Illustrators, smile! It's not all doom and gloom

Illustrators spread the love on Twitter to remind us it's not all bad news for the artistic community.

With dodgy competition prizes and a fixation with followers devaluing the profession as a whole, life as an illustrator has perhaps been pretty tough lately (well, tougher than usual).

We were happy then to see Colin Kersley aka artist Alternative Aesthetics put out a Twitter call yesterday for illustrators to share positive stories in their lives and happier sorts of interactions with clients. When we last spoke to Colin it was about follower counts deciding the worth of artists, so it's great we're featuring him this time for reasons more positive; find tweets below that brought a smile to our face and perhaps even the odd tear.

See? All's well that ends well.
