MCAD alum David Schwen, the illustrator of the December theme for Creative Mornings, sat down with them to talk about his creative style and starting his own studio.

After a decade of working in advertising, Schwen decided to branch out on his own, which led to him founding Dschwen, a design studio that partners with brands and agencies around the world. As creative director, he’s garnered new business by continually creating and sharing passion projects.

Schwen affirms the best thing an illustrator can do is to continue to evolve, saying, "You don’t want to be stuck in a style that in five-to-ten years feels old and dated. You can never stop growing as an artist, otherwise you’ll be left on the wayside."
