5 Lessons From 5 Years of Illustrating
Nine books later, here are some things I picked up
Each week, I tell myself I will just be chill and make a CHILL newsletter post. Each week I end up getting too sucked into it. This week’s post takes the cake with 77 panels and over 12 hours of drawing and writing. Oops!
I hope you enjoyed this very long post about these lessons I had to learn the hard way. I hope this helps you in some way so that you don’t make the same mistakes I did.
A small (but big) reminder that…
MY DEBUT AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR PICTURE BOOK COMES OUT IN LITERALLY A WEEK!!!
I have been scrambling to get many things done for this launch! We will be hosting an in person launch at Books are Magic in Brooklyn, NY on October 1st. Come by if you’re able! I would love to meet everyone.
And of course, I cannot end a newsletter post without plugging preorders for my book again! I know you’ve seen this 1000 times already but I have to show my big bad publisher that I’m worth BETTING ON (were you listening earlier?) and one way to show that is with PREORDERS! So once again, below are some ways you can preorder my book and receive free goodies.
Also a small reminder, if you preorder my book through any bookstore and forward your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org, you’ll get a FREE YEAR ACCESS to PAID POSTS!! So for $20 you can get my book, a bunch of free goodies and also a yearly subscription that usually goes for $50!
All these preorder goodies will end in a week when the book comes out so get your preorders in now!
Thanks for your support as always. Here’s to another 5 years of illustrating!
