ClipartKorea: Interview with Olga Guiskaja

Updated: Mar 20

This week's article covers an interview with Olga Guiskaja, a Lithuanian creator who is loved for her trendy and luxurious 3D works. Meet her and her life of pioneering new paths without being afraid of change and challenge.

Q. Please introduce yourself.

I am 34 years old, born and raised in Lithuania, but now residing in Germany. I am married and have two children. I work full-time with stock platforms and am passionate about my work.

Q. How did you start your artistic career?

As a child, I attended an art school where I was immersed in painting, drawing, and ceramics. This experience marked the beginning of my journey in art, where I learned about composition, academic drawing, and was introduced to the broader art world.

Later, I pursued my studies at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, majoring in interior design before moving on to architecture. In 2013, I relocated to Germany, where I spent three years working for a wood construction company, followed by five years at an architecture studio.

Q. How did you start your career in the field of stock images?

In 2020, feeling confined by office life, I experienced a shift in perspective, craving more freedom and independence. I aimed to distance myself from the rigors of technical drawing, planning, and the various challenges inherent in building design and the construction process.

Given my longstanding passion for 3D graphics and visual expression, I naturally gravitated towards exploring opportunities in 3D home staging and setting up a photo studio as my initial venture. I began with the photo studio as it seemed more straightforward to set up. I prepared the space and started to seek out clients. With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, advisories were issued against leaving home and engaging in person-to-person contact.

This prompted me to search for alternative paths. This exploration led me to the world of stock platforms, marking the start of my journey as a stock content creator. The role resonated with me to such an extent that I decided to fully commit to it, setting aside all other projects and plans.

Q. What software do you use the most frequently?

I use Blender for 3D modeling and rendering, complemented by Photoshop for image retouching. Occasionally, I delve into motion graphics using Blender, with further editing carried out in Adobe Premiere. I also continue to engage in photography from time to time.

Q. What is your approach to the fast-paced, changing trend of graphic design?

I maintain a positive outlook, embracing changes and staying abreast of trends and innovations. I believe this approach invariably leads to positive outcomes and ensures that our work remains engaging and dynamic.

Q. What is the most important thing that you keep in mind while searching for references?

I always prioritize practicality when seeking inspiration, focusing on how to innovate from existing ideas while meeting specific needs. I continually envision potential buyers and the practical applications of my creations, tailoring my work to suit those uses.

Q. What would be the crucial element(s) that change the quality of the content?

The idea should be presented with clarity and ease of understanding, free from excessive details. Harmonious colors and visually appealing composition are essential.

Q. How did you get to know ClipartKorea and TongRo Images, and what are the things you especially consider while uploading the content here?

I came across ClipartKorea and TongRo Images through posts by fellow stock authors on Instagram, who shared their experiences. Inspired by their stories, I submitted my application to become a contributor and was overjoyed upon acceptance. Upholding the high-quality standards for content submission is paramount.

Q. What would be your advice to the new artists, especially in this era of AI-generated images?

I advise new artists to embrace hard work and determination. It's crucial to be a lifelong learner and stay current with industry trends. Being a stock author is a fulfilling career that offers both financial rewards and creative freedom. The investment of effort is truly worthwhile.
