just with a house, a dog and a baby…
When was your biggest moment of doubt?
Spelling words. Everyday.
Who is your biggest supporter?
The dopamine hit I get from people telling me they think the stuff I make is funny.
“Romeo and Juliet”
What is to you, the most beautiful sentence?
“This meeting has been cancelled”
What do you still want to do?
Write a successful cartoon for Adult Swim.
Where do you work?
In my small smelly moldy rented flat in the very sexy stoke Newington.
