Grace sits down with renowned artist & illustrator Scott Gordley to discuss what it was like to paint James Earl Jones’ portrait, as well as Cher, Madonna, and Michelle Pfeiffer.

He dives into what makes an illustration “smart”, the importance of understanding your subject, and how to bring extra dimension into your work that’ll catch the eye of any decent art director.
