Most Illustrators and artists have a fond love of the written word mainly because Illustration works with words to help tell the story that the words are creating. My advice to any Illustration student is to ( if you don't already :)) read a lot, novels, comics, picture books and magazines, any genre and every genre to inspire you in your work and see how the images work with the words. This is just my personal opinion as I love books and words and picture and how they work toghether and so I try to get everyone to read a lot :lol:. Granted my little cousin did tell me off recently because I always buy her books, I mean it was a classic, but she did tell me that no matter the fact it is treasure Island, children do not like books... oh she said and girls do not usually like pirates. I decided that maybe I should remember that not everyone loves books as much as me.
Anyway, after that ramble, for those of you who do love words and reading, my friend who is a writer has just started his own blog, with essays, stories and photos and other such randomness, so i urge you to have a look and read his work. http://mattjcresswell.wordpress.com/ as he is quite talented with the written word.
Anyway that is my news for the day, the Illustrations for the second Issue of the comic book are coming on well, at least to em they are.
Hope everyone is doing well whatever your endeavers are
