Curiosity is key! No matter how strange or random, it’s important to explore your ideas and exercise your visual muscles because regardless of the outcome it will always be a learning experience to grow from. Exploring and executing your creative ideas only leaves room for more to come!
Post-college Megan assisted a stop motion animator working on visual campaigns for companies like Fendi, W Mag and Walmart. She then went on to work for Refinery29’s Editorial Photo Team producing and photographing original content along with creating imagery for Smirnoff, Halo Top Ice Cream and Sephora.
Photography by Megan Madden:
I encourage my students to make art that COMMUNICATES by combining pictures and words. Some great examples of this type of art are children’s books, comics, graphic novels and advertisements. These art forms “speak” and dialog with the viewer. They’re like language! And your job as an artist is to learn how to send a clear, strong, simple message to your audience. Your tools are color, composition, texture, scale and DRAWING!
