Feature - The Art of Bobby Chiu

Today’s feature is a creative person who I have learnt a great deal from through his work, book and his Youtube channel. Bobby Chiu is more than an illustrator. Not only has he designed for films such as Tim Burton’s version of Alice In Wonderland but has also worked with Disney, Dreamworks and Sony (to merely scratch the surface of his client list).

He is the founder of Imaginism Studio and also Schoolism where he, and other great professionals, tutor and mentor through a wide array of online courses that are all designed to help you improve drawing & painting skills.

I should note that Bobby is also a font of infectious positivity and through his Facebook feed (which you can subscribe to) and also Twitter stream, he regularly posts little snippets of mind bending positivity and it is hard to not be affected by his words.

Added to all this overwhelming skill, talent and flow of motivation, Bobby is also the author of a book (one I have recently purchased and will be reviewing in detail), called “The Perfect Bait.” It is all about improving your skills and making your way in the smoky world of illustration and, I find, that Bobby is the perfect guy to listen to on these subjects.

Here are some note worthy web addresses where you can learn more and follow Bobby and his work.
