When saying no at work can be a good thing for your career May 26, 2015 6:00 am Dan LeFebvre If your first instinct is to turn something down, there’s probably a good reason for that. Before disregarding your instincts, try taking a step back and considering the impact agreeing to do whatever you’re asked can have on your work. It’s a common scenario in any studio: You’re in a groove and your colleague pops over to ask if you’ll give them some feedback on their latest work. How many times have you just wanted to say “no”? How do I become … an illustrator 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.

Planeta Tangerina: best european publisher Print’s Hand Drawn Illustration Competition Finalists New Girls Club by Michael Byers (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) Materials Used: Ink and Digital Color Artist’s statement: This piece was for an article about a woman who started a new financial service company directed towards helping women in financial crisis. This brave illustration project made a D&AD New Blood judge cry University of Lincoln creative advertising graduate Tom Watkins reduced a jury member to tears during judging for the D&AD New Blood Awards. His project, When I'm a Dad, is a highly personal response to a New Blood brief from WeTransfer: envision the person you'll be in 10 years time through illustration. Watkins illustrated a beautiful children's book to inspire future fathers and launched a website to help grow an online conversation around the project. "Such a brave, personal and unique take on the brief, with a beautiful sentiment and a maturity that belies the age of the author," said the judges. We covered the project back in March – you can read more here.

About Will Terry Will Terry Illustration About Pro tips to help you find your inner artist From the beginning of my career as a young artist, the worlds of JRR Tolkien have inspired me to create art. From Frodo to Boromir to Saruman, I love to delve into their psyche and create images reflecting the turmoil and conflicts that rocked their world, and in a way mirror our own. My earlier attempts at portraying the riches of Tolkien's writings had always fallen short, not just at the technical level but on the conceptual as well.

Surreal Photographs Mix Wes Anderson And Salvador Dali Photographer Todd Baxter doesn't try to capture real life in his photos. He's a narrative artist whose medium happens to be photography. "I have these ideas for a scene—like two kids looking into a glowing hole at night in the woods ("Owl Scouts") or the aftermath of a burglary with a couple tied up in their living room ("Bound and Gagged")," he says, "and I try to make them happen." His photography isn't photorealistic: It's staged, slightly off-kilter, and just a bit surreal. He uses a camera, but his work is less photojournalistic than it is painterly. Baxter's 2010 series "Owl Scouts," a narrative series that depicts Boy and Girl Scout kids getting lost in the woods, reveals how adeptly photography can be used to evoke fantasies rather than to capture real life.
