We're constantly looking for interesting artists on Instagram. We will be introducing them every tuesday in a series called Introtuesday. Please meet Spokane, United States based freelance illustrator Jacob Greif.
What are you working on at the moment?
Let's see... I'm currently working on some chat bot animations, a concert poster and some engraved wood products that I'm pretty excited about.
What is your work process like, do you approach client work differently than personal work?
I like to learn and take on a wide variety of work, so my process can look pretty different depending on the project. But I'd say my basic process for all projects (client / personal / other) is pretty much the same across the board:
- Brainstorming / Sketching
- Lots of Iteration / Prototyping / Testing
- Final Delivery
- Parades / Acceptance Speeches / Feigning Modesty
Favorite work snack?
What do you do when you find yourself stuck in the creative process?
If I'm out of pretzels, I go for a walk. Getting some fresh air and a change of scenery seems to do the trick. You never know what will spark an idea or solution, so I take a break and let the back of my mind chew on it for a while.
