Synopsis: As the You Can Do It, Put Your Back Into It exhibition ends, we seek advice and encouragement from a couple of talented illustrators who have made it a point to stay creative, inspired and motivated.
In the first half of the show, we chat with New York City-based illustrator Daniel Fishel about determination, overcoming mighty odds, and finding a positive edge to the tough parts of being an illustrator. Daniel has been a huge advocate for up-and-coming illustrators through his very active online presence and his participation in various creative panels.
For the second half of the show, we have a great conversation with Twin Cities-based James O'Brien about his 20+ year career as a professional illustrator, as well as his experience as both an instructor and mentor in his time teaching, advising and leading in collegiate-level education. Jim addresses some insightful strategies for overcoming fear, the benefits of a visual journal, and some incredibly thoughtful advice on how to keep going if you really want to be in a creative field.
