I wanted to share something I find very, very inspiring for me, as an illustrator.
One Fantastic Week is a podcast/video interview series by illustrators Pete Mohrbacher and Sam Flegal. They conduct interviews with highly-skilled illustration veterans and newcomers. If you're an illustrator, student, or hobbyist looking for insights into professional freelance illustration, it's well worth a look! With each interview, I find a sense of connection with people of the same craft and passion. And, it motivates me to keep working hard, smart, and with a sense of hopefulness.
