Learning new stuff

November 27, 2017

I've been looking to do an illustration course for a while but I specifically wanted to find one online which would teach me how to use and market the skills I've already got.  I have dreams, you see, of becoming an actual paid illustrator with an agent and everything.  I don't know how to get there.

I found the Make Art That Sells website a couple of years ago but I was worried that it was aimed at a US audience.  Since then I've seen a few of their videos and content from international illustrators and I thought I'd give it a go.



I've chosen a package which includes a variety of things.  I'll be learning about how to design for different items and areas such as fabric, books, wall art, gifts, stationery - the whole shebang.  Plus next year there will be a new course - Drawing Faces.  This really sold it for me. 



I'm very happy designing things with text in and even creating scenes and landscapes but I very rarely include people.  If I do they are strictly in silhouette form.  Which is fine, but I'd like to not be scared of drawing and creating faces. 


The self portrait I had to do at A-Level was a view of my back and I never even finished it!  If I want to be a proper illustrator I will need to do faces.  SO bring it on!!
