Considering Art Podcast – Sam Gilbey, digital painter and illustrator

In our latest podcast, Sam Gilbey talks about how he echoed his hero David Hockney in moving from conventional fine art to digital painting. He talks about the advantages of digital, his successful work on popular culture artwork such as posters, book covers, podcast designs, fan art and film publicity, the way he composes his publicity art, his fine art parodies and the advice he’d give to young digital painters and designers.
