We hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s Spoonchallenge! We’re thrilled that you joined us for our creative challenge, and have been inspired by what you’ve been drawing and sharing! To round out the first Spoonchallenge, we’d like to introduce you to the lovely and talented Brooklyn illustrator Julia Rothman who makes art for print and home decor. And in case you missed them, check out our interviews with other amazing artists from this month (Sam Kalda, Leah Goren, Jude Landry, 1canoe2, Sam Larson, Leah Duncan) that are sure to inspire you to keep up your creative habits long after the SpoonChallenge!
What’s your day job? Do you create art or design full time?
JULIA: I’m a full-time illustrator. I make images for magazines and newspaper and patterns for stationery, wallpaper, bedding, fabric and dinnerware. I’ve also authored five books and counting, most recently a book about growing up in New York City called Hello NY. I am also part of a three person company called ALSO which makes design and web work for small clients.
