Tony Merrithew Interview

Tonight I thought I would post about a good friend of mine who has been a great inspiration to my own art and has helped me out a lot by providing tips and tricks and also just really cool stories about doing his own work when he started out at Will Vintons.

Below is a fantastic interview with Tony that's well worth a read, I have taken a small portion from it below.

Check it out HERE

What wisdom could you give us, about being an Artist? Do you have any tips you could give?

Keep in mind that when doing commercial work for a studio it isn’t necessarily the way you’d do it if it were up to you and in your own studio but it still requires 110% of your effort and can be a tremendous learning experience. As far as being a fine artist goes, stick with your own style and don’t try to jump around to what’s hot or trendy at the moment. You’ll be happier expressing what’s in your own heart in the long run.

You can check out more of Tony's work through his Website and also his Facebook page where he is always posting cool stuff
