Monday Viewing: Wendy MacNaughton – Listening to Strangers

Wendy MacNaughton – Listening to Strangers from 99U

We’ve all been brought up on the idea of an artist alone in their studio suddenly coming up with the most brilliant idea. Well, it turns out that most of our best ideas come from listening to people around us, perhaps even strangers. In this video, Wendy MacNaughton, an illustrator and graphic journalist, explains why we really need to be out among others to come up with our greatest work.

So now I want to know: Where do you go to get ideas for new creations?

Megan Eckman is a quirky pen and ink illustrator who never outgrew her overactive imagination. Her work merges the style of old fairy tale illustrations with modern fantasies. When she’s not drawing (and giggling all the while), she can be found pacing her apartment writing more stories to go with her artwork.
