June 2017 - Battling Creative Block

JUNE 2017
HOST JAKE PARKER

Creative Block: We've all been there. Maybe you're under a tight deadline, or you've just received an important art assignment, or you've finally got freetime to create something, but the muse isn't there. You just can't come up with any ideas! This month SVS tackles a problem that plagues every artist.

Professional artists Jake Parker, Will Terry, and Lee White discuss what causes creative block, and give their advice on how to combat it, and ultimately prevent it from happening in the future.
