Creative Characters S4 E7: Reinventing yourself at any age with Vic Lee.

I had a grade one listed building, all these walls to paint, and no skills. But that was when I fell in love with painting murals. As soon as the pen hit the wall, it was that ‘Eureka moment,’ and I never looked back.

On Creative Characters, we meet creative people working at the intersection of type and everyday life. You can listen below, or on AppleSpotifyGoogle Podcasts, and wherever quality podcasts are available.

Hear Monotype Creative Director Graham Sturt in conversation with Vic Lee, an artist, illustrator, and self-described “ragamuffin.”

After years of doing graphic design work for agencies, Vic was ready for a change. So, he began sketching a streetscape from a little cafe in his London neighborhood — a practice that evolved into a popular local prints project and launched his career as a working artist.

Murals may be what Vic is best known for, as he’s inked them for clients across the UK and internationally. Currently, he’s painting a portrait a day, each inspired by a real person he’s seen out and about.

If you need some creative inspiration or are looking to reinvent your creative practice, this episode’s for you!
