Here are some questions:
1.  Your work is amazing and spans all sorts of video games.  How did you get started in the industry?
2.  How much time are you usually given to develop the artwork in any project you're contracted for?
3.  What is the process for making the pixelart?  For example, you worked on The Flash for the Nintendo DS.  What was that like?
4.  You've been working on pixelart/graphics/animation/texturing since the 1990's for a variety of games and companies.  How has your experience changed over the years?
5.  Is there a project you wanted to be involved with that you could never get?

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Being a part of the team on some great Amiga titles, what was your creative input to these games?

Were you a part of any titles that didn’t make it to release during your time?

Which other software house did you admire as been on par with the company you were with throughout your time?

Did any of the software companies you worked with,  ever consider at any point think about releasing their games on Atari Jaguar or handhelds machines?

Do your feel that Thalion Software could have continued in today’s video game market if wasn't for contributions of piracy of the time?

- Which software do you use on the Amiga to create pixel art?

- Do you use a graphics tablet?

- Do you think pixel art has lately been overused? Besides retro video games, the pixel art has now also been used a lot in the board game industry. Could you imagine creating something like that, a card game f.ex. in pixel art?
