What better timing for an episode to feature the creator of Wordless News than now? Chaos is everywhere and illustrator Maria Fabrizio tackles as much of it as she can by creating illustrations without captions or descriptions in response to items she finds in the news. In Episode 5 we talk about that process and how it has changed now that she is a mother. She is also a natural early-riser so we talk about the adjustments she has made to her work schedule to accommodate the new early-riser in the house.
Maria is also the author of Cultivating Creativity: Daily Rituals for Visual Inspiration. She is a great example of someone who uses process and routine to keep her work fresh and exciting.
Listen to hear her speak about her experiences with the unexpected nature of pregnancy and giving birth and what she recommends for those that might be considering having children while pursuing illustration. You can find her work at www.mariafabrizio.com and www.wordlessnews.com and you can follow her on Twitter and Instagram @StudioRia.
Thanks for listening and please share with someone who might enjoy it. I love hearing feedback, so don't be shy.
