WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
I once stumbled upon an interview with Saul Bass, in which he said: “I want everything I do to be beautiful.” It really made an impact on me. It was something I’ve always thought of, but never heard anyone say it as a direct simple statement. It sounds obvious, but it isn’t always the case. I do try to keep that in mind whenever I’m drawing or animating. It has to be beautiful.
