Chris Buzelli


1.) How do you manage stress?

Sometimes I take my dog for a walk. Sometimes I just call it a day, put the paints down and hope for better the next day.

2.) What was your favorite professional assignment that you ever did?
Tropen museum posters. http://www.drawger.com/buzelli/?cat_id=538;
Start at the bottom of the link to get the intro.

3.) What do you do when you can't come up with ideas? How do you overcome 'block'?
Start thinking about things that I want to draw. Try and incorporate them into the concept that I'm working on.

4.) What was the first illustration job you had and how did you get it?
I got a small spot illustration with a medical magazine. I got it by dragging my portfolio all around town and talking to art directors directly.

5.) What advice would you give an aspiring illustrator/student?
It's not an easy profession. It took me about 7-10 years before I could call it a full time job. It takes years of practice and dedication.
