What advice do you have for students who are accessing the "Illustration" program?
My advice is simple: focus on 6 to 8 different areas of work
What kind of work are you most proud of?
I have some personal art projects that I really like to watch. It's not necessarily my best works, but they're some of my best ideas and ideas, and I think that's what I'm most proud of
What does your creative process look like?
My workflow and process are different from project to project. Sometimes I just do my own thing and ignore all the processes that I learned at school. Sometimes I'm very sorry about the strict list of steps. You just have to find something that will help you, and you'll be fine
In most cases, I go straight to Illustrator and start learning digital information without pen pencils. When it comes to logos or projects, I spend half an hour or more of ideas and create a huge mesh grid. Sometimes the perfect concept goes straight to me, and I'll do it within the hour
What choice do you have to create?
Like most creators, I have a brilliant iMac with ordinary applications such as Illustrator, Photoshop and Adobe XD. Believe it or not, I'm not using the tablet. I've never been a fan, and I just prefer the mouse. I have an iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, which I use with the Procreate application, so I think that it might be qualified as a replacement for the tablet?
Wholesale 5 "× 8 ¼"
is my drawing, because it is the ideal size for travel. I'm not a big sketch fan.
Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil
I also like this mechanical pencil Kuru Toga because it rotates as you draw and the point remains sharp. That's brilliant.

What three books would you recommend to the students ' creators?
Here are some of my favorite books, web sites, applications and Instagram accounts that inspire me and I recommend other students
GoodType Volume 2: Art of Lettering
It's a book that got me in the form of a letter. It made me realize that I absolutely loved the process of preparing the visual letters to life.
Jesica Hische: In progress
This book is a secret weapon of creators. Jesica Hische is my favorite artist. Her book is excellent for the learning process and demonstrates the tools it uses.
If you love Pixar, you will love this crazy story about how they became a company to create the first animated film.
Which applications can recommend students?
For years, I've been experimenting with a few different apps. The following are my favorite applications I use every day to bring my work to life. I strongly recommend that you all
Procreate (iPad Pro): $13.99
This is a great application if you want to use a digital picture, sketches and letters. There are many possibilities for brushes, feathers, and options that you can literally spend on a whole day. The layout is clean and professional, and the application, in general, is very easy to use. You can save multilayer files as PSDS, so that there will be a break between Photoshop and Photoshop! I highly recommend it! (ALL)
Adobe Draw (iPad Pro): free
This is the mini version of Illustrator. It has many of the same functions as Procreate (digital art, sketches, etc.), but you can save multilayer files as Illustrator files, which is great. The markup is a bit different, but when you learn how to use the built-in sensory gestures, creating art is an amazing experience.
Adobe Lightroom CC (iPad Pro): Free
If you are a type of creator who is referring to photo editing and photo editing, then the Lightroom CC-is certainly an application you need. I would say that this application is almost as powerful and rich as its desktop companion. You can quickly import or export photos from your library and even publish photos directly in social accounts! Very nice.
Adobe Photoshop Express (iPad Pro): free
Like the Lightroom CC, PS Express is a really beautiful version of Photoshop. You can quickly edit photos, save, export, or even publish directly from the application. One of my favorite features is the ability to synchronize with your preferred cloud application (Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, etc.), so if you travel or can't get to the computer, you just can't get access to the photos! (ALL)
VCCO (iPhone): Free
This is the only application for editing photos I use on the iPhone when I publish articles or publications on Instagram. He has everything he needs in a mobile photo editor. You need some time to learn about opportunities and tools (much more than Instagram offers), but after you are comfortable, your Instagram game will be out of schedule! Another thing that the VCO's department is is that they can post quick tips and tricks from influential photographers every week. Always cool to learn from industry professionals and use what they teach in your own photo. Happy snapping! (ALL)
What three Instagram accounts would you recommend that the creators follow inspiration?
I have more than three Instagram accounts that I would recommend to other creators. It's complicated. I believe my first three accounts, which I love almost all their posts, are
Goodtype | Power in Letters
For the love of letters A through Z, connecting all the strokes with all the people
