Persistence is the winner

Often times we think we cannot win in some situations, we don’t have the right tools or the right education or even money to get where we think we need to go.

But not all is lost. We have our persistence that goes far beyond any of those boundaries. Its continued efforts are not so forgotten. If we really want something worth fighting for then education or classification of status is easily surpassed with dedication and fueled passion.

Here is some pearls of wisdom by Alva Folkes that I stumbled across while reading some of her blog: You may not be as experienced, as well funded, as well connected, as talented, but you can always outthink, out hustle, and outwork everyone else. The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland–everyone talks about the extra mile, but few people go there.

You may not be as experienced, as well funded, as well connected, as talented, but you can always outthink, out hustle, and outwork everyone else. The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland–everyone talks about the extra mile, but few people go there.
Even when everything else seems stacked against you, effort and persistence can still be your competitive advantages–and they may be the only advantages you truly need.
Power is energy and makes things happen in a good way. – Alva Folkes.

SO when in doubt remember this because it is true and we are indefinitely powerful enough to get what we want if we really want something bad enough!  SO go the extra mile even if you’re not getting paid for it because the return will be rewarded.TIP: People remember the person that did that little something extra because so few do!

Book smarts to get you a paycheck is not the correct way to live a full life, Passion is the gasoline that fuels our drive. If we love what we do then the amount of money we obtain is not the key to our happiness. Giving of yourself of your talents that are more rewarding than any dollar amount.

Being what an Author needs

By now you have decided you want to become an illustrator, that’s great! But how do you go about it?

Well, to start you should already have a portfolio online so potential customers can view some of the already fine works you have been able to produce.

What if I don’t have any past works to show? Well then now is the time to get some made. The work you put in now will pay off later. People are visual, they want to see what you are capable of.  Even if your style may not be everyone’s cup of tea the one that is looking for you needs to see your genre or type of work you can produce.

You need to find your skill that you excel at and stick to that type of Author who is looking for what you can produce.

When it comes to children’s books,elizabethcampbellearth-eye the art must be fun bright and engaging for the ever learning young minds of tomorrow.  The illustrator must be able to do various poses of the same character page after page and be consistent in color and style.
