become a greeting card designer

Do you know you have the talent and the ideas to create amazing greeting cards but have no idea how to get your designs into stores? Then this is the class for you! I have hundreds of greeting card designs that are currently being sold in major retailers world wide.

Students who take this class should already have the artistic skill (this is not an art class) and basic Photoshop skills.

 

shortcuts to map making for illustrators

Illustrated maps are in high demand for both products and publications. Even for a seasoned illustrator, the first time illustrating a map can be daunting. In this class, I share a series of steps I developed through my extensive map making experience to streamline the process. This class is best for people who already know how to illustrate in Photoshop, but are new to the map making process or want to learn efficiencies. The methods can also be applied in Adobe Illustrator or even with traditional media with some adjustments.

coaching

If you are looking for one on one help to advance your career in art licensing, I offer a limited number of coaching sessions a month.

I am uniquely positioned to help artists succeed because of my in-house experience as a lead designer at a large gift and stationery manufacturer where I worked directly with art buyers to create profitable art for products. After leaving this full-time position and starting my own studio, I was able to create a six-figure income for myself in under 2 years.

Each session costs $125 USD and will include:

 

ARTIST QUESTIONNAIRE

Prior to the session, you will fill out a questionnaire and send it to me so that I have the background information needed to conduct an efficient session.

45 MINUTE SKYPE CALL

One on one coaching to discuss your goals and develop actionable strategies for how to achieve them.

PDF OF MEETING MINUTES

Withi 24 hours after the session, you will receive a PDF of detailed notes from the consult.
