New Illustrators Let me Help you.

So I have been thinking, I want to help you. Yes, you. I want to share whatever tips and knowledge I can give because as a self-taught artist I have had to go many different directions to figure out what works.

I don’t want you to have to do so much guesswork to getting where you need to be.

SO I decided to share a few of my secrets with you. Want to know how I get customers?

Of course, you do well I am on Kijiji ads quite a bit. And facebook too. In order to get the jobs, you have to find them. A lot of people feel overwhelmed when choosing an illustrator or artist. Why not give them your information when you see an ad for one. It never hurts to try, if they don’t like your style that’s ok too, that is why there are so many of us. Because we all produce something unique to the author. So don’t get discouraged!

And the best way for someone to see you is to be on a lot of different sites. You never know who will be watching or stumble across your profile on the internet so make sure you have plenty. It is work, yes to keep them updated or posting regularly but when you get customers approaching you to inquire you will be happy you did! 🙂

I hope you get something out of this article because as an artist I am not in competition with anyone. I want us all to succeed. So go get those sales!

Namaste,

What’s it about? Cub’s curiosity about life, sparks the question who am I?. Mama bear answers his question with wisdom and love.

A wonderful way to connect us with nature and the universe.

Be Moved by the Movement

I often look around at my surroundings and ask myself what do I need to do to get people thinking?

Well, one thing I can do as an artist is to help engage and enlighten people through my work. I think about the type of work that I do. I use these mediums to get involved in things that move me and make me feel something. I radiate that out and in return, I hope that like-minded people will return to me.

Well, the latest few stories I have been working on have done just that. The latest illustration, the Book called The power of One. It even sounds amazing. It’s through my art that brings the story to life to interpret it to the audience. I am looking to create something that is not just a story no, it is something that will change the world.

The author is the one who has that ability to draw in the audience and with powerful words give the reader that grip on what it is they themselves can do.

This book along with my other illustration for the Book Aware Bear is the type of substance that will stimulate the young minds of tomorrow.

I believe that in order to work at something it needs to have a purpose a greater good.  Working towards things like these are the keys to self-satisfaction that no amount of money can cover. It’s doing things we are passionate about.

And I find that if we are motivated by it. We, in turn, do our best work as well. It is reflected in everything we do. If money is the only motivation it will usually lose itself somewhere along the line because it lacks the more important picture. Being able to help others.

SO when choosing illustrations for books or projects we must always have that passion and feel a certain strong connection to it and that way half way through the job we won’t just rush through to get to the end of it. Not only that money will come more to us if we worry less about that and more about helping others. Sure we all need to get paid but don’t we all do a much better job of something if we stand behind it?

It has to have a meaning to us as well. Ultimately it will have a deeper satisfaction for our own self-worth. And that is priceless.

Namaste
