An exciting time this month as I am officially underway on my Masters program in illustration. Having done my degree in Graphic Design and then meandered into Illustration I wanted to gain a little more insight into pushing my work…
Whilst I spend all of my time on a commercial basis illustrating pictures digitally (well the final artwork), I love it. it does sometimes feel like there’s the messy part of art missing.
You know the experimentation, the testing process, the repeat of a piece because its not quite right. The playfulness of the artwork. None of this is captured with my digital illustrations unless you save it as a new file each time. As you correct the bits as you go along. The undo button hides any little imperfections and any stray points I add with the pen tool.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
