We had the good fortune of connecting with JJ Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi JJ, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
This answer has changed over time. But since I’ve dabbled into a few fields, I boiled down what my real passion is and what keeps me going. At the end of the day, I love working with others to tell a story. Its something I do im my personal life as well as professional. From costume design to illustration, that has become my touch stone for inspiration. 

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Recently I redefined how I describe my work. I went from Illustrator to Costume Designer. The change was scary because I was unfamiliar with the field, however I have been learning quickly and doing pretty well for myself despite that. I can’t wait to keep growing in this field.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well one of my favorite type of day trips is going to the fabric district in LA, we woild go to the fidm museum and then shop the day away looking at all the wonderful fabrics. And stopping to get little treats from the unique options in LA. Other then that I usually take my friends to fun events like Renaissance Faire. We all get to dress up and have a magical time.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would have to say my friends and most importantly my father. Recently I took a hard left turn in the work I do. And it was thanks to their support that I was brave enough to do it. And I couldn’t be happier
