I’ve been blogging about my Make Art That Sells (Part A) adventures. It was a five week course focusing on how to approach different markets with your illustrations. Really loved the course and really recommend it!
Make Art That Sells week 5: Zipper Pouch
Make Art That Sells Week 4: Wall Art
Make Art That Sells Week 3: Children’s Picture Book Cover
Make Art That Sells Week 2: Homeware: Plates
Make Art That Sells Week 1: Bolt Fabric
It was completely online, with assignments given each week and a strict deadline for submission. There was a great peer group too, lots of encouragement and help from my fellow participants via a closed facebook group. We covered a new market each week: Bolt Fabric, Home-ware, Picture Books, Wall Art,and Gift-ware and I got a good insight into what a buyer would look for in a submission.
Really looking forward to taking part in Part B starting next March!
