OFFF 2013: Sara Blake, aka Zso

Computer Arts: Can you give us a taster of what you'll be talking about at OFFF later today? We're looking forward to it...
Sara Blake:
Well thank ya! I never knew that being an illustrator was a job when I was young. Basically, everyone who I've ever looked up to creatively (writers, rock stars, artists, scientists) more or less made up their own job just by pursuing what the loved to do, plain and simple. I think at our core, we're all just who we were as kids. I'll be talking a little bit about how I figured out how to be an illustrator, all the other jobs I had to get there, and then I'll be walking through some of my favourite projects.

I'll show a lot of process images and video. I'll also talk about technique and exactly why working the way I work feels so gratifying to me. Tools aren't really the important part as I see it. There are infinite ways of doing things and I want people to walk away feeling like they already have all the tools and knowledge to do what they love, if they're not already doing it.
