I feel like I need to reaffirm the aims of this blog somewhat as my head feels like a bit of an octopus lately (mental note- that would make a good picture…).
I’ve been doing a lot of reading (and thinking…) about graphic design, illustration and art. I’m trying to decipher the meaning behind what it is to be an Illustrator and how I can apply my skills and experience to this direction in my creative and business development. It is very satisfying for me on a personal level that Illustration is a combination of art, design, creativity, technology and academia. I will be sharing some of my thoughts and ideas on this in this blog going forward.
I’ll also be showing the odd sketch here and there- but personally without any context I don’t think it will be that useful alone. I may from time to time discuss technology and other things I’m interested in like archaeology, animals, history, folklore and mythology. My aim is to make Illustrated blog articles on these subjects.
