How To Become A Great Artist? 

The next Spiderman movie poster is turning people into trolls on the internet (photo).  

How Photoshop can be a double edged sword even for Hollywood? Illustrator Sam Gilbey just puts it so well:
“If you’re simply moving photos around though, you’re not going to get that cohesiveness that an #illustration can bring you. A skilled #artist can take all those disparate elements and weave them together into a beautiful composition, whilst capturing the aspirational ‘feel’ of a movie at the same time. Of course now the fantastic thing is that as an artist you can use #Photoshop to aid the process. The ‘problem’ is that you don’t need to be an artist to give it a try, or to understand how good compositions and colour palettes really work.”  
Ps: Corporate world, the same rules apply to your next marketing visuals. 😉

Chasing Cars

I remember when I first started 11 years ago, reading magazines and books, dreaming of a huge scintillating Wacom tablet and Steve Jobs’ Mac. No money so I started working jobs (no pun intended) and when I got it, I bought a little tablet and… a PC. Isn’t it ironic? I did upgrade 6 years later but I still have my old stuff. I just wanted to draw and tell stories, I still do. Still learning every day.

The point of all this is: tools are just tools. Remember the famous quote from the Joker “I’m a dog chasing cars, I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it!” We are all chasing tools today hoping they will change us. Make marvels with what you have.

In my case, ideas are born on paper and brought to fruition by technology, not the other way around.
