R for Type Collective Welcome to this interview with Romania-based illustrator Ioana Șopov. Share in her experience as an artist, her impressive body of work, her freelance work for global clients, and her future plans as an illustrator. Ioana has a wonderfully diverse portfolio and history of projects, and it’s my pleasure to share her artwork and words of wisdom with you all today. Hi Ioana! Thanks so much for the interview. Let’s start at the beginning: What got you into illustration? Thank you a lot for having me! Well I’ve always been into drawing like all kids are, and it has been a constant hobby throughout my life, though I was never sure I’d be able to turn it into a viable career choice. I was in my third year of studying Interior Design when I attended a local workshop with designers and illustrators and that sort of put me on this track. I started getting freelance work even before I graduated and that was the thing that sealed the deal, so to speak. Ioana herself. Who or what are your main sources of inspiration? I’ve always liked sequential illustrations, comics and graphic novels. One of my first “heroes” so to speak, Matthew Woodson, is a fantastic illustrator who used to create short sequences of amazingly detailed illustrations that just blew my mind. In the beginning most of my personal work revolved around nature and man, and the relationship between the two. I think that influenced my commissioned work as…

Bhartiya City artwork. Today I’m interviewing London-based illustrator Rod Hunt. Read on to get a dose of his intricate artwork, and learn about his experiences as an artist and as chairman of PR for ICON—The Illustration Conference. Plus, you can answer the question on everyone’s mind, “Where’s Stig?” through his work for the BBC’s Top Gear. Let’s get to the point! Hey Rod, thanks so much for the interview! Let’s start at the beginning: What got you into art? Comics were a big influence me, especially British comic “2000 AD”, and the thing that got me drawing as a kid. The man himself, Rod Hunt. Who or what are your main sources of inspiration? Apart from comics, my inspirations would go back to games from my youth on the ZX Spectrum like “Knight Lore”, “Batman”, “Alien 8″, and “Head Over Heels” by Ultimate Play the Game; the isometric ones were particular favorites. I also grew up with science fiction films like “Star Wars”, “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “Forbidden Planet”, and old TV shows like “Flash Gordon” and “Star Trek”. Their design aesthetic definitely stayed with me and their visions of the future are still what I think the future should look like. And of course the robots were always cool! I also owned a few old tin robot toys as a kid, which were amongst my favorite
