What an absolutely inspirational guy.
He hosted a lecture today, which was just insane. The information he had to offer was so valuable and motivating. Some other illustrators (for memories sake) we've seen talk so far:
Alice Stevenson - http://www.alicestevenson.com
Tom Gauld - http://www.tomgauld.com
and then, James Jarvis - http://www.flickr.com/studiojarvis
Some of the gems:
"I used to just take out a fishing stool with me and sit and draw landscapes, whatever was in front of me. Years later I returned to these sketches and realised their value, and ended up using them in my degree shows."
"Always try to reference the cultures that you love through your work, there's more passion and interest in it this way."
"I just went around with my portfolio and showed it art directors every week."
"College is where you have time to draw."
