Artist Round Table Episode #3 with Mallory Carlson
Good day friends! Over the weekend, I once again hung out with some of my art friends to bring you another conversation about being a professional artist today. You'll notice I was not in Episode 2, as I was speaking on a panel at a local writing conference that day. But I was glad to be back, we had a great conversation.
This time we interviewed Mallory Carlson. We talked about not shying away from the things that are your weaknesses in art, because if you take the time to really work on those things, they will soon become your strengths. We talked about the challenges of taking care of our bodies and taking time to socialize and other things that are important that we sometimes neglect as artists. We also talked about where we are most inspired.
It's a great conversation to listen to while you draw today! If you like it, share it with friends!
In other news, I also need to mention that the game I helped illustrate- Wizards of the Wild was successfully funded on Kickstarter! In fact, it ended up being funded way over the original goal mark! And since the project reached so many stretch goals, I get to illustrate 2 new characters! I already have them designed and ready to color! Thanks to all the backers!
