Out of the three days of doing the Creative Futures I would have to say today has been the best. As we had three people who are within the industry I want to be able to go into.
(art by Alex Willmore, colour by Lauren Sharpe) (group of Illustartions by Jonathan Edwards)
The first talk was A Career in Graphic Novels with Alex Willmore and Lauren Sharpe who are ex-students, who first did children illustration and now has change to more graphic novel area. I though the talk they both gave was great as they told to manage our time, try on as much work as possible, keep practicing, go to life drawing session and if we not working in digitally to used quality paper and pens.
The second talk was A Career in Illustration with Jonathan Edwards. Before he came to the talk the night before I checked up the work he did, and I remember seeing one his on a single cover but couldn’t remember who was the artist. while he was talking and showing some of his work I notice the image again and then it check into place 🙂 it was “Black Eyes Peas – My Humps” single http://bigpondmusic.com/images/AlbumCoverArt/250/XXL/My-Humps2.jpg
He was really inspiring to listen to from where he was to where he is now. It just shows if you passion about something you can do it 😀
