I am a body surrendered fully to nature, captured in this house, left sitting on haunches in corners under blankets.
I just can’t stop coming back to this idea of human migrations, family migrations, and plant migrations.
My heaven is / the cosmos is what all that space was built for.
“In illustration, we have to understand the writer's mind as much as we can to make the work.”
I feel like it has made the illustrators' community more connected than I realized before.
“I try and represent many types of beauty to show that everyone is beautiful in their own way.”
“At art school, finding ‘A Style’ was the constant and collective struggle of all of us students—trying to find a way to define ourselves and stand out.”
“Find a unique niche and rock out! Understand that your illustration style is yours.”
“I love that I get to read vivid stories, collaborate and connect with thoughtful and kind people, and learn new things all the time.”
“It’s not enough to consider the content—how am I presenting the content?”
“Always meet your deadlines, do good work, and be easy to get along with.”
“Because Catapult is multifaceted, because our content spans so many subjects, it seemed the Catapult Artist program would really be an extension of what the magazine was already doing.”
“Refrain yourself from throwing things away. Even if you think you’re going nowhere with what you’re creating.”
“When you’re a kid you’re not sure if you don’t know something because you haven’t been taught it or because you’re not supposed to know.”
