Schlock talks to Kathleen Jennings

Bag2My favourite illustrator chats with Schlock Magazine about art, creating and agonising.

How do your creative processes differ when you’re working on art or writing, if there is any?

In writing, I write then agonise. In illustration, I agonise, then draw. The first half is where the discovery happens, the second is where it is refined.

I push ideas further in illustration – not that the viewer can tell! When writing, I’m conscious of being conservative and protective of my characters. The illustrations feel more representational to me.

But they are both forms of storytelling, and I keep finding out new ways in which the lessons and principles of one form can be applied to the other. Movement, detail, simplicity, contrast, focus…

The rest is here.
