Make Art That Sells e-Course Part B

For the past 5 weeks, I've been taking the second part of Lilla Rogers' Make Art That Sells e-course (Part B.) Another round of learning about different industries, this time in paper, children's apparel, scrapbooking, editorial, and party paper. Here are the 5 assignments I did for each week.

Week 1: Paper

Week 2: Baby Apparel

Week 3: Scrapbooking

Week 4: Editorial

Week 5: Party Paper

Week 5: Party Paper

The class was of course, amazing. I came away from the class feeling very inspired and empowered. A few things I learned from the class:

1. Drawing icons. The ah-ha moment that is well worth the price of the course. Coming from a children's book illustrator perspective, it is a little bit different to draw/design art for products and other industries.

2. It is not so scary to be a trend watcher. Or even better, I should start trends! I never liked the idea of following trend and doing "what's hot" at the moment. But this course taught me to make in my own in a comfortable way.

3. Every detail count. I love how Lilla Rogers emphasized on presentation as well as other details. I'm blown away by her attention to details, which I can see makes her agency very successful.

There is so much more to absorb from the class but I hope I keep the momentum going and produce work for these markets. More info of the course can be found here.

And last but not least, a very nice gift from the class was that we got a 6 month membership to Moyo, a surface design directory. Here is my profile, please click the *like* profile button if you get a chance! (you don't need to sign up to do so.) Thanks!
