Rude Gal Of the Week- Robin Clare
4. You have worked with many different people/ companies on projects,
what has been your favorite so far?
I've really enjoyed them all, collaborating or being commissioned by companies has always presented great challenges and pushed me in directions I'd never have gone in otherwise. I've especially enjoyed working with DanceJa and it's founder Latonya Style, she's such a creative and motivated person, it's great when you can get that energy and vibe going.
5. How did you fall into the line of work you are in now?
I've always loved drawing and working with my hands so it was just a natural progression I suppose.
6.Is there anything that would surprise someone out side of your line
of work that occurs sometimes or that may have happened to you?
I'd say a lot of people seem to be surprised at how much discipline I have to have. I have to be very self motivated and the pressure at times can be intense when I'm working to a deadline, so time management is a very important lesson I've learned.
7. In your line of work who would you consider the "top dog" ?
There are loads of top dogs in the art world. My list of personal heroes is massive, here are a few off the top of my head - Tony McDermott, Sheppard Fairey, Ferry Gouw, Steve Powers & Mr Nurse of Nurse Signs
8. 5 years from now , where do you see yourself career wise?
Doing what I love best :)
9.Is there anything different about some of the projects you've worked
on that you would want to do differently?
Not really. Every project offers a learning opportunity. I try not to look back on projects and say what could I have done better, that will just drive a person mad. I prefer to look at them and reflect on what I learnt and how I can apply the lessons to the next projects.
10. What some advise you would give someone who aspires to do the same
thing you are doing?
Be self motivated; Use fear and uncertainty as creative fuel; Keep going.
