Known for his concept-driven approach to topics ranging from the bizarre to the mundane, Brian Stauffer will lead a discussion about the process of distilling written words into conceptual illustrations. Brian will discuss smart ideas as the foundation of a long and relevant career, and how it helps artists stand out from the ever-changing ebb and flow of popular styles. Case studies will be shared as he discusses breaking through creative fears and blocks to collaborating with art directors to selling your smart ideas to the editors.
