You should never stop investing in yourself!!! A few months ago, I had the privilege to take an one-on-one consulting class with Nina Edwards. Nina is an art director, illustrator, designer, and teacher. Most of all,she is a very happy mother of two beautiful children. I have been follow her on Facebook for quite sometime,and always enjoy her great attitude toward her daily life. I have known her through my favorite talented Taiwanese artist Ariel Pang ! She has 15 years experiences in illustration and design fields,and often teach classes at many schools and private classes. Her studio name is Metropolitan Miss Design Studio based in New York. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiry.
I have been looking forward to this class for a while. Finally, I did it,and it was indeed a very informative class,and I had the great time learning from Nina. It is just what I need to get into the professional filed,and I have so many home works to do. We covered from copyright, contract, how to promote myself, and so on. Most importantly, Nina took her time to look through some of my art works,and gave me the most valuable ,professional, and honest suggestions about what I need to keep developing with,and what I should do more when it comes to design my greeting card illustrations. We have not only worked together as a teacher and a student,but also we have become great friends who support each other( It is more of her to support me,and encouraging me!!). I am truly honored to be able to work with her,and gain from her rich experiences.
So far, I have developed a set of 6 illustration designs with one of my signature character designs which I will introduce to you all this month. Also, I have registered my art works at U. S. Copyright Office and will continue to do so as it is the official way to protect my right. I am still going through all the lists that Nina gave me. I hope to movie forward to next step of my art journey. Anyway, I can’t wait to show you guys my illustrations,and greeting card designs that I have been working on. Stop by anytime or follow me on my site to see more updated along the way.
Anyway, I will continue to take consulting classes with Nina from time to time because I know that I will need it. Now, I must get back to the lists that Nina suggested me to do,and adjust myself with a better plan for my art career. I am very excited to get on with my art journey!! Happy Creating !! ^_______^
