Creative Playdate Episode 6: Kyle T. Webster

Keith-Negley-Please-Say-Please-Illustrator-Parent-Children

[Editor’s Note – IA is excited to begin syndicating all future episodes of the Creative Playdate podcast right here at Illustration Age! We’ll have a more permanent home for all available episodes soon, but for now feel free to enjoy Michelle’s interview with Kyle Webster and find more episodes here.]

Today I am pleased to bring you Episode 6 of Creative Playdate with the incredible Kyle T. Webster!

As I mention in the episode, you should really go to his site and watch his “Meet Kyle” video. He’s come up with a great way to show his personality and interests to the world.

Kyle is an award-winning illustrator, author and illustrator of the children’s book Please Say Please!, and creator of an impressive line of Photoshop brushes that mimic hundreds of traditional materials, and then some.

Kyle often uses his Photoshop brush business to raise money for important causes, so be on the lookout for those in the future. He usually announces them on Twitter and I will do my best to signal boost those fundraisers.

In the episode, Kyle and I talk about his work and his experience as a parent of two children. His wife is the primary caregiver to their children which allows him to keep very regular work hours. We talk about how he is able to stick to that schedule without being tempted to work tight deadlines during times when he should be with his family.

Kyle and his wife have also made the decision to keep photos of their children off of social media. We discuss that decision as well as their approach to screen time with their kids.

You can find Kyle’s work at www.kyletwebster.com and you can follow him on Twitter @kyleTwebster and Instagram @kyle.t.webster.

The show is created and produced by me, with theme music from Thomas James and Jason Ritz. You can find out more about myself and my illustration at www.michellekondrich.com and you can follow me on Twitter @MissIllustrator and Instagram @mkondrich.

Thank you for listening and please take a second to rate and review on Apple podcasts so that more people can find the show. And, of course, share it with a friend or colleague who could use the support of other parents like us!
