When you find your type of bird
When you find your type of bird
BY EGLE PLYTNIKAITE
My work is called ‘When you find your type of bird’ and is about a feeling that we experience after finding our type of people. The ones that fully understand and support us, never question our decisions and encourage us to fight for our dreams. Having your type of bird on your side brings a certain type of safety that I wanted to reflect in my illustration. I hope this print will encourage everyone to take good care of those very special birds that we have next to us.

How did you get into illustration? I was always in love with art and kept drawing all my life but I also loved mathematics so I decided to study architecture at Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts. However, soon after finishing my studies I understood that I need more creative freedom than architecture can ever give me and turned back to visual arts. I fell in love with illustration because it allows me to express my ideas in a fast and powerful way and it’s working pretty well so far!
What tools (digital or not!) do you use to create your work? I use Pixelmator and Wacom tablet.
Who or what inspires you the most? People and their stories. It can be anyone – from my neighbour to a Hollywood star. Everyone has an inspiring story to tell.
What's your favourite website for inspiration? Instagram and Pinterest.
What would your dream project be? Actually, I'm working on one now! It's a Nordic-Baltic artists collaboration exploring a human and nature connection via old traditions. You can learn more about it here www.onnorthernroutes.com.
What does a typical day look like for you? No day is a typical day when you are a freelance illustrator but i’m usually juggling a bunch of different projects. But ok, I'll try to tell you how it looks if nothing unexpected happens (which usually does). I try to wake up early but usually fail! Then I write my morning pages with a cup of coffee and get myself ready. I go to my studio and work on a variety of different projects. After a day of sketching, reading, brainstorming and working on the final illustrations I go jogging, have dinner with my husband and read something interesting before falling asleep. But once again, that's a story of a slow day.
What do you do when you have a creative block? I try to rest and to disconnect from everything. I go on long and difficult hikes and sleep a lot. Creative block only appears when I'm burned out so giving some time for myself is the only answer.
