Hi everyone! I’m back, hope you are all doing well.
So I created a two part video to tackle some frequent questions I get asked, like: – how do you get so much done – how to keep a deadline – how do you stay motivated on long projects – how to deal with difficult clients
And in this two part video I try and answer all these questions as best as I can. Hope you find them useful and insightful.
The qualities of each artist type:
And the defects and hurdlers they have to overcome:
If you want to chat more about this topic, I have a Discord server where we hang out.
Feel free to join us, chat will be enabled on all three channels. Streaming artist submission are now closed but you can always message me and join the Facebook group to see when the next event is held and submit for the next one.
For those of you that don’t know what a #QuickDrawCollab is, here is the summary of it:
It’s an event where a couple of artists get together to quickly draw what the audience asks them. It’s the illustrator’s version of improvised theater, and it can be quite fun if you knows the artists and want your fan-fiction brought to life. It’s a great way to get to know your favorite artists and meet new ones.
Hope you had a nice time this end of year, and we wish you a awesome new year in 2018!
We’ve had a good year and reached most of the milestones we set for our selves so we want to take this opportunity to thank you, the fans for all your support!
And since it’s a new year I thought this would be a great time to share this with you. Some of you have already seen similar guides before, others have not.
So just a reminder of how the industry works and why supporting your favorite indie artists is so important. They usually don’t have safety nets and do this out of passion. And at the end of this year I have seen many artists give up or get burned out and I must say the thought of closing up shop has passed my mind too, but I have people around me who still support me and so, I am still here. ^_^
So for those that don’t know these things, please have this list in mind next time you see your favorite artist post your beloved content.
Hello world! My collectible sticker booklet is now on Lulu! Hurrah!
For those that don’t know Lulu is a company that offers self publishing services for independent writers. It’a print on demand website for books, calendar and other similar products. It’s also one of the biggest companies in this industry and thus offers the possibility to then sell your book though Amazon and Barnes n Noble.
While I like the awesome services it offers, prices are not the best and the site is full of bugs and customer support is overwhelmed so don’t expect much help or any help from there.
I’m currently looking into other companies to see what other possibilities I have while I wait for my booklet to get into Amazon which will take between 6 to 8 weeks.
See the representational video for the booklet here:
