Episode 57: Controlling Chaos as an Artist

This episode of Illustration Isolation features photo ref by the talented commercial photographer Travis Carroll. Featured artists include Cassandra Loomis Kim, John English, Bill Koeb, Raymond Bonilla, and photographer Travis Carroll. Topics covered include professional development as an illustrator, inspiration as a photographer, and fostering a great environment for creative production.

We discuss the complex nature of working with different departments on a production or project, and how Travis stays true to the goals of his assignment, while staying on course. Travis shares a TON about where he gets his inspiration as a photographer. We also talk in length about his experience as a retoucher on commercial photography and how he’s not too far off from what we do here at Illustration Isolation.

This is also the official episode welcoming Raymond Bonilla to the status of “Art Dad”. Congratulations Ray!
