On Friday 29th, we had a hot house talk with a free lancer illustrator named Joe Cruz.
He spoke about his experience when he was in university and showed us his final major projects where he incorporated fashion with children’s stories/nursery rhymes.
He then spoke about the struggles and hardships he had once he finished university, he also told us his experiences in work experiences and internships and advised us to never allow companies to take advantage of our skills just because we just graduated. In my opinion this talk was more humble and down to earth because it gave us an insight from his experiences.
His work now revolves around collage and fashion, where he adds vibrant colors onto monochrome images provided for him. It’s a very playful and experimental method.
