Am I a writer because I write?
"…in my younger years I did a lot of thinking and obviously talking myself out of doing a lot of things, Just stop that. Try to kill that voice and just do, and by doing you’re already creating and you’re some kind of artist… and, no one can take that away from you." — Lisa ( Learning Designer, Writer, Comedian)
The ruler's always straight.
"Instagram … that's basically my second portfolio. I have gotten more work using my Instagram page that with my regular portfolio. It's because I am able to share my process." — David Soto, Graphic Designer, Hand Letterer, Forever a student.
Superheroes to Supermodels.
"I think I've learned to go, OKAY it's fine to put this one (project) hold, maybe draw something else, maybe go for a walk, go for a drink ... I've learned to take it easier on myself and not put so much pressure to make it happen."
— Justin Teodoro: Artist and Illustrator.
Clarity, simplicity and impact.
"The hard part is for some people is allowing themselves TO be that simple, and overcomplicate it, not more is better, but to overthink it … sometimes you're just done, you have it. It might take five minutes or it might take 3 weeks—but just stop when you know you have it.”
— Michael Braley: Creative Director, Designer, Simplifier.
