Fabled Creative Q&A

Fabled Creative is run by power couple Indy & Ron Guyatt.
They both have a background in illustration and graphic design.
With their love of nature and art they Co-Founded Fabled Creative.
We had the pleasure of doing Q&A with the couple, heres what they had to say.

How did you start?
With $1.00 and access to the school’s printer

What is your process? What art tool could you not live without?
Everything starts as an idea. If it’s a subject that needs research then we start there before we start sketching.
If there was research then we make notes about important common factors,
if there was no research then we will usually make a list of things to consider including in the work.

From there one of us does the initial sketch, usually,
Ron does the refined version of the sketch, and potentially a colour test with markers.
Then Indy will render out the digital version usually in Adobe Illustrator,
it then is handed off to Ron to do final touches in Photoshop.

After all that, our screens are produced by Kid Icarus and then we screen print our art in our apartment.
I guess it could be said that we kind of hot potato our work haha.

As for the tool we couldn’t live without; we unanimously agreed upon the pencil.

Where do you get your inspiration?
In the past year or so we have been switching our gears and with that our inspirations have shifted.
Currently, we are a mix of things like space, science, nature, books.
That said inspiration comes from everywhere so it can sometimes be hard to nail down exactly
what it was that lead to the creation of a piece.

Is there anything you are currently working on that you are excited about?
We are always excited to be making new art,
recently we have started working on fabric which has been very exciting!
