Interview
Craig Foster, MSMI, CMI, is an experienced medical illustrator and animator who has produced award-winning visuals for Time Life Medical, major pharmaceutical corporations, medical device manufacturers, and biotechnology companies. A member of the Association of Medical Illustrators and a Certified Medical Illustrator, Craig has formal training in the arts and a graduate degree in medical illustration from the Medical College of Georgia.
Question: What drew you to illustration/design? Craig: Ever since I was a kid I was interested in drawing. Even at that age, I knew I wanted to do something that would allow me to be creative. Question: Do you have any formal design training? Craig: I have a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan and a Master’s of Science in Medical Illustration from the Medical College of Georgia (now Georgia’s Health Sciences University). Question: Where are you originally from? Craig: Dearborn, Michigan. Question: Where do you live now & what drew you there? Craig: I currently live in Peekskill, NY. I was drawn to the town of Peekskill because of the active arts community which provides me with camaraderie and inspiration. Question: Where is your studio and can you describe it for me? Craig: My studio is in the second floor of a historic building in downtown Peekskill. I have an area for my computers, a workshop, and an area for various painting and sculpting projects. Question: Who or What is your biggest inspiration? Craig: My Grandmother and my parents were very encouraging to me early in my life. Along the way, I’ve had many great teachers and colleagues who have provided inspiration and wisdom. I find inspiration everywhere.
Question: How do you get your ideas? Craig: I don’t have a real formula for my ideas, different methods of brainstorming, flow charts, environmental influences, and happenstance all play a role in my idea generating process. Question: Do you collect anything? Craig: I collect experiences and memories, and an occasional pint glass when I stumble upon a micro brewery that I like. Question: What are your interests outside of illustration? Craig: My greatest joy outside of illustration is travelling on my motorcycle. Whether a short ride, a day trip, or a longer adventure, I find that riding helps me stay focused and relaxed. I also like to hike, camp, and occasionally fish. Question: What is the first record you bought? Craig: Van Halen – Diver Down. Question: If you were not an illustrator, what would you be? Craig: I would probably be a really bad guitar player. Question: What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? Craig: Do what you love and the money will follow. Question: If you could take a holiday leaving tomorrow, where would you go & what would you do? Craig: I’d hop on my motorcycle and ride, no plan, no agenda. Question: Do you have any pets? Craig: I have an Australian Terrier named Boo who is convinced she is a person.
