National Art Honor Society: Talk with Lisa Congdon

 I had the opportunity to talk with illustrator Lisa Congdon speak at the SCAD Guests and Gusto series earlier this week and I wanted to share some of the things I learned. Lisa's work is terrific and she shared that many of her projects with companies come directly from sharing her personal work on social media. She also was asked about her color choices and shared that she will sometimes us a Dictionary Of Color Combinations to infuse interesting combinations of colors especially now that she works digitally on Procreate more often than using traditional gouache paints which had a more limited palette.

I was also able to ask a question about representation which was followed by a question on pricing art and she shared a great resource, Jessica Hische on Pricing Art and the Graphic Artists Guild handbook.
