On putting more of you into client work.
Excerpts from a conversation I had with Owen Davey. It’s blatantly obvious to me now, but it was revelation the first time I heard it. I thought it might help you too!
What is particular about the way you see the world?
“I don’t know anything that others don’t, I just see the way a particular way, but everyone does. Everyone can look at the same pear and you’ll get 100 interpretations of the same pear”
What interests you?
“It’s really about knowing what you like to draw, what interest you, and try to bring that into the client work.”
How can you get that into client work?
“For example: I really like drawing flowers now, and if I get an assignment to illustrate an article about a moving house. I will try to focus on the part about moving plants.”
