Frank Frazetta on Design, Creativity, and What It Means to Be an Artist

I stumbled throughout an outdated video you would possibly discover fascinating. It’s an interview with Frank Frazetta, one of many all-time greats of illustration and fantasy artwork. I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of those genres and even Frazetta’s work usually, however there’s at all times one thing to study from those that have achieved mastery. Frazetta was additionally a mentor of Jeff Watts, who I take drawing instruction from at his atelier.

Advice from a Master: Frank Frazetta

My favourite half is on the finish of the video the place he describes his ideas on creativity and what it means to be an artist:

“Originality, creativity, that’s it. Look it up in a dictionary, the definition of an artist is a artistic one who is completely trustworthy and unique. Bingo. If you wish to look like an artist, you wish to persuade me that you just’re an artist, I don’t care how detailed it’s, I don’t care whether or not it’s lower than good. If it’s unique, it comes from the guts, and makes an announcement that appeals to individuals like me emotionally, I simply love you to loss of life. That’s my advice.”

Benefit from the video! If you wish to study extra, begin with my ​Portray Academy​ course.
