Jessica Hische : Inspiration
We introduced you to Jessica some time ago in the pages of DTG. While revisiting her, we discovered a lively piece she's written called "Inspiration vs. Imitation" ... I think all creatives should read it ...
Every now and then I get a really lovely email from an aspiring letterer that is about to publish a passion project of his or her own. They tell me my work was an inspiration and that they can't wait to share their creation with the world. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside for a moment -- until I click on their link and realize that much of what they intend to publish is nearly a direct tracing of my work.
