Keri Smith-Explorer of the World


I keep finding these postcards and other things I stuffed in my bag after the ICON Illustration Conference. I just stumbled upon a card I picked for Keri Smith’s new book How to be an Explorer of the World. I attended a talk that Keri gave at ICON, and was so inspired by her thoughts on creativity and art making. She began her blog, The Wish Jar as a means of exploring her own creative process and talking about her influences, similar to why I wanted to start this blog. One thing she mentioned that stood out in my mind was wanting to be a rock art illustrator so bad but not being able to find success that way. She didn’t have success until she learned to let go of that idea. I am so there right now.
