Muddy Colors
There is a great new blog called Muddy Colors, that is a collective of the best concept artists working today. One of our guests for this winter's Forum, Jon Foster, recently posted about his thumbnail process, which is something that we all should read and follow. Our friend Bill Mayer does upwards of 50 thumbs for each project, and his success speaks to the benefit of such intensive exploration. So, the big idea is to not fall in love with the first idea that pops into your head; dig deep, then deeper and deeper still until you've approached the problem from every conceivable angle. Let your subconscious lead you to new places, and allow things to just happen. But most of all, have fun!
