How to Start a Career in Illustration- new blog post here: http://blog.sterlinghundley.com/

In response to questions related to building a career in illustration, I put down some rambling thoughts. Not very eloquent, but to the point:

Excerpt: ” Invest in your career and build your audience. You should seek commissioned work that comes from the top down, as well as creating products that are available to your developing group of supporters from the bottom up. Pursue multiple streams of revenue, and put yourself into situations where you are surrounded by supportive, like-minded individuals.”

Leg·end·eer 
n. legnd-ēr

The author of creative content which is informed through direct personal experience.

The first Legendeer challenge begins today. 

Challenge: Visit an unfamiliar location three times this week that requires you to run, hike, bike, or arrive by some means that requires some physical exertion. You choose the distance, pace and the days. This is to your comfort level only- time, fitness level and distance do not matter.

Once there, sketch, write about, video, or photograph the location. Repeat three times and post results to the Legendeer Facebook group.https://www.facebook.com/groups/226325077539940/

https://www.facebook.com/groups/226325077539940/I aim to challenge the notion of the creative process as the solitary endeavor. I have spent the past several years building a community project entitled Legendeer. Legendeer is the connection between a life well-lived and the creative process. Betterment through the arts and experiential learning are the core principles behind its development. Please join the facebook group if you are an artist, entrepreneur, writer, photographer, illustrator interested in finding your creative voice through personal experience. seek | make | share; Life is story. More to come…

My new organization wallpaper for my desktop. Hot pink and gray? Yeah, kinda feeling that these days. The center illustration is an image I created for my ongoing painting series entitled The Spoils (www.sterlinghundley.com)

Attached is a clean copy, if you care to use, share, alter- drop in your own image/words/color scheme. I’d love to see how they are being used. The image is suited for a 17” display- 1900 x 1200 resolution. Let me know if you’d like it set to a specific resolution size.

Just added a new clean version for your own use/sharing, along with a link to the file.

The Soul of Science

Excerpt from new post on The Spoils blog:

The Soul of Science

"The arts inspire the sciences and the sciences propel the arts. This momentum has reached a fever pitch as technology, design and the connection between the two continues to lower the price of admission for creation…"

Sterling Hundley is a Richmond, VA-based illustrator and painter. A university art professor by day, Hundley’s work has won a heap of awards and been published in an array of magazines. His work (much of which is commissions) runs an interesting gamut from almost cubist-like forms to Mucha-esque women to a Edward Hopper-like painting technique, and at times has everything from a street art feel as well as odes to abstract expressionism. It may sound crazy but you really have to dig through his blog to see what we’re talking about. And, his work is not pastiche either- it’s actually really fresh stuff with very contemporary compositions and very interesting color palettes. We encourage you to follow his blog as he answers questions, shares works-in-progress, sketches and studies.
