Début Art – Illustrators and Artist Agents, London Illustrators, Illustration Agency, Artists Reps and Agents - Illustration Ltd How do I become … an illustrator | Money Cliff Wright had spent years painting woodland animals for children's book's when the call came from publisher Bloomsbury. "They wanted me to illustrate the cover of a book called Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," he says. "I'd never heard of Harry Potter at that point, so it was just another job for me." The first book in JK Rowling's series had been illustrated by a young graduate from art college and, following its success, the publisher had decided to recruit a more experienced illustrator for the sequel. "I didn't have time to read the whole manuscript so I went with their suggestion of the flying car," says Wright, 49. Wright was the first to depict Hogwarts Castle, Hedwig the owl, the flying Ford Anglia and the airborne Hippogriff, and those rough sketches are now collectors' items – the original artwork for Chamber of Secrets raised £85,000 at auction. "A lot of artists can't draw children because their energy is so difficult to capture," he says.

Folio - Illustration agency based in London, UK - Worldwide agents for Illustrators, Artists, Designers Blog — Paul Braddock I wanted a new project to put the Ultimaker2 through it's paces, and try a few techniques to part the model up for molding and casting resin pieces. There's a number of other reasons why cutting up models into smaller parts is a good idea, such as, prints often fail for one reason or another, so if you're only printing parts at a time, it's not such a huge setback if one fails. Another reason is that the size of your model is not limited to your build envelope. One particular challenge in using an FDM type printer for a project like this, is how to handle overhangs, and oddly shaped parts that do not have flat bottoms. While supports allow you to print odd shapes, the surfaces where they attach are typically less than desirable, so I'll be using a few tricks and techniques to optimize, and minimize the negative effects of these requirements. I'll document the process as I go.
