Episode 04: Magoz
On solving problems, following your intuition and writing effective emails
I talk with Spanish conceptual and editorial illustrator Magoz about how he approaches creative and business problems, his advice for illustrators starting out, conceptual illustration and how to build a database of clients. Magoz is a conceptual and editorial illustrator based in Malmo, Sweden. You might have seen his wonderfully minimal illustrations in The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, Wired and many other publications. Magoz runs a blog where he writes about his experiences as an editorial illustrator, his creative process, how to find clients, how to reach art directors and much more.
Magoz' spreadsheets for building a client database
I mention Sip, an app that allows you to easily sample and save colors.
Notion is a powerful note-taking app that Magoz and I both use and recommend.
