A native southern Californian, David Galchutt has been working as an illustrator for 30+ years. Though he had done some advertising illustration in his early years, the primary focus of his illustrating career has been in the children’s industry, working for both toy companies and publishing. In 1993 a children’s book that he wrote and illustrated, There Was Magic Inside, was published by Simon and Schuster. Now working as a designer in the giftware industry, he continues to freelance for children’s publications, primarily Highlights for Children. This relationship is especially rewarding as he had a subscription to that magazine as a child. His spare time is spent painting, a passion that never seems to burn out.
David’s love of designing and painting came at an early age. He can cite the moment when he decided to become an artist to a day in kindergarten. He grew up in an artistic environment, his parents having met at Chouinard Art Institute in the 1950’s. His father worked as a graphic designer and his mother studied costume design. These disciplines influenced him greatly, he has a strong design sense and he loves integrating costume into his illustrations.
He was awarded the 2010 award for best children’s magazine illustration of the year (ages 9-11) from the Association of Educational Publishers. The illustration ‘When Cats Dance’ appeared in Highlights Magazine for Children.
David graduated from Art Center College of Design in 1981 and he is happy to report that he’s been working as a professional illustrator since that time.
Wait until all homeworkers gather at the table, and notice who is holding the cup in his hand as he drinks drinks. Please note that the more people participate in the test, the more interesting. It remains just to compare your observations with the results below.
1 - WITH PROTRUDING LITTLE FINGER
A person who uses this position of the hand is likely quite confident in his abilities. He will never compromise and always knows what he wants. Sometimes it can even interfere with the achievement of certain goals.
This type of personality feels great in leadership positions, is not afraid to take the initiative in a stressful situation and perfectly coordinates talented people to do the necessary things. It is not surprising that his friends and others appreciate him, as well as his immediate superiors.
2 - WITH TWO HANDS
They say about such people: "A man with a big heart." Able to listen and hear. This type of character often has to be someone else's vest for the tears of others. This is hardly good, because sometimes there is no time to solve one's own problems.
One way or another, one thing is certain: such a person will not betray and will always try to help, or at least understand the situation in detail. Sensual soul.
3 - HOLDING ON TO A HAND CLENCHED IN A FIST
Pragmatic and calm. Here is how one could generally describe a person with this type of character. A diligent analysis and miscalculation of all the possibilities a few steps forward are useful and necessary traits that, of course, may come in handy sooner or later.
But not everything is as smooth as it might seem at first glance. The constant retention of their own emotions and complex internal dialogues can lead to complex consequences and even stress.
4 - BEHIND THE BASE OF THE MUG
Caution and apprehension are constant companions of such people. The surrounding things should be practical and absolutely safe. And rest from work can always wait, you never know what can happen.
There is nothing wrong with such an approach, as the saying goes: “God saves you safe”, but the world around us is still a little wider and more diverse. And to explore its amazing beauty, you need to at least sometimes leave the house and breathe deeply.
5 - HOLDS THE HANDLE WHILE SUPPORTING THE MUG WITH THE OTHER HAND
Impressive and vulnerable type of character. Needs the approval of loved ones, and we are now talking not only about relatives, but also about friends and mentors. Spends a lot of time in the same places, a lot of nostalgia.
The family is always in the first place, and the weather in the house is the most important part of life. On the other hand, such people are reliable and will not put you in the wheel just for fun. Good, reliable friends, perhaps for life.
6 - HOLDS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HANDLE
A light attitude to life and optionality go hand in hand with such people. They have tremendous creativity and a non-standard outlook on life, while the practical side goes far into the background.
But, if you need to go somewhere or do work that promises dubious benefits, then here we are ahead of the rest. Well, everyone has their own character and outlook on life. There is no need to blame anyone for this.
