|Do you have colleagues with whom you share techniques, tricks, ideas, etc.?
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.
I have a friend who is very good in typography. She is better in technical drawings, while I work more from my emotions. We follow each others blogs.
I watch a lot of blogs. When I like someones style and think their work is inspiring, I become a follower of their blog.
I teach, that's enough
Yes, mostly old classmates
Of course! Plenty of times I get my ideas simply by seeing what my peers are up to. Their advice is also very important to me because they are the harshest critics because they know the difference between mediocre Illustration and excellent illustration. We have our own forum online where we can upload art and bounce ideas around.
No, I discuss the details of a project with the client only
I usually share techniques and ideas with illustrator friends, because we're able to focus on what we need to strengthen. Feedback is always helpful!
I feel like the one main important part of art school is getting to know your colleagues. We all get so inspired by each other and often share new artists that we're currently stoked on. Working in a class room with so many other creative minds makes this kind of crazy creative energy that inspires all of us to do better work. We all feed off each other.
Yes one friend. I need more networking.
Of course It's only natural to talk to friends and colleagues about how you did this or that, what process you used how you arrived at your results, comparing notes and such.
