|Do you have colleagues with whom you share techniques, tricks, ideas, etc.?
Not specifically. I mean I don't ask an artist whose work I admire how they created a certain technique and haven't really had anyone ask me. I will look for new artists or new work of artists I know, just to see how they might be evolving and what kind of work they are doing. I believe they do the same.
My friend is Axel Ortiz, otherwise known as Axel#13. He keeps me inspired. David Barneda is my reliable friend, always willing to help me out in the Children's Book world. Babbie Peters is my great inspiration to keep everything going. I frequently work with my husband, Tom Doncourt, on design projects. He is a good art director, washing the dishes while I work.
Yes, and some of thee are special friends for me.
Not at the moment.
Not so much. I like being colleagues who have much different styles however
if they have an interesting approach I'll ask how its done and so forth.
Yes. It always helps to get options and advice from others because sometimes they'll see something I don't or know of another way to go about things. And it always leads to a better final product in the end.
Yes, 3 friends of mine. We will share new techniques, ideas with each other and we motivate one and other. it works fine this way.
Yes, I talk to Ted Kim and Charlene Chua on a daily basis.
My illustrator friends and I all have blogs which we comment on regularly and give each other critiques. These are really helpful actually and my family and partner are also getting very good at telling me whats good and what's not!! I can usually be found at uni in one of the technicians' offices learning geeky facts about design packages and software shortcuts or printer settings and paper qualities - sad I know but its a great way to learn things!
i work in a studio surrounded by peers who i admire. Its constantly a melting pot of ideas and technique.
Well, I share my ideas for stamping and turning my stamp illsutrations into fun and unique projects for anyone who comes to visit my blog every day, but I don't really as far as drawing. When I think I'm onto a really good new set, I'll show it to a few friend, family members I know will keep them confidential, as well as my boss for feedback, but usually at the point I'm feeling really confident about it already, but I have gotten some great suggestions from them about different directions I can take the set or more images I can add to them.
Yes, and it is good to have an illustrator lunch, or poker game. And teaching helps for communicating with other artists, even if they are in college or younger.
A few, but I work solo as much as I can.
Yes, many of my friends from art school are also my closest friends now, and even though we work in very different ways and in different industries, we do share how we work with each other.
