Nate Williams on the importance of keeping your subconscious well fed

Nate Williams is one of the most prolific illustrators working today. His style is playful, textural, raw and impulsive. He shares great advice for aspiring illustrators and designers as well as his creative methodology for concepting images for his many commercial assignments on his website. In an interview with Communication Arts when asked where his best ideas come from Nate said, “The best ideas are drawn from your experiences. It's important to keep your subconscious well fed with information, history, nature, music, friends, family, conversations, emotions, physical activity, good food. One day all the info will enter the conscious mind in the form of a unique idea.” In addition to his site, he also maintains community portals http://www.illustrationmundo.com and http://www.letterplayground.com. He also self published a book titled Hola Amiga reflecting his personal and visual musings. Definitely worth a bookmark.
