Illustrator and author Cory Godbey has just completed a new series of illustrations for a show based on a selection of folk tales. Based in South Carolina, Cory has shared his time to answer some questions, including an explanation into his work process, as well as the tools and equipment he used in creating these pieces.
1) How did you get into the kind of illustration you do now?
Speed was the name of the game and the turnaround time of pieces painted in Photoshop versus traditional watercolor couldn’t compare. For what the final illustration needed to be, straight Photoshop coloring worked great. My method had evolved a bit to incorporate more traditional methods with the digital side of illustration.
2) Can you run over your work process, including the tools and equipment used for this work?
3) What is the market like at the moment for children’s illustration do you think?
4) What are you currently working on and what’s in the pipeline?
Good luck Cory!
