    Your Creative Voice - Part 1

    Your Creative Voice - Part 1

    In this episode we take a run at the old chestnut that is the creative voice (for what we are sure will be the first of many such visits), looking at what your creative voice actually is and why it is useful to you as an illustrator or creative in any field. We discuss being authentic, the importance of balancing creative success with commercial success, the joys of collaboration, Elvis Presley and Frances' love of magicians.
