Some Preparation for the 100 Day Project
Side A: Preperation.
There are several preparations to be made for the 100 day project. One of them is re-watch the beginning portion of Tom Froese’s 4 hour Style Class. As well as do the inspiration case study.
I took some notes for elements I could visually quote in my own work. And I went further to find a video of the artists work to learn the ‘secrets’ of making the work. I think one of the ideas I’ll be holding on to while doing my 100 Day Project, would be, “Illustrating under the influence of a handful of artist I admire”.
Side B: The flawed element
There is one element of my work, one flaw that is always pointed out to me, by Mentors, Publishing Directors, and teachers. But I never really got how to fix it. I was prescribed ‘Martin Haake’ as one who has solved this quirk in my work. And while love his work, it’s only from listening to his talk could I find the solution I was looking for.
I’m not going to tell you what the flaw in my work is or the solution. Not today anyway. But I wanted you to know that if you want to learn from an artist directly, sometimes all you need to do is google.
