5 Not so Creative Questions with Designer and Illustrator Logan Schmitt


For those who don’t know you. Who the hell are you?

I’m just a poor boy from West Virginia who moved to the big ol’ city of Columbus, Ohio with a suitcase full of dreams, doodles, and squeegees.

What do you do?

I’m an illustrator and screen printer. I make posters for bands, design t-shirts, and sling my work at craft shows. I draw lots of pictures of animals, bones, creeps, and flowers…usually with the Dark Crystal playing in the background.

What’s a tip you’d give to people? Something you’ve picked up along the way.

No one is going to do it for you. If you want to do something go DO it. It’s easy to think that things will come to you or someone will tell you you’re ready, especially if you’re going to art school or something like that. Just put in the work and go get it!

What are you into. Or something that recently inspired you?

Well, Halloween just happened so all that fantastic storytelling and imagery is just swirling around in my head. Few things will instantly inspire me as much as a creepy old folk tale or ghost story.

Pancakes or waffles?

I’m going to have to go with waffles. Not restaurant-style or Belgian-style though (although I’m very Belgian, myself). Just give me a box of store-bought Eggos, an unhealthy amount of butter, and a jug o’ syrup.

As a creator, whenever I am in the presence of other creatives I always find myself digging into my bag of go to questions. What do you do? What are you working on? How do you do it? What are you into right now?… etc.

Now with the internet I don’t have to randomly stumble upon these awesome people at get togethers, meet ups, and conferences. Instead I can scour social media and pick from people I am genuinely interested in, from all corners of the globe. If I am going to do that then I might as well share my findings with everyone. This kind of short form questionnaire is a great quick look into the lives of other creative people and allows for repeat visits.
