Personal Work to Job Work.
Everyone has different balance of jobs, personal work, and recharging. I draw all the time, so for the last few years, when I am not working, I rather use that time to recharge (=not draw) so I can get inspired so that I can create more in the future.
Then, where doe my personal creative outlet go?
I luckily have a few clients who let me experiment, and create work I would rather be creating during my free time (if I have any). And here it goes back to today's post: Creative director SooJin Buzelli of PLANSPONSOR and PLANADVISER magazines as being the queen of that.
This is the most recent project I just finished for her. Both of the magazines focus on highly specialized and specific financial topics, SooJin knows how to get the best and most creative ideas out of illustrators by providing only the topic (sometimes just the title) of each article. This article's topic: listening and processing different pieces of advise.
You can see the whole magazine including other illustrations in this issue online.
