If you are an aspiring illustrator, or someone who already illustrates but wants to break into the exciting business of freelance illustration, this fun and interactive course is designed for you. Unlike other instructional courses on this subject, here you will hang out with an internationally published illustrator who will share her tools, tips and trade secrets to not just survive but enjoy life as a freelance illustrator.
The facilitator will take you on a step-by- step tour of her work process; how she conceptualises, designs and promotes her work. You will get hands-on experience to begin a pilot project of your own.
