When I was little I wanted to become a colour stylist. Not for Vidal Sassoon, but for Disney. I absolutely loved traditional animation in which each frame was drawn and coloured by hand... that was actually a thing back then (as opposed to computer animation)! Just like a pro I had a cotton glove covering only the pinky to protect it from paint (and avoid possible smudges). Today, the trend is hand lettering, a wonderfully creative way for maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Go to Instagram and have a look at the beautiful drawings a colleague of mine (@instagraemmchen) draws after a mentally demanding interpreting assignment - or sometimes even while still in the booth ;-)
