I recently started watching a video series called Like Knows Like, an amazing series about popular designers and artists where they talk about their career and how they got to where they are. One of my favorites was James Victore. He's not insanely talented at illustration like some of the others (*cough* Victo Ngai *cough*), but he has some very clever pieces that get to the point in a very direct way that perfectly fits his style.
Not only do the designers and artists talk about their work, they also talk about their lives, what inspires them, their friends and family, and their hopes for their work in the future. It's a very honest look at different artists, and more than one questions whether or not they'll be doing what they do into old age.
Unfortunately, Like Knows Like hasn't been updating their YouTube, but they're still making videos, which they share on their Facebook. Their next video is set to come out in 2017, and features Oliver Jeffers.
