I was so honored to interview this influential Graphic Designer. Roberto Blake is truly an inspiration and he continues to master multiple skills in the field of Graphic Design. Here is an excerpt from the interview that will be published in Sharae Magazine this fall.

S- Where do you find your inspiration to create your artwork?

R- I find my inspiration in the world around me and in things I see and read. I will read something in a novel and it will strike a cord, or I will design something based on a set of lyrics in the song and the emotions they send through me.

S -What advice do you have for aspiring Graphic Designers?

R -Learn everything you can, and work toward it every day, get heavily in to working with typography, textures, and photo manipulation, master layout design and typography if you want an early job in the industry and to be taken seriously, and carve out your own path, what was tried and true may not work for you. I took an unconventional route to success that I have yet to regret.

S- Who are the greatest influences in your life?

R -My mother and my uncle. My uncle influenced me heavily in my childhood since he was a talented illustrator and introduced me to comic books and anime, which also are heavy influences in my life. My mother has always fostered my creativity and helped me to stay creative and confident and taught me that dreaming is always worthwhile.

Passion Meets Purpose

I'm very interested in expanding my brand globally. Sharaemagazine is a place for artists, photographers, models, entrepreneurs, etc to network and learn what opportunities there are. By connecting with the magazine they will gain insight on what's happening in the world of Art & Design, Fashion, and Business.

I want to help others make their dreams come true as well as create a sufficient business for my lifestyle. I hope to take sharaemagazine from an online website to a print magazine filled with articles of aspiring artists. If you like the blog please comment and tell your friends!
