Lucas Stolz: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

 Goals, waves, obsession 

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

 I'm a bit of a nomad in the sense that i don't care about my passports or current address and have moved places a lot.  

Why do you do what you do?

 

 If i where rich and didn't need to work i'd do the same stuff. I just like it. 

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

 

I was obsessed with graffiti even as a boy way before i ever painted a wall myself. That got me into drawing a lot which later on led me to study graphic design and illustration. Essentially it's still what motivates me, drawing letters and other things and working on getting a better trace.  

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

 

I think one of the toughest obstacles is self-doubt. Friends and family definitely  help. Also, every time something just goes well and i'm stoked. 

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

On a very practical level the guys at Inocuo the Sign have been (and keep on) inspiring me. They've taught me loads of tricks and have always pushed me to work on my stuff a little more.  And (sounds corny, but) all the people i meet who struggle for doing their "thing" every day, they inspire me. 

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Working for free on stuff that I didn't really care about.  Usually these are the projects which end up being cancelled all together plus the client never comes back with paid work. 

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I just want to keep getting better and keep meeting awesome people along the way.   

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

In this song the other day the guy kept saying "i'm better than i've ever been". I thought that was a nice idea, instead of trying to be better than someone else just trying to be better than you've ever been before. Sounds motivating to me. 

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I'm very happy to be part of this project, thanks Amir!
