Stacie Swift and I will be holding a workshop called Insiders Guide to a Career in Illustration at Smug on the 23rd of February. We will be talking about everything from putting together a portfolio, a finding work, negotiating contracts, and dealing with the business sides of things, as well answering questions and giving portfolio reviews. Plus there will be cake! It should be a really fun but informative Sunday afternoon, taking place at the beautiful Smug boutique in Islington.
This workshop would be perfect for an illustration student, or an aspiring illustrator who wants to turn their hobby into a career. Places are limited as we only have 15 tickets available.
Professional illustrators Emma Block and Stacie Swift give you the insider’s guide to a career in illustration.
If you are looking to give your illustration career a kick start this seminar will share with you the tips and tricks of the trade you need to get started.
