Illustration Insights Podcast – Illustration Block Party 2018 Edition! (Dan Woodger)

Dan Woodger is a London based illustrator who has a bold style, usually a baseball cap and smile. And he spent some time with us up in Manchester, so we recorded it.

The Dan Woodger Illustration Block Party Podcast is an ideal listen if you are someone looking to develop your creative skill set. Dan is a fantastic example of someone who jumps straight in at the deep end, and swims.

And he knows what it’s like to chase his creative passion.

Trying to avoid just always saying ‘Yes’.

Dan talks about the anxiety around winning work, how he’s built personal connections and why it’s important to avoid ‘fads’. Additionally he talks about nailing down a ‘style’, and why that’s important.

If you haven’t seen Dan’s work, you really should.

By winning work first and figuring out how to make it happen after, Dan has learned the hard way about being client facing. Particularly working with Line and Pepsi.
