The first interview I’ve done since lockdown began, for this week’s episode I chatted with experienced illustrators, authors and educators Helen Stephens, Katie Chappel and Tania Willis about their joint project, online art school The Good Ship Illustration. In this four-way Skype call we talk about the magic of imperfection, how to find your creative voice in a world that wants you to conform and the magic of flying your freak flag for all to see.
Things We Talk About In This Episode:
- What’s great, and not-so-great, about conventional art education
- The balance between profitability and individuality, and where mainstream advice often goes wrong
- Creating an online class for the first time, and building a mailing list
- Why it’s so hard, and so important to get to grips with your own creative voice
- The magic of imperfection in all things
